President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter to rail against politically correct politicians and took aim at the controversial London mayor Sadiq Khan. The mayor, who was elected last year and became first Muslim to head a major Western capital, has taken heat for his lax response to terrorism.

Following the latest attacks, he downplayed the danger again and argued that London was one of the safest cities in the world. In reality, at least 48 people were injured in the attack, which is the third to hit Britain in less than three months.

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse,” President Trump tweeted.

the attacks come days ahead of a snap parliamentary election on Thursday, less than two weeks after the Manchester bombing at an Ariana Grande concert that killed 22 and just after Great Britain lowered its official terror threat from “critical.” Roughly two months ago, another Islamic terror attack shook the U.K. Parliament.

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!'” he added.
