The mayor of London makes a perfectly logical statement and our President attacks him in a perfectly stupid manner on Twitter. Probably still butthurt after the mayor expressed his dislike of Trump's view of muslims during the campaign.

It has to sting just a little when the mayor of a city tells the press that he has better things to do than respond to the ill-informed tweets of the President.

I guess it is fairly na?ve to think a 70 year old man is capable of growing up, but I really hoped that he would. Hell, I still hope that he does.

These types of things are not a confidence boost.

    The Mayor of London? You mean the Muslim that said recently that the people need to "get used" the attacks?

    Is that the idiot that made a "perfectly logical statement"?

    Trumpy needs to do a little logical thinking before he bashes. I think a more positive message would have made him and his office look much more mature.

    The statement was that the people of London should not become alarmed by the increased armed police presence in the city following the attacks at the bridge.

    The mayor of London has made a number of questionable statements, and should be challenged by his constituents and the British government when he does. This type of crap is beneath the office of the Presidency even if Trump didn't misquote the man.

    Trump
    was never a politician so he has for his life spoke his mind is my guess and use to being top dog of his empire so this is totally out of the norm being president
    I think he should have some one filter his comments but I do not think its going to happen
    in the mean time the left is gaining ground to impeach him and just having more fuel to the fire
    I would be surprised if he just wakes up one day and says screw this I out of here

    I do think in his heart and mind he wants to help America

    Alpine is probably a lost cause, but you may not be.

    The actual quote from the mayor is:

    I?m not going to speculate as to how the police in New York should react. What I do know is part and parcel of living in a great global city is you gotta be prepared for these things, you gotta be vigilant, you gotta support the police doing an incredibly hard job, you gotta support the security services. And I think speculating, when you don?t know the facts, is unwise.

    He has said silly things like Trump's rhetoric is giving a boost to isis, etc. but to jump on the (I assume) deliberate twisting of his words in these instances makes no sense.

    It doesn't make sense coming from us, and it makes even less sense coming from the Donalds Trump.

    England is probably a lost cause and I doubt they will ever recover. The #12 most popular name for baby boy in England is Muhammad and #29 is Mohammed(taken from the British Office of National Statistics). And now they have a Muslim mayor. There's plenty of YouTube videos on how the Muslims in England interact with non Muslims and it's not good. Trump is correct that we better get a handle on it and I do agree with him that Europe's political correctness will be disastrous. Unfortunately we have so many of these kooks already here it's a matter of time before we get hit again. Hopefully they encounter some Americans who are carrying and have the mindset to put the scumbags in the dirt.

    Khan is a supporter of Sharia law, he's a terrorist sympathizer and the libtards in London will never vote him out because of their PC mentality.

    I agree with your first statement, Dads3040. I would also would suggest our President would have been better served by insisting that the vetting process review and implementation were on track within his stated 90 - 120 days rather than wasting his time tweeting and fighting the suspension of his travel ban through the courts.

    Khan's past is no more important in this little tit-for-tat than is Trump's. In this instance, Trump behaved like a child. I had hoped for better by this time.

    Khan's past is no more important in this little tit-for-tat than is Trump's. In this instance, Trump behaved like a child. I had hoped for better by this time.





    Your focus on improving the vetting process would be more operative, if it weren't for the pesky fact that the authority to implement that enhanced process emanates from the same 8 US 1182 statutes that the 9th Circus and other courts say Trump cannot use because he is a poop. If you care to opine that any effort by Trump to restrict immigration and travel by process rather than moratorium would garner a different reception from the left and the courts, you are free to do so. I am not near that hopeful. Since the opinion from the 9th managed to wander aimlessly in Leftist Legal Lala Land without ever even mentioning 8 US 1182, I have a sneaking suspicion that absent a favorable ruling from the SCOTUS, or Congress growing a spine, any new process will meet the same fate as the moratorium. And most in the country will be as oblivious to the impact of that as they have to much of what has gone on.

    Also complicating any effort to revise the vetting process is a little known and less discussed problem. After Hillary lost, Obama and his minions spent months changing positions that had been political appointees subject to immediate pink slips, to civil service status. Trump is surrounded by hostile staff, management, and all the opposition and mayhem they can create. Add in the slow walkign of his appointees that has been going on, and a serious problem related to the 'peaceful tansition of power' lurks about. A perfect illustration is 'Acting' Ambassador to the UK we heard praising Sadiq Khan. Lukens was appointed by CJ 3 days before his term ended. And Trump's appointee to be an ambassador is still languishing, waiting for the Senate to get around to it. If they can't manage to deal with a 'Who gives a F' position like ambassador to the UK, one wonders what they are doing with more important positions.

    It is little discussed, because people are willing to be distracted from what the left hand is doing by a press that tells them the right hand must be watched. Especially when the right hand does something as earth-shatteringly terrible as tweet something objectionable. I watch it here in GB constantly. In the rest of the country it is even worse.

    Finally, if you think the political leanings and affiliations of the mayor of one of the world's major cities and what that means to the overall extent of the problem we face aren't relevant because they are somehow in the 'past', I will leave you to your opinion. Anything more I might say wouldn't likely be helpful.
