While leaders around the world condemned the horrific London terror attacks and offered their unconditional support to the UK, Donald Trump had a very different message; in effect, to “be afraid.”

This, of course, comes as no surprise for someone who campaigned and won on a platform of fear mongering. However, while Trump is busy assailing our allies in turmoil, Sadiq Khan just gave him a lesson on what it means to be a leader.

In a typical move, Trump has once again mischaracterized an otherwise wholly appropriate comment by London’s mayor and exploited it to fit his own hateful agenda. Immediately following the attacks in London, our President’s initial response was to promote his own unconstitutional travel ban.

Of course, had he tried, Trump wouldn’t have had to look far to see how real leaders should respond to a tragedy like this.

Trump’s tweet comes on the heels of his request that the Supreme Court reconsider his travel ban, which has already been struck down twice as unconstitutional. In Trump’s latest unsuccessful appeal of the ban, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals said that the executive order “speaks with vague words of national security, but in context drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination.”

While Trump continues to shamelessly promote his own self-serving agenda, alienate our closest allies, and humiliate the United States, Americans have no choice but to look abroad for true leadership.

What is your reaction about this?
