The latter was left to President Trump, who would appear to be doing his best to ruin USA relations with its closest ally - if any calculation can be imputed to his reckless and irresponsible tweets.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan speaks to the media as he joined London Ambulance workers in observing a minute's silence at the London Ambulance Service headquarters at Waterloo, central London, in honour of the London Bridge terror at.
Trump accused Khan - London's first Muslim mayor - of offering a "pathetic excuse" for comments that the United States president earlier misconstrued about policing in response to Saturday's attack, which left seven people dead. "All day, every day", Trump Jr. said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" broadcast on Tuesday.
Earlier, police identified two of the three attackers who were shot dead by armed officers on Saturday night as they rampaged through Borough Market stabbing passersby.

President Donald Trump's sons Eric Trump, left, and Donald Trump Jr., executive vice presidents of The Trump Organization, chat with guests during an event Monday, June 5, 2017, in NY. They drew an implicit rebuke by the acting US ambassador to the United Kingdom, who praised Khan's "strong leadership" on Twitter.
"I just haven't had the time to respond to tweets from Donald Trump", said Khan. "A slap in the face to Muslim Americans and others, and this in many ways may actually incite more incidents". They love Britain, they want to come here to study, to be a tourist, to start up a business, to work, to learn. May also called on citizens to "go about their lives as they normally would" while stressing the need for better measures to combat the "evil ideology of Islamist extremism".
Khan's original quote continued: "I'm reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world, if not the safest global city, but we always evolve and review to make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be".
