Donald Trump’s been on Twitter again saying London mayor Sadiq Khan – wonder what it is about him that Trump dislikes so much? – is a “disaster” because of violent crime rates in London.
And he retweeted Katie Hopkins to do it.

What a shame it’s probably too complicated for the so-called president to understand.

And a few other very good points people made in response.
You are not only far more likely to be murdered in DC than London, you are also far more likely to be murdered *specifically with a knife* in DC than in London. America’s whole view of Europe is warped.

London is still very much safer than the average USA high school.

If only we could figure out some reason Trump would try to pick a public fight with London’s mayor 🤔
