"MSM [mainstream media] working hard to sell it!" In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Khan said there was "no cause for alarm" when referring to a visible increase in police activity on the streets of London.

Simon admitted he feared a similar attack on America would, under President Trump, result in the end of civil liberties. Police on Monday identified two of the three London attackers as Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane, after Britain's third terror assault in less than three months, as Prime Minister Theresa May came under mounting pressure over security just days ahead of elections. And I think to suggest something like that is utterly ridiculous."Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., defended his father."Every time he puts something out there he gets criticized by the media".

Khan, the first Muslim mayor of a major western capital, said the Islamist extremists who targeted civilians in bars and restaurants were despicable and the city would be resilient in the face of the attack.

The US president then dismissed criticism that he had taken Khan's remarks out of context, accusing Khan of coming up with a "pathetic excuse" to defend himself.

"My message to Londoners and visitors to our great city is to be calm and vigilant today", he said.

The "special relationship" with Britain became the latest casualty of that hardline stance Monday.

We've been working with Sadiq Khan.

Mr Khan has called for the US President's planned state visit to the United Kingdom to be scrapped, but Mrs May said Mr Trump's controversial trip would go ahead.

Seeded Angelique Kerber knocked out of French Open
Angelique Kerber became the first women's top seed in the Open era to lose in the opening round of the French Open on Sunday. Their match was suspended because of darkness on Tuesday with the 12th-seeded Frenchman trailing 7-5, 6-4, 6-7 (6), 5-4.

When asked if Mr Trump was wrong about his assessment of the mayor, the prime minister said Mr Khan was doing a good job and it was wrong to say anything else.

"One of the things that concerns me about the president s tweets this morning were he in effect is calling for a Muslim travel ban again, even though the courts have continued to turn that down", Senator Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate intelligence committee, said on television.

But the mayor actually said the public didn't need to be anxious about the increased police presence in the city.

After Saturday's attacks in the London Bridge area that claimed seven lives, for example, Trump panned the mayor for telling the public there was "no reason to be alarmed" by the atrocity.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that "picking a fight with the mayor of London" was not the president's intent, and that instead Trump was simply trying to argue that "we have to be more committed to national security".

He said the latest version of the proposed ban on travellers from six Muslim-majority countries entering the United States was "watered down". In a speech on Monday, he asked: "Do we want a country that will say to Donald Trump, "You are wrong"?"

Khan tells CNN's Christiane Amanpour that Trump's views of Islam "are ignorant".

The Trump administration last week formally asked the Supreme Court, the highest court in the US, to allow the ban to take effect, arguing that restricting immigration by refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen is necessary to protect USA national security.
