Donald Trump Jr. called a ‘disgrace’ for slamming London mayor


Donald Trump Jr. is under fire for tweeting hours after Wednesday’s London assault a remark from London Mayor Sadiq Khan from a month back that dread assaults had moved toward becoming “part and parcel” of life in a worldwide city.

Trump Jr. tweeted : “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.” The tweet included a link to a Sept. 22 story from Britain’s Independent newspaper that includes the quote from Khan asking Londoners to be vigilant following a bombing in New York City. Khan was quoted the day after three bombs exploded in N.Y. and nearby towns, wounding 29 people.

Wes Streeting, a member of Parliament, was among people in Britain who responded to the tweet with criticism. He called Trump Jr. “a disgrace” and accused him of using a terror attack for “political gain.”

“I’m not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I’ve been doing far more important things over the past 24 hours,” Khan told CNN when asked about Trump Jr. on Thursday.

“Terrorists hate the fact” that cities including London, New York and Paris have “diverse communities living together peacefully,” Khan added.
