In the wake of the latest apparent Islamist terror attack in London that left seven victims dead and scores injured, President Donald Trump on Twitter this morning is blasting political correctness, gun control and the response of London’s mayor.

London Bridge terror attacks: What we know

“We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don’t get smart it will only get worse,” the president tweeted early this morning.

Trump then took aim at London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who issued a statement condemning the attack and urging people in London to “remain calm and vigilant.”

“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 also used the incident to weigh in on the domestic debate over gun control, noting that the London attackers used vans and knives to kill their victims.

“Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That’s because they used knives and a truck!” Trump tweeted.
