Sadiq Khan golf jibe triggers yet another Donald Trump Twitter tantrum

H3 hurricane dorian eye over bahamas0

"He is a awful mayor who should stay out of our business!" posted Trump on Twitter.

Vice President Mike Pence attended the commemoration in place of the President.

"He's clearly busy dealing with a hurricane out on the golf course", Khan told Politico's London Playbook, a statement that apparently riled Trump, who branded him "a bad mayor".

In September 2017, almost eight months into Trump's presidency, Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest Atlantic basin hurricane ever recorded outside the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, affected at least nine USA states.

'The incompetent Mayor of London, Sadique [sic] Kahn [sic], was bothered that I played a very fast round of golf yesterday, ' Trump tweeted.

Speaking to Politico, Mr Khan said the President "is a guy who amplifies racist tweets; amplifies the tweets of fascists; says things that are deeply objectionable".

It's not the first time that Trump has insulted Khan and told him to focus on crime at home in London instead of events in the United States.

The president duly responded on Monday by attacking Khan as "incompetent" - misspelling the mayor's first and last names in the process.

The pair have been at one another's throats since 2016, when then-candidate Trump introduced that he would impose a complete ban on Muslim immigration, which Khan, a Muslim, known as "ignorant".

Trump tweeted the storm was headed to Alabama, only for his warnings to be batted down by the National Weather Service in Birmingham minutes later.

The president has also previously dubbed Mr Khan a "disaster" on Twitter and called him a "national disgrace who is destroying the city of London", as he criticised the mayor's record on crime in the capital.

"Donald Trump is just one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat", Khan wrote ahead of Trump's June visit.

The two men have traded insults before, with Mr Trump labelling Mr Khan a "stone cold loser" and mocking his height before his state visit to the United Kingdom in June.

In response, Mr Khan's office accused the President of "childish insults".
