Donald Trump has mocked the London Mayor’s calm reaction to the London terror attack and appealed to get his controversial Muslim travel ban back on the table –all in one day’s work.
The focus of these tweets was the London attack that saw the UK’s capital under a terror attack by 3 extremists Saturday June 3, leaving at least 7 dead and over 40 hospitalised.
Trump began his presidential twitter response to London's terror attack, softly, with: "
Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U. K., we will be there - WE ARE WITH YOU. GOD BLESS!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2017
but soon followed up with
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2017
And later still came a tweet mocking London’s (Muslim) mayor’s measured response.
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

Like father like son:
Trump’s tribe are known to have spoken of London’s Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan in less than flattering terms, as per his son Donald Trump Junior on the Westminster attack in March, the last time that London was hit by hate.

"You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
