Donald Trump has attacked the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan once again on Twitter by calling him a national disgrace following futher violence in the capital.

He hit out at Khan after five separate attacks in London in which three men were killed in less than 24 hours.

Two teenagers were murdered within minutes of each other in different parts of the capital on Friday, while a man was stabbed to death on Saturday afternoon.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said it was absolutely awful the US president was using the tragedy of people being murdered to attack the mayor.

Retweeting a post about the killings, Trump said the capital needed a new mayor ASAP.

He tweeted: Khan is a disaster – will only get worse!

The original post by Katie Hopkins called the capital Stab-City and Khans Londonistan alongside two screenshots of BBC News articles detailing the violence.



She wrote: 20 hours in Stab-City UPDATE 2 stabbed to death 1 shot dead Three stabbed – but not dead. Wandsworth & Tower Hamlets This is Khans Londonistan.

Her use of the word Londonistan was branded racist in reference to British Muslim Khan, whose heritage is Parkistani, while Corbyn said Trump was helping Hopkins to promote hateful and divisive rhetoric.

Trump later returned to Twitter to call the mayor a national disgrace who is destroying the City of London.

Jeremy Corbyn tweeted: @SadiqKhan is rightly supporting the police to do their job while Katie Hopkins spreads hateful and divisive rhetoric.

They seek to divide at a time we need to come together.

His thoughts are with the victims families. He is not going to waste his time responding to this sort of tweet.
