Speaking Monday night at a fundraiser for Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings’s youth program, Hillary Clinton made pointed comments praising London Mayor Sadiq Khan.
She did not mention President Trump by name, but it was clear she was defending Khan in response to President Trump’s recent criticism of Khan’s response to the Islamic terror attacks that have occurred in Manchester and London.
Clinton stated, “It’s a time for steady, determined leadership, like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London.”
“This is a time for us to reach out to the world, to understand more about what is happening. Not just in our own country, but indeed across the globe,” she said. “This is not a time to lash out, to incite fear, or to use tragedy and terror for political gain.”
President Trump had tweeted Monday, “Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!”

Again, he tweeted on Sunday, “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!'”
