Sadiq Khan says London is 'the safest global city in the world'

It takes two to tango, I'm not tangoing with this guy. I have better things to do.

Sadiq Khan on his feud with Trump

This morning the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan joined us to address the issue of whether Britain has enough police officers on the streets after Saturday's tragic terrorist attack.

"For the past 13 months I've been campaigning for more support for the Met Police service," he told Piers and Susanna. "We've lost over the last seven years six hundred million pounds from the Met Police budget."

As London's first ever Muslim mayor he was also asked by Piers to address the fact there are 400 Jihadis currently in the city and what he is doing to try and stop them from committing more atrocities. "I can't follow 400 people", he said before blaming budget cuts to the police services.

Addressing how everyone has a responsibility to report any signs of radicalisation in young people, Khan said: "All of us have a role to play".

Khan also said he won't be engaging in Trump's public criticisms of him on Twitter, maintaining he's not at 'war' with the US President and stressing he appreciates the importance of the UK's relationship with America.

"It takes two to tango, I'm not tangoing with this guy, I have better things to do."
