>> lauren, thank you. in a fleury of tweets this morning president trump criticized london's mayor for saying there was no reason to be alarmed. the mayor made the comment while trying to reassure londoners about an increased presence they might see. the president tweeted at least seven dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and mayor of london says there is no reason to be alarmed. in the final tweet trump noted the attackers used a van to slam into pedestrians and then assaulted people with knives. he tweeted did you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? that's because they used knives and a truck. a spokesperson for london's mayor dismissed the tweets saying 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. nbc 10 has been covering these attacks since they started yesterday. stay with us for instant updates and new information with the nbc
