Cyberbully-in-chief. Donald Trump’s Twitter storm against London’s mayor, Sadiq Khan, for his recent comments in the wake of a terror attack takes his words out of context and is highly insensitive, writes Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post. Khan intended to keep his citizens calm under an increased police presence. The US president continued his hate-inducing rhetoric that has been seen in the past, calling for a travel ban again.

Few have the courage to critically analyze Britain’s lax immigration policies that have allowed hostile individuals to pass its borders. Trump is right to criticize this mentality, highlighting security as a priority.
