Trump has leapt on the Londonattacks as evidence of the need for hardline security measures in the United States, including a "ban" on travelers from Muslim countries.
Unfortunately, that turned out to be an all-too-brief exception to the boorishness with which the president continues to undermine every conceivable goal other than reinforcing division and prejudice.
Acosta said, "There are going to be folks who are going to ask the question was the president attacking the major of London because he is Muslim".
Among Trump's first tweets reacting to the incident were promotions for his travel ban.
Meanwhile, even as Trump vows to be tough on terrorism, Politico noted, he has yet to nominate anyone to such key security and diplomatic posts as Transportation Security Administration chief, assistant attorney general for national security, ambassador to Britain, and Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
Mr Khan's spokesperson had described the first round of presidential tweets as "ill-informed" - and said they had deliberately taken his remarks out of context.
Trump's tweet renews his mischaracterization of Khan's statement to London residents following a vehicle and knife attack that left seven people dead and dozens injured.
Trump had faced a barrage of criticism on Sunday over an earlier Tweet that said: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'". "Londoners will see an increased police presence today and over the course of the next few days", he said.
In March 2017, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted a link to a September 2016 story in which Khan is quoted as saying terror attakcs are "part in parcel of living in a big city".
"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet to the president of the United States of America in the circumstances where his policies go against everything we stand for", he said.
When asked how relevant Trump's tweets are, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said "they matter in the sense that they give him a communications tool" but said "the media obsesses over every period, dot".
In one instance, he leveled an inaccurate criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying the mayor was telling people there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack.
Trump, writing on Twitter Monday, said: "Pathetic excuse by London Mayor Sadiq Khan who had to think fast on his "no reason to be alarmed" statement".
"There are many things about which Donald Trump is wrong".
Asked if Mr Trump was wrong in his assessment of the London mayor, the Prime Minister told reporters: "I think Sadiq Khan is doing a good job and it's wrong to say anything else - he's doing a good job".
