On Sunday, President Trump continued to express his thoughts regarding the London attacks, especially on security. Trump brought up the fact that Mayor Sadiq Khan had said there is ‘no reason to be alarmed’ earlier during an interview, which Trump clearly disagreed with, along with many other leaders and civilians throughout the world.

However, Prime Minister Theresa May also spoke on their counterterrorism strategies being reevaluated, reports the New York Times. May stated, “Everybody needs to go about their lives as they normally would. Our society should continue to function in accordance with our values. But when it comes to taking on extremism and terrorism, things need to change,” leaving her thoughts on the recent attacks similar to those of President Trump.

Where do you stand on this? Please continue to pray for the victims involved in recent terrorist attacks. Thank you!
