Two of the men who carried out Saturday night's terror attack in London have been named by police.
He said many people were "very anxious that she was at the Home Office for all this time, presided over these cuts in police numbers, and now is saying that we have a problem".
In a clear reference to Trump's tweets Sunday and Monday criticizing London Mayor Sadiq Khan, Clinton said: "It's a time for steady, determined leadership - like we are seeing from local authorities in London, including the mayor of London".
Choate acknowledges that people traumatized by such events face an uphill emotional struggle - one that can last for years -but he has some professional advice for those trying to cope.
Three jihadis drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge on Saturday night before running into the bustling Borough Market area where they slit people's throats and stabbed them indiscriminately. Seven people were killed and dozens wounded.
The Islamic State militant group has claimed responsibility for the attack.
The 27-year-old manic, who Express.co.uk has decided not to name, was pictured lying dead wearing an Arsenal shirt after armed police gunned down him and two other terror thugs.
"There's nothing better to do than come here and pay respect to such an very bad situation, you know, just to come out and be with everybody in a time where everybody needs to be together", said Matthew Chamberlain, 21, from south London.
He described Khan as "pathetic" for saying Londoners had "no reason to be alarmed" by the visible increase in armed police officers in response to the attack - apparently misinterpreting the mayor's words as a comment on Islamic extremism.
Of the 48 injured, 36 people remain in hospital, 21 of whom are critical. The campaign roared back into public view Monday after a one-day hiatus, with Prime Minister Theresa May and Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn trading blame over one another's security stances.
Christine Archibald, a 30-year-old Canadian woman, died in her fiance Tyler Ferguson's arms after being hit by the van on London Bridge. "I commend the strong leadership of the @MayorofLondon as he leads the city forward after this heinous attack", he said in an official tweet.
Before holding a minute's silence, Khan, the first Muslim to be elected mayor of a major Western European city, said: "I want to send a clear message to the sick and evil extremists who commit these disgusting crimes".
She said the same ideology was behind the May 22 suicide bombing at a pop concert in Manchester that left 22 people dead, and the Westminster Bridge attack in March, which killed five. "We can not say more about them at this stage". The three attackers were shot and killed by police.
Most of the London Underground stations reopened in the neighbourhood where the attack took place, allowing normal life and commerce to resume after more than 24 hours of lockdown.
