Trump and Kahn

President Trump tweets: At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed." Minutes later: "Do you notice we are not having a gun debate right now? That's because they used knives and a truck!"

Sadiq Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, had said he was "appalled and furious," urged Londoners to remain both "calm" and "vigilant" as more attacks were "highly likely" but said Brits had proved their "stoicism" in the face of terror.

A spokesman for Khan, after Trump's tweet: "He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet."

P.M. Theresa May

A massive wildfire that prompted mandatory evacuations in Southern California over the weekend burned 26,450 acres and was 5% contained by Monday afternoon, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said.

The big picture: As California remains an epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., some 15 separate fires are raging across the state. About 7,800 people were under evacuation orders from the Apple Fire, about 75 miles east of Los Angeles, as hundreds of firefighters battled the blaze. CalFire said Monday that a malfunction involving a "diesel-fueled vehicle emitting burning carbon from the exhaust system" started the Apple Fire.

The Federal Trade Commission has accused Twitter of using phone numbers and emails from its users to make targeted ads between 2013 and 2019, Twitter said in an SEC filing published Monday.

Why it matters: Twitter estimates that the FTC's draft complaint, which was sent a few days after its Q2 earnings report, could cost the company between $150 million and $250 million. The complaint is unrelated to the recent Twitter hack involving a bitcoin scam.
