London mayor Sadiq Khan wants the British government to cancel a planned state visit by President Donald Trump—after Trump criticized Khan over Twitter.

Following a major terrorist attack in London over the weekend, Trump took to Twitter to slam Khan for downplaying the terrorist attack. Khan had assured Londoners that there was “no reason to be alarmed” after the attacks.

“At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” tweeted Trump.

Khan explained that he wasn’t referring to the attacks themselves—but, rather, explaining to the people of London that there was no reason to be alarmed because of increased police presence.

On Monday, Trump took an even more direct shot at Khan.

Trump tweeted: “Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his ‘no reason to be alarmed’ statement. [Mainstream media] is working hard to sell it!”

After the two tweets, Khan was livid—leading for him to call on the British government to cancel Trump’s upcoming state visit.

“I don’t think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the USA in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for,” said Khan, in an interview with Britain’s Channel 4 News on Monday night.

“When you have a special relationship it is no different from when you have got a close mate. You stand with them in times of adversity but you call them out when they are wrong. There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong.”
