Notations On Our World (Special Sunday Edition): On the Eve of a New Week.....

Dubai, UAE (Source; The Interecept) 

It has been quite a 24 remarkable 24 hours.   President Trump went after the Mayor 

Of London as the Mayor tried to calm the situation which provoked a backlash on 

social media.    The Spokesman for the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, noted that,

 "...he's got better things to do.." and the Labor Leader, Jeremy Corbyn,

 was no less gracious to the President during remarks on Sunday.  What was 

especially interesting was how the US Embassy in London reacted in direct

contradiction of President as reported by CNN: 

In contrast to a critical tweet from U.S. President Donald Trump, the U.S. Embassy 

in the UK sent out words of praise for London Mayor Sadiq Khan's leadership. 

It was among three tweets offering condolences and heaping praise on police, 

emergency responders and ordinary Londoners. The tweets were signed by 

Lew Lukens, the embassy's chargé d'affaires ad interim.
