After 7 people have been killed and and at least 48 injured after a van hit pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday, and then three men got out and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market. Donald Trump has hit out at Mayor of London criticizing “political correctness” in apparent bid to make political headway out of the outrage.
The Independent reports:
[Trump] commented on the fact that the attack did not feature firearms, in an apparent contribution to the US gun control debate. He tweeted: “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!”
Last night, as the news broke, Mr Trump used the atrocity to justify his travel ban against people from certain Muslim-majority countries. This morning the Mayor of London issued a message of defiance in the face of terror, arguing that the general election should go ahead as planned on Thursday to show that Britain would never be “cowed” by terror. “One of the great things about our way of life is our democracy,” he said.
