U.S. President Donald Trump once again criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan on Saturday, saying he is a "disaster" and will "only get worse" after three people were slain in the city in less than 20 hours. Trump retweeted a tweet by the right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins who called London "stab city" and said "this is Khan's Londonistan," a phrase used to describe the city's failure to tackle Muslim extremists.

Trump called Khan, a Muslim of Pakistani heritage, a "stone-cold loser" earlier this month after the mayor criticized the British government for inviting Trump for a state visit and compared him to 20th century fascists. Trump's feud with Khan dates back several years. Khan has criticised Trump's effort to ban travellers from Muslim countries.
