Trump Kids Step Up To Defend Dad In Wake Of Latest Social Media Flop

President Donald Trump has been back at it again on social media, and he has unleashed one of his patented tweet-storms to let the world know how he feels. One of the topics sticking in his craw this time around is London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who Trump feels isn’t doing enough to ward off terror in the city. Trump’s remarks came in the aftermath of the latest terror attacks to rock the city, and many observers are questioning the wisdom and appropriateness of his remarks.

As ABC News shares, POTUS has insinuated that Khan is not taking the threat seriously enough, and as a result, the city is ripe for the picking when it comes to terrorism. Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., sat for an interview in the wake of the controversy to defend their father’s stance.

“We keep appeasing it. And we keep saying, 'Okay, it's gonna be great. We're gonna hold fast and we're gonna keep calm and carry on,’” Donald Jr. said. “Maybe we have to keep calm and actually do something.”

“You should be alarmed. Because this has become the new norm. And it's not right,” Eric added. “And we, as a society, especially as Americans, better do something about it.”

For Khan’s part, he has brushed aside Trump’s remarks, as he indicated that he had more important matters on his plate right about now.

“We aren’t going to allow anybody, whether it’s Donald Trump or anybody else, to divide our communities,” he said.

While it’s clear that the two leaders have different approaches to handling things, it’s also quite clear that something needs to be done in the UK, which has turned into a lightning rod for terrorism of late. That’s not Khan’s fault alone, but his focus on togetherness when there are clear signs of radicalization around him is a little worrisome.

In a perfect world, we would all come together, see past our differences and get along. Things don’t always work out that way, and there are plenty of people out there that would prefer to inflict harm on others to express their angst. A great deal of them appear to be in the UK at the moment, and that points to a need for even greater awareness than normal.

“Maybe rather than the mayor of London attacking, maybe he should do something about it,” Donald Jr. continued. “Maybe he should do something to fix the problem rather than just sit there and pretend there isn't one.”

That’s a fair point, but the other side of that coin says that your father shouldn’t be jumping on social media for a brain dump shortly after a terror attack. The merits of a president using social media are questionable at best to begin with, and he does nothing but arm critics and detractors with ammunition each time he hops on there.

Chances are that won’t be changing anytime soon, but perhaps the president can adopt some form of a filter to make himself appear more presidential while expressing his opinions and beliefs in short bursts.
