Unapologetic Donald Trump Jr. puts London’s Muslim Mayor in hot seat after terror attack

Donald Trump Jr. called out London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the city’s first Muslim mayor, for accepting terrorism as “part and parcel” of living in a big city.

In the aftermath of an attack Wednesday in London by an Islamic terrorist that left at least five dead, including the assailant, and 40 injured, President Donald Trump’s son took to Twitter to draw attention to previous remarks from Khan.

“You have to be kidding me?!: Terror attacks are part of living in big city, says London Mayor Sadiq Khan,” he tweeted.

Trump Jr. linked to a September article in The Independent of Khan commenting on a bombing in New York City.

Playing a game of semantics, the liberal media was quick to defend Mayor Khan, claiming that Trump Jr, “mischaracterized” what was said.

In calling on Londoners to be vigilant, Khan said at the time that the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city,” and added that major cities around the world “have got to be prepared for these sorts of things.”

Khan has been highly critical of President Trump, as seen in a May 2016 tweet:

The mayor also said at the time that “Trump and those around him think that Western liberal values are incompatible with mainstream Islam.”

When asked Wednesday to respond to Trump Jr.’s “kneejerk tweet,” as characterized by CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Khan passed.

“I’m not going to respond to a tweet from Donald Trump Jr.,” he said. “I’ve been doing more important things over the past 24 hours.”

Khan also repeated the familiar liberal narrative of the Islamic extremist being a lone wolf.

“This was an attack from a lone terrorist trying to destroy our way of life and divide our communities,” he told Amanpour.

There was plenty of backlash to Khan’s previous remarks on Twitter including at least one tweet that was retweeted by Ann Coulter:
