"We keep appeasing it", Donald Trump Jr. said Monday in Trump Tower.
Trump, in a series of tweets, lashed Khan's handling of the Saturday night terror attack, mocking the mayor for telling the public there was "no reason to be alarmed" over armed police on the streets.
British Prime Minister Theresa May, who is in the midst of a hard-fought election to be determined later this week, has been put in a hard position by Trump's cold-blooded rudeness and attempt to grandstand on the bodies of Saturday's victims.
Sadiq Khan did a video announcement to Londoners after the vicious attack on Saturday night by members of the radical Al Muhajiroun extremist organization.
"I think Donald Trump is wrong in what he said about Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the London Bridge attack", May said at a press conference on the campaign trail ahead of Thursday's election.
"Himes also warned that Trump is "damaging the national security of the United States". The London Mayor was especially vocal against the U.S. President's ban on travel from Muslim-majority countries to the U.S., even going as far as to call it a "shameful" and "cruel" policy.
Khan's spokesman said he was too busy to respond to Trump's "ill-informed" tweet.
Khan responded later to Trump: "I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the President of the United States of America in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for".
Half of Donald Trump's Twitter followers are bots
As a result, some are calling for the president's Twitter account to be cancelled, and Trump be sent to Twitter jail, so to speak. Here, he speaks during a joint news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the Chancellery in Berlin, May 30, 2017.
It was not until the Westminster attack in March of this year that Mr Khan again had friction with the Trump family.
Trump used the event to highlight the benefits of his controversial travel ban policy.
The White House has downplayed the clash of words between Trump and Khan.
Asked if Trump was attacking the mayor because he is Muslim, Sanders replied: "Not at all". "And I think to suggest something like that is utterly ridiculous".
Trump's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., defended his father.
As Khan said he had "better things to do" than respond, he was backed by American politicians, including NY mayor Bill De Blasio.
"And guess what, he's been proven right about it, every time".
"We're working with the Mayor of London and City Hall to ensure, for example, that the transport network is able to get back up and running so that people can go about their business. We're gonna hold fast and we're gonna keep calm and carry on.' Maybe we have to keep calm and actually do something".
"I'd rather he didn't come, but if he does, I'd like his vile Tweets juxtaposed against whatever he's been coaxed to read off an autocue", Rowling, celebrated for her Harry Potter books and a frequent critic of Trump, wrote on Twitter.
