London terror attack: In an apparent dig at London Mayor Sadiq Khan, United States President Donald Trump on Sunday said that even after 7 deaths, the former has said that there’s ‘no need to be alarmed’. “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is “no reason to be alarmed!'” Trump tweeted. “We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse,” Trump said in another tweet. “Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!” he added.
Earlier, Trump offered his condolences to British Prime Minister Theresa May, the White House said. He also pledged “full cooperation and support of the United States Government in responding to the attack and bringing those responsible to justice.”
In a gruesome attack, 7 people were killed after three knife-wielding attackers in fake suicide attacked British capital, plowing a van into pedestrians on the iconic London Bridge and stabbing revellers in a nearby market.
