Lon­don Mayor hits right back

The Herald - - TRUMP VISIT -

LON­DON mayor Sadiq Khan has hit back at Don­ald Trump af­ter he ac­cused him of do­ing a “very bad job on ter­ror­ism” in the wake of last year’s at­tacks in the UK cap­i­tal.

The US Pres­i­dent, who has clashed be­fore with Mr Khan, also ac­cused him of fail­ing to ad­dress crime, sug­gest­ing immigration was re­spon­si­ble for prob­lems.

Mr Khan said the crit­i­cism was “pre­pos­ter­ous”.

Mr Trump made the com­ments in his in­cen­di­ary in­ter­view with the Sun news­pa­per in which he also poured scorn on Theresa May’s plan for a soft Brexit.

Mr Khan said: “The idea to blame immigration from Africa is pre­pos­ter­ous.”
