London Mayor Sadiq Khan accused President Donald Trump of behaving like a 12-year-old for criticizing him on the day of a terrorist attack in the British capital in June, according to an interview in The New Yorker.

Following the attack, in which eight people were murdered, Khan urged Londoners not to be alarmed by the increased presence of security forces on the streets that were there to protect them.

Trump then sent out a tweet in the middle of the crisis in which he mocked Khan.

Even after a spokesperson for Khan explained that Trump had taken the mayor's words out of context, Trump tweeted more criticism.

Khan said Trump's responses were disappointing and surprising, especially coming from Great Britain's strongest ally, because "The basic rule amongst politicians and amongst leaders is a sense of solidarity — it is almost like our version of NATO Article 5."

When The New Yorker asked why he thought Trump was upset at him, Khan said, "The short answer is I don't know, but I can understand if we were both aged 12-years-old."

The London mayor later urged that Trump's proposed trip to the UK should be canceled, the Independent reported.

During the presidential campaign, Khan called Trump a "buffoon" and said he hoped he would lose after the real estate mogul first suggested a ban on immigration from Muslim countries.

Trump shot back at the time, saying he would remember what Khan said and called them "very rude statements."
