What did he say?
London mayor Sadiq Khan has refused to comment on a “stupid and disgraceful” tweet by Donald Trump Jr on terrorist attacks.
The US President’s eldest son tweeted link to a news story that quoted Khan last year saying that acts of terrorism were “part and parcel of living in a big city.”

People on Twitter have called the tweet “disgraceful and stupid”.
“Look, I’m not going to respond to a Tweet from Donald Trump Jr. I’ve been doing far more important things over the last 24 hours,” Mr Khan told CNN on Thursday.
“What I do know is that the threat level in London and across the country is severe. That means an attack is highly likely.
“Terrorists hate the fact that, whether it’s London whether it’s New York, whether it’s Brussels… We have diverse communities living together peacefully.”
