Donald Trump has launched a fresh attack on Sadiq Khan after the London mayor criticised the president for playing golf while a hurricane approached the US.
Taking to Twitter, Trump termed Khan as “incompetent” and slammed him for increasing instances of knife crime in London.
Trump wrote on Tuesday (3): “The incompetent Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, was bothered that I played a very fast round of golf yesterday. Many Pols exercise for hours, or travel for weeks. Me, I run through one of my courses (very inexpensive). President Obama would fly to Hawaii. Kahn should focus on
“…”knife crime,” which is totally out of control in London. People are afraid to even walk the streets. He is a terrible mayor who should stay out of our business!”
Over the weekend, Trump cancelled a trip to Poland to join commemorations for the 80th anniversary of the Nazi invasion saying he wanted to stay back in the US to deal with the Hurricane Dorian emergency.
But he was soon spotted playing golf at his golf club in Virginia.
At the ceremony in Poland on Sunday (1), Khan told Politico:”He’s clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course.”
Khan, who is London’s first Muslim mayor, also slammed Trump saying things that are “deeply objectionable” and amplifying “tweets of fascists.”
Trump “is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable. If I don’t stand up and call that out I think I’m doing a disservice to Londoners who chose me as their mayor.”
