  • Mayor of London Sadiq Khan arrives for a service of remembrance for the Grenfell tower fire at St. Helen's church in west London

Following this, the US President Donald Trump quote-tweeted her, adding his own comment labelling Khan as a "disaster" and saying "LONDON needs a new mayor".

In less than 24 hours, three people died and another three others injured after five attacks in London. "Khan is a disaster - will only get worse!" he wrote.

Hunt's comments came at a leadership hustings event Monday and followed a series of messages Tweeted by President Trump over the weekend as he lamented the surge of crime gripping London.

Two teenagers were killed within minutes of each other in different parts of the capital, whilst a man was stabbed to death hours later.

In doing so, the United States president retweeted the right-wing, anti-Islam campaigner Katie Hopkins as he told his 61 million followers that Mr Khan was a "national disgrace who is destroying the City of London".

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".

Earlier this month Mr Trump called Mr Khan a "stone-cold loser" after the Mayor compared the US President to 20th-century fascists and criticised the British Government for inviting him for a state visit.

There is no lost love between the American leader and Sadiq Khan - London's first Muslim 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.

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

The Met Police said last night: 'Bearing down on violent crime on the streets of London continues to be a top priority.' Ten arrests have been made after the murders in Tooting and Plumstead.

The deaths over the past few days take the total number of murders in London in 2019 to 56.
