Background:

Seven people were killed and dozens more were injured in a devastating terrorist attack in London on Saturday. The terrorists used a vehicle to plow through crowds of people on London Bridge and used knives to viciously attack innocents in Borough Market.

Three terrorist suspects were killed by police during all the chaos, and they were found to be wearing fake suicide vests. 50 rounds were fired during all the shooting, and miraculously, only one bystander was hit by the bullets.

In a statement, London Mayor Sadiq Khan urged the citizens of London to remain calm, and said that there was going to be an increase of police on the streets, and that they should not be afraid of the increased security.

“There's no reason to be alarmed. One of the things the police and all of us need to do is ensure that we're as safe as we possibly can be,” he said.

“I'm reassured that we are one of the safest global cities in the world, if not the safest global city, but we always evolve and review to make sure we're as safe as we possibly can be.”

What's happening now:

President Trump wrongfully attacked the Mayor of London over the weekend concerning his comments that the police were doing their best to handle the situation.

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

J.K. Rowling, author of the incredibly popular Harry Potter series, wasn't going to sit by and let Trump cause more fear and chaos to dominate the situation.

She tweeted, “It's called ‘leadership', Donald. The terrorists were dead 8 minutes after police got the call. If we need an alarmist blowhard, we'll call.”

There was quite a bit of backlash from everyday people concerning Trump's tweet:
