Mark Townsend // US president refers to message about Met police twitter account, calling London mayor ‘incompetent’

Referring to a message from Hopkins that the Met’s Twitter account had been targeted by hackers on Friday night, in which she said officers had “lost control of London streets” and “lost control of their Twitter account too”, Trump tweeted: “With the incompetent mayor of London, you will never have safe streets!”

It is Trump’s latest move in an ongoing spat with Khan, during which he called the London mayor a “national disgrace” and “stone cold loser”, comments dismissed by the London mayor as childish.

Minutes before his latest jibe against Khan, Trump retweeted videos posted by Hopkins that supported the US president’s recent racist attacks on four US congresswomen.
