Here's what's happening in the political world today:

London mayor has "more important things to do" than monitor Trump tweets 

-- London is a city on edge following an eight-minute terrorist rampage killed seven people and injured 48 more yesterday. This morning, police announced the arrest of 12 people in east London. 

Moments after word of the attack reached the States, U.S. president Donald Trump took to Twitter to comment.

Trump began by retweeting Drudge Report and eventually sent six total tweets that included a message of support for London and the U.K, a plea for his travel ban and a dig at London mayor Sadiq Khan for advising Londoners to remain calm. 

Khan's office responded with the following quote:

The Mayor is busy working with the police, emergency services, and the government to coordinate the response to this horrific and cowardly terrorist attack and provide leadership and reassurance to Londoners and visitors to our city. He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump’s ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police – including armed officers – on the streets.
