"I invite all Londoners - and everyone visiting our city - to come together in solidarity to remember those who have lost their lives, to express sympathy with their families and loved ones and to show the world that we stand united in the face of those who seek to harm us and our way of life", Khan said. Khan, who belongs to the opposition Labour Party, is popular in London and his response to Saturday's killings has been widely praised as dignified.

Acosta said, "There are going to be folks who are going to ask the question was the president attacking the major of London because he is Muslim". Khan spoke those words in a television interview Sunday in the context of reassuring Londoners about an increased police presence they might see.

Trump challenged London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying there was "no reason to be alarmed".

Trump's tweet renewed his mischaracterization of Khan's statement to London residents following the attack that left seven people dead and dozens injured.

On Monday, a spokesman for Khan said: "The mayor is focused on dealing with Saturday's horrific and cowardly attack and working with the police, the emergency services and the Government to keep London safe".

While addressing a multi-cultural audience, Khan said London would never be "broken by terrorism" and that terrorism would be defeated. "You will not win".

"Our city is filled with great sorrow and anger tonight but also great resolve", he said.

"Your perverse, disgusting ideology has nothing to do with the true values of Islam".

The latest deadly terrorist attack on one of America's most important allies drew a fitting initial response from President Trump: "Whatever the United States can do to help out in London and the U.K., we will be there", he tweeted.

"Some people thrive on feud and division".

"I just haven't got time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump".

"I've been doing far more important things over the last 24 hours", he says. Trump wrote. MSM referred to mainstream media.

Asked what it would take for her to publicly criticize the US President, May suggested that she "was not afraid" to speak out when Trump "gets things wrong".

Trump said he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May to express America's "unwavering support" and offer US assistance as the British government works to protect its citizens and bring the guilty to justice.

May, the Conservative Party leader, was asked earlier on Monday about Trump's criticism of Khan."I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it is wrong to say anything else", she said.
