After Donald Trump Jr. criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan for his comments on preparation for terrorism, Khan dismissed his tweets in a Thursday interview.

Khan said in September that the threat of terror attacks is "part and parcel of living in a big city." Trump Jr. tweeted Wednesday that Khan said "terror attacks are part of living in a big city."

This outraged many Britons who claimed Trump Jr. quoted Khan out of context.

Here's Trump Jr.'s original words.

I'm not going to respond to tweets by Donald Trump. I've been doing far more important things over the last 24 hours.
Sadiq Khan, London mayor

When asked about Trump Jr.'s tweets on Thursday, Khan dismissed them.

Many Britons responded angrily, suggesting he didn't read the article he quoted.

A member of Parliament called Trump Jr. a  "disgrace."

Many pointed to Khan's statement after the attacks. He said London would not be "cowed."

Trump Jr. has sparked outrage on Twitter before. He once compared refugees to poisoned Skittles, sparking outrage and snarky responses from Congress. Trump Jr. told the New York Times Wednesday he would not comment on "every tweet I send."
