Rep. Jim Himes, D-Conn., didn’t mince words Tuesday when he responded to President Trump’s provocative tweets following last weekend’s terror attack in London.
“What Donald Trump did in response to the British tragedy was, again, I think inappropriate for a toddler, much less the president of the United States,” Himes said on CNN’s “New Day.”

Trump drew widespread criticism with his freewheeling Twitter missives in the aftermath of the attack, which killed seven people. Among other things, Trump repeatedly chastised London Mayor Sadiq Khan for telling residents of his city that there was “no reason to be alarmed” by increased police presence. Trump took Khan’s comments out of context, implying that the mayor told Londoners not to be worried about the attack itself.
