Trump on No-Go Zones in London

Trump:  ""We have places in London and other places that are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives. We have to be very smart and very vigilant.""

London's Mayor:  "mocked the idea police would stay away from some neighbourhoods as “ill-informed” and “complete and utter nonsense” and said the comments were an insult to London’s “proud history of tolerance and diversity”
Scotland Yard:  "We would not normally dignify such comments with a response. However, we think it's important to state that Trump could not be more wrong,"

Serving officers in London: 'Trump's not wrong. He pointed out something that is plainly obvious'
We "fear being terror targets".   'I'm not allowed to travel in half blues to work anymore IN MY OWN CAR as we're "All at risk of attack"

Saying something is so doesn't make it so.  I'll go with the officers over the mayor and Scotland Yard.
This puts me mind of the Lincoln story:
"How many legs does a dog have if you call the tail a leg? Four. Calling a tail a leg doesn't make it a leg."
