The row between Donald Trump and Sadiq Khan has escalated again after the US president called the London mayor “a disaster” in response to violence in the capital, where three men have been killed in separate attacks in less than 24 hours.

Retweeting a post by right-wing commentator Katie Hopkins about the killings, the president said the capital needed a new mayor “ASAP” and that Khan “will only get worse!”

Trump then followed his tweet up a few hours later with another attack on Khan: “He is a national disgrace who is destroying the City of London!”

The original post by Hopkins called the capital “Stab-City” and “Khan’s Londonistan” alongside two screenshots of BBC News articles detailing the violence.

3. Trump is a disaster!

These are our trusted allies, our friends and partners, yet Trump offers no words of solidarity and sympathy. He doesn't even toss out the cheap and worthless "thoughts and prayers" motto.

He jumps at the thrill of attacking someone out of petty revenge. What a sad little buffoon of a man.
