In this digital age, it becomes natural to people to immediately react to news stories especially to tragic or political ones. This was evidently shown in last Wednesday’s deadly attack in London.

Trump Jr. reacts

Rote messages, thoughts, and prayers spread out to different social media platforms and this includes Donald Trump Jr.’s not so good comment to London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

As the presidential son, it is his duty to support his father’s every agenda but last Wednesday it seems that he took a quick break from all that jazz. He reacted and posted a not so good comment shortly after the deadly attack on the British Parliament site that aims at the honorable mayor and said, “You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan.”

Together with his tweet, the president’s oldest child cited a link that directs to an Independent news article, a British newspaper.

It was published last September with a very catchy headline “London Mayor says terror attacks ‘part and parcel’ of living in a major city.”

That particular news article states Mayor Khan’s reaction to the bombing in Chelsea, New York City. Being well-prepared to terror attacks had to become part of the major city's daily dose. However, when the deadly attack happened last Wednesday, this message had a new meaning.

On Westminster Bridge, the suspect drove his car through pedestrians that resulted in dozens of injured innocent people. Not only that, the suspect ran and digs a knife to the civilians that killed three members of the public. He stabbed an unarmed cop, known to be PC Keith Palmer, to death before he was fatally gunned down by the police.

The said terror attack was indeed horrifying. It was claimed by ISIS released through its news agency Amaq.

Khan takes action

Sadiq Khan immediately released a statement after the incident with his deepest condolences to families of the victims. He also paid tribute to the fallen police officer who intended to restrain the suspect from the knife attack.

The mayor confidently reassures that their city is still to be the safest place in the world. He added that Londoners will never be intimidated by any terror attacks. In spite of the mayor’s safekeeping speech, the Parliament went on quarantine and block off a huge border to different iconic places like Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, and Big Ben.

Khan was the first Muslim leader also first ethnic-minority mayor to serve the capital of one of the major Western countries. He was the Member of the Parliament for Toothing, South London from 2005 to 2016.
