Trump calls London mayor a 'disaster' after spate of killings


US President Donald Trump has launched yet another attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan, calling him a "disaster" in response to violence in the city.

This comes after three men were killed and three others injured in less than 24 hours in London.

"LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP. Khan is a disaster - will only get worse!" Trump said on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Khan's spokesman said the mayor "is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet".

Trump’s feud with Khan dates back several years. The US leader had been critical of Khan's response to the London Bridge attack in 2017, and had called him a "stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London" shortly before landing in Stansted.
