New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio hit back at President Donald Trump's criticism of the mayor of London Monday, saying the president's comments "make no sense."

De Blasio was responding to Trump's remark directed at London Mayor Sadiq Khan:

The comment came after the deadly terror attack on the streets of London Saturday.

Khan, who is Muslim, had this to say about the attack's aftermath in a BBC interview:

"Londoners will see an increased police presence [Sunday] and over the course of the next few days. No reason to be alarmed."

De Blasio said Trump twisted Khan's words and took them out of context.

"He is telling people that they can be assured that the security forces will be reinforced, will be present, will be visible. That's exactly what a leader is supposed to do," said de Blasio, according to Politico. "I don't understand why Donald Trump is trying to undermine a man who is trying to protect the people of London.

"It's something I say regularly, [NYPD] Commissioner [James] O'Neill says regularly, any good leader would say. Maybe Donald Trump doesn't have a lot of experience handling security situations, but it just makes no sense. It's not fair to Mayor Khan, it's not fair to the people of London."
