Following Saturday’s horrific terror attack in London, London Mayor Sadiq Khan issued one of the weakest responses ever and took the opportunity to get into a fight with President Donald Trump.
Rather than admit there is a problem, Khan decided to attack Trump after he pointed out that terrorism is rampant in the West and a travel ban is required to stop it.
Appearing on “Good Morning Britain,” Khan got ripped to shreds by Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan on Tuesday.
At one point, Morgan asked Khan one simple question.
“Where are the potential terrorists in England?” Morgan asked.
Khan had no idea how to respond, but later admitted that half of the 400 known jihadists are living in London.
“Why can’t you instruct the police, why can’t you call (Metropolitan Police Chief) Cressida Dick right now, and say every one of those people that’s come back from a war zone, who’s in London, I want them followed?” Morgan asked Khan.
“If the Met Police is being shrunk and reduced, they’ve got to prioritize and use their resources in a sensible, savvy way,” Khan said.
Khan’s answer angered Morgan, prompting him to push harder.
“What could be a bigger priority than people coming back from a Syrian battlefield with intent to harm British citizens? Why is it not the number one priority?” he demanded.
“Why are these people just allowed to come back in the first place, and then the London mayor doesn’t appear to have a clue where any of them are? I mean, no disrespect to you, but where are they?” he continued.
“That’s one of the questions that obviously the police services are –,” he said before Morgan cut him off.
“But you’re the mayor! Sadiq, you’re the mayor of London,” Morgan exclaimed.

Trump later called Khan out for his weak response.
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!
