But Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn defended Mr Khan, saying: "Absolutely bad to see Donald Trump using the tragedy of people being murdered to attack the Mayor".

As a clinical psychologist working with young people in Tower Hamlets, east London, I see so much of their hope, potential and optimism extinguished by the grinding reality of lack of proper educational opportunities, lack of job prospects and genuine bewilderment about why some people have so much money while they, and their families, can not afford to eat.

On a trip to London in July past year, Trump accused Khan of doing "a very bad job on terrorism", linking immigration to a deadly wave of crime in London.
