On the heels of yet another terror attack in the UK, the first Muslim to ever be elected as the mayor of London published a short one-minute video statement concerning the terror attacks that killed seven and injured nearly 50 people.
President Trump poked at the statements made by London mayor, Sadiq Khan on Sunday via Twitter. You can see the tweet by clicking here.
Statement from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan:
“There are no words to describe the grief and anger that our city is feeling this morning. Tragically, six people have been killed in this sickening attack, and more than 40 injured, some of them critically.
I am appalled and furious that these twisted and cowardly terrorists deliberately targeted innocent Londoners and visitors to our city who were just enjoying their Saturday night. I condemn these terrorists in the strongest possible terms. They are barbaric cowards and there is absolutely no justification for their evil and unforgivable actions.
My thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims and everyone caught up in this horrific attack. I’d like to thank our emergency services who bravely tackled the terrorists and helped the injured. I’ve been in close contact with the Met Police Commissioner and senior officers throughout the night and will be attending the government’s COBRA security meeting.
I’d urge all Londoners to remain calm and vigilant today and over the days ahead. We are all shocked and angry today but this is our city – we will never let these cowards win and we will never be cowed by terrorism.”
