In the aftermath of the recent Islamic terrorist attacks in London, Donald Trump has come under fire for critical remarks that he made about the city's mayor. Doubling down, the president is continuing his attack on Sadiq Khan, while also hitting back at the media in the process.

Trump on Twitter

Following the Islamic terrorist attack at the London bridge last Saturday, world leaders spoke out to condemn what took place while offering the city a helping hand in their time of need. While that was the case for most nations, Donald Trump took a different route.

The morning after the attack, Trump sent out several tweets, one of which was highly critical of London Mayor Sadiq Khan over his response. "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor Of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!' Trump posted to his social media platforms. The quote in question appeared to be taken out of context, as Khan was trying to reassure those in the London area that law enforcement had the situation under control. Prime Minister Teresa May has come to the Khan's defense, saying the mayor as done a "good" job, while noting, "It's wrong to say anything else." The White House has continued to defend the president over his remarks, which he elaborated on further during a June 5 Twitter post.

Taking to Twitter once again on Monday morning was Donald Trump as the commander in chief expanded his criticism of Sadiq Khan.

"Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed' statement," Trump tweeted, before attacking the media by adding, "MSM is working hard to sell it!"

Twitter reacts

In response to Donald Trump's continued criticism of the mayor of London, social media users quickly piled on the former host of "The Apprentice." "You have nothing.

You're not a leader. You're barely an adult. As your presidency falls apart, you resort to picking fights with real leaders," comedy writer Jon Bershad tweeted out.

"You mean how his statement was to calm down the people who elected him when they see increased police or your cherry picked quote?" Tony Posnanski rhetorically asked, while adding, "His statement actually sells it. Like really sells it." "And you're our pathetic excuse of a president, unfortunately," podcast host David Quinones tweeted out.

"Well at least he didn't follow that statement up by playing his 23rd round of golf this year, you lazy cretin," talk show host Jonathan Wier wrote on his Twitter account. The backlash continued as the war of worlds between Donald Trump and his critics doesn't look to be slowing down at any point in the near future.
