Timeline: How the Trump-Khan relationship grew so heated

This had been followed by Mr Trump firing off an incendiary barrage of tweets attacking Mr Khan for his plea for calm - and promoting his contentious travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries.

Trump has used the policy, stalled now in USA courts, as an example of the sort of toughness that he says Khan refuses to show amid terrorism attacks that are riling the United Kingdom.

In a move that appeared to mischaracterize Khan's remarks, Trump accused Khan, the first Muslim mayor of London, for his remarks on BBC on twitter.

Legal challenges to the executive order contend that it amounts to an unconstitutional religious test, something borne from Trump's campaign when he repeatedly called for a Muslim ban.

"America sends our thoughts and prayers and our deepest sympathies to the victims of this evil slaughter and we renew our resolve, stronger than ever before, to protect the United States and its allies from a vile enemy that has waged war on innocent life, and it's gone on too long", Trump said.

"Trump's ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe", Kahn wrote in May 2016.

In the article, Khan was reported as saying that being prepared for terror attacks was "part and parcel" of living in a major city.

"It is a reality I'm afraid that London, New York, other major cities around the world have got to be prepared for these sorts of things", he said.

She told Newsnight: "When London was under attack, Trump made a decision to attack London".

Trump mocked Khan's comment on Sunday, suggesting in a tweet that the mayor was downplaying the attacks.

The next day, Khan tells Amanpour that he isn't going to reply to the President's son.

"Honestly, I've got better and more important things to focus on".

Three jihadis drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night before running into the bustling Borough Market area where they slit people's throats and stabbed them indiscriminately.

Khan says that London residents should expect to see an intensified police presence in the wake of the attacks. "There's no reason to be alarmed".

British Prime Minister Theresa May, who has tried to foster a productive relationship with Trump, came to Khan's defense Monday, telling journalists that the mayor was "doing a good job, and it's wrong to say anything else".

Trump again hammers Khan, saying the mainstream media is abetting Khan's timidity.

Trump was criticized for the tweet, but Monday morning he dived right back into the controversy: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!"Trump tweeted".

Khan was asked if he thought Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom should be called off.

London mayor Sadiq Khan was more explicit about the proposed visit, telling Channel 4 on Monday night: "I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the U.S. in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for".

"You demean your office by misquoting and smearing the Mayor of a city that has just been attacked and is also the capital of your close ally".
