The acting U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom issued words of praise for London Mayor Sadiq Khan after President Donald Trumped slammed the mayor for comments he made to try to calm Londoners after Saturday's terror attack, The Hill reported Sunday.

Early Sunday, Trump said on Twitter, "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

But, later Sunday, Ambassador Lewis Lukens, tweeted, "I commend the strong leadership of the ‪@MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack."

Lukens also issued a tweet that called the response by emergency services, law enforcement, London officials and citizens "extraordinary."

Following the attack, Khan said in a statement to the BBC that London was safe, but to expect to see an increase in police presence.

"Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed," he said.

"I'm reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world, if not the safest global city in the world. But, we always evolve and review ways to make sure that we remain as safe as we possibly can," he added.
