At Monday's White House press briefing, CNN's Jim Acosta questioned deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders about President Trump's tweets "attacking" London Mayor Sadiq Khan following the June 3rd terror attack.
"Let me ask you a follow-up on the -- what John was asking about with respect to the mayor of London. There are going to be folks who are going to ask the question, 'Was the president attacking the mayor of London because he's Muslim?" Acosta asked.
"Not at all," Huckabee Sanders responded. "And I think to suggest something like that is utterly ridiculous."
The tweets in question:
At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 4, 2017
Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement. MSM is working hard to sell it!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 5, 2017
