Would-Be Prime Minister Hunt Supports President Trump's Attack on London's Mayor Khan

Hunt, who pleaded last week for journalists to stop accidentally replacing the letter "H" with the letter "C" when pronouncing his name, has backed Donald Trump's latest attack on London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

"LONDON needs a new mayor ASAP", Trump posted.

The majority of the other Tory leader wannabes now vying for the honor of losing to Boris Johnson in the race for Downing Street were critical of Trump's online backing for Hopkins. "Khan is a disaster - will only get worse!"

A spokesman for Mr Khan said he was not going to waste time responding to Mr Trump's tweet.

On Saturday afternoon, a man in his thirties was stabbed to death at Tower Hamlets in east London, the news broadcaster also reported.

The US President added that Mr Khan should instead be focussed on crime in London, and called him a "stone cold loser".

Trump later returned to the social media platform, writing: "He [Mr Khan] is a national disgrace who is destroying the City of London!"

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn attacked the US President's latest outburst, saying it was "absolutely very bad to see Donald Trump using the tragedy of people being murdered to attack the Mayor".

He said Mr Khan was "rightly supporting the police to do their job while Katie Hopkins spreads hateful and divisive rhetoric".

The London Mayor had been critical of the Presidents' red carpet visit, saying it was wrong to give Mr Trump a state visit.

Now his arguments with the London Mayor Sadiq Khan are making headlines.

"They have my support to make sure we learn lessons from each other and that we work together to grapple the issue of violent crime taking place in many cities across the Western world".

Emergency services were called to Deeside Road in Wandsworth at 4.42pm on Friday afternoon where the 18-year-old victim was found stabbed and died at the scene.

The London mayor has rallied against the president's Muslim travel ban and immigration policies that "forcefully separates young children from their parents at the border".

Khan, meanwhile, criticised the United Kingdom for rolling out the "red carpet" for Trump and said that "there are many, many racists who think he's (Trump) their poster boy".

Another three men were slashed in a separate knife attack at about 3am on Saturday.

The deaths take the total number of murders in London in 2019 to 56.
