It's been almost two years now here and a half ago. When the president talked about. How we have to be more committed to national security one of the reasons we have. The travel ban here three ad executive order is a focus on national security I was when he was trying to. The same date that the mayor said there's no reason to be alarmed. By the terrorist attack and is in the public the mayors at the mayor in fact said that the threat level remains severe that the chances of another attack her highly likely. He was saying don't be alarmed by the armed police presence on the street from the president. Directly misrepresented. What the mayor of London's. I think that's actually true I think that the media wants to spend it that way they did they didn't have the right everything there's no reason to be alarmed by an attack on the city you think that's what what he was there.
