Instead of stoking fear, he should stoke joy and happiness and urge the London mayor to make sure supply of hal'a'a'l meat is not interrupted.

Since you have no interest in engaging with the substance of the article, other than to throw rhetorical bombs, here are the substantive parts of the article cut and pasted for the benefit of those who won't bother to click the link.

A traditional president would have reacted carefully to the London Bridge terrorist attack by instilling calm, being judicious about facts and appealing to the country’s better angels.


But Donald Trump is no traditional president. He reacted impulsively to Saturday night’s carnage by stoking panic and fear, being indiscreet with details of the event and capitalizing on it to advocate for one of his more polarizing policies and to advance a personal feud.

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’ ” Trump tweeted.

Trump took Khan’s quote out of context. The mayor had urged Londoners, in a BBC interview that was replayed, not to be “alarmed” by an increased police presence in the city. He said that after condemning the “deliberate and cowardly attack” as “barbaric.”

A Khan representative swatted away Trump’s taunt, saying in a statement that the mayor “has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police — including armed officers — on the streets.”

The London police responses are being lauded everywhere as quick, professional, and thorough.

Those are qualities that are the opposite of the Orange Chimp's customary folderol.

Let me remind the chimp's acolytes that he completely got the Philippines attack wrong by jumping the gun.

There is no substance in that so called article, which does a good job of what it accuses Trump of doing - blowing things out of proportion. And what is a traditional President? Trump got elected in a traditional manner.

Lol!
He said there was no reason to be alarmed by the increased police presence over the next few days, you hare-brained miscreant. Sit down. https://t.co/dWbMlpqVYO

If you're gearing up to write a tweet about how Britain ‘needs’ hundreds of thousands of guns – thanks for your concern, but jog on

Dear NRA nuts telling us guns will help us: more Americans die from firearms every week than last 3 London terror attacks combined.

They had to use knives and a truck because they couldn't get hold of guns. Imagine the carnage if they had & had returned police fire. https://t.co/1KiDnZzOUk

Gun opponents taking advantage of this tragedy to push their anti-gun agenda = good. 
Donald making comments to push his agenda = bad.
Different standards for different people.

Orange Chimp gets no respect from anyone other than his hardcore followers. Certainly precious few outside the U.S.

Hypocrites with double standards get no respect anywhere in the world - except among their own.

The Orange is not a hypocrite. At least it's not his top fault among many. He's just a moronic blowhard is all.

This morning's blowharding:
http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/336319-trump-i-am-calling-it-a-travel-ban

Undermining the departmrnts and agencies of his own government. It's what he does best. Nobody I know in any executive capacity undermines their workers like the orange chimp.

If the intent is stop Islamic terror, why aren't Pakistan and Saudi Arabia on the list? Those of us who see through this vapid travel ban sound like broken records but really why aren't the countries that supplied the majority of 9/11 terrorists and the one that sheltered Bin Laden not on the list?

Il Douche said in a recent tweet that extreme vetting is already in place. He said travel ban was a temporary measure while he figures out how to do extreme vetting. Even in the campaign he said the ban should be until we figure out "what the hell is going on." He has been in power for four months, he better know what the hell is going on. Yet, he also asks for the Supreme Court to lift the injunction on the travel ban.

The best thing about this is that the courts will use his latest tweet to throw out the travel ban.

May not be the best choice of words, but here is what followed that statement:
The Mayor of London revealed he had a “sleepless night” after the recent bombing in New York, and said major cities around the world “have got to be prepared for these sorts of things” to happen when people least expect them.

That means being vigilant, having a police force that is in touch with communities, it means the security services being ready, but it also means exchanging ideas and best practice”, Mr Khan told the Evening Standard shortly before a meeting with New York mayor Bill de Blasi

“Nothing is more important to me than keeping Londoners safe,” Mr Khan said at the time. “I want to be reassured that every single agency and individual involved in protecting our city has the resources and expertise they need to respond in the event that London is attacked.

“The terrorists are evolving their tactics and we have got to evolve our response to them all the time. I am afraid the consequences of a terror attack are very very scary. They want to kill. They want to maim and terrify. It is my job to try to make sure that we are as safe as we can be.”

He sounds like a Mayor who wants his city to be well prepared in case of a terrorist attack. American politicians say all the time it's not a case of if we'll be attacked, but when. What he said is very much the same thing in different words.
