Following the recent attacks in London, the Mayor of London made some remarks that are leaving many scratching their heads…
Fox News reported:
Following the latest terror attack, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said he is still “reassured” that the British capital is “one of the safest cities in the world.”
“I’m reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world – if not the safest global city in the world,” Khan said following the London Bridge attack.
Patti Ann Browne pointed out that Great Britain has suffered three major terrorist attacks in the last few months.
Earlier, President Trump blasted Khan for saying there is “no reason to be alarmed” in the aftermath of the latest attack.

A Khan spokeswoman told Sky News that Trump took the mayor out of context.
“His remarks urge[d] Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police – including armed officers – on the streets,” she said.
British police often carry nightsticks, but few are armed with guns on regular patrol.
The spokeswoman said the Labour Party member has more pressing issues to deal with than “ill-informed” tweets from the American president.
