After the attack, President Trump's eldest son, Donald Jnr, launched into a scathing attack on Mr Khan, sharing a six-month-old story by The Independent on Twitter which quoted the Mayor of London saying terror attacks were "part and parcel" of living in a global city.
Khan observed a moment of silence on Tuesday to remember those killed and injured in the London Bridge attack.
This was a total misrepresentation by Trump and so he was criticized for the tweet, but Monday morning he jumped back into the controversy: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who reacted fast on his 'no reason to be alarmed" statement.
"When Theresa May first invited him on a state visit to our country at a time when he was proposing a travel ban on Muslims and changing the American policy on refugees, I said it was inappropriate to be rolling out the red carpet for Donald Trump", he told the BBC.
Mrs May had faced calls to distance herself Mr Trump for his incendiary remarks but for two days failed to directly address them.

Highlights of the NDP-Green deal in British Columbia
Yesterday, the Greens and NDP announced they planned of collaborating to form a majority in the BC Legislature. Clark will be speaking at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday to the NDP-Green agreement aimed at replacing her government.
Asked if Trump was wrong to make the comments, British Prime Minister Theresa May said at a news conference Monday that "Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job". The mayor had told London residents not to be concerned by a stepped-up police presence in the city after the incident. In the interview, Mr Khan was, in fact, urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they see more police and armed officers on the streets as a precautionary measure derived from previous terror attacks. "[Mainstream media] is working hard to sell it!" tweeted Trump.
"But as far as what Sadiq Khan has said about the reassurances he's offered the people of London, I think he was entirely right to speak in the way he did", he said. "No reason to be alarmed", Khan said.
Trump and Khan have had bad blood since, during his campaign for mayor, he had criticized Trump's "Muslim ban".
"At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'" the former reality TV star said on Twitter. "And I think that's what [my father is] trying to say because he's been proven right every time". "It happened again and we keep appeasing it and keep saying, 'okay, it's going to be great".
As for Trump, Khan acknowledges that Britain and the USA have a "special relationship", no matter who is president.
