The mayor of London says Donald Trump's comments about the British capital are "nonsense," and has invited the U.S. Republican presidential hopeful to come and see for himself.

Trump, who on Monday called for a "total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States," told MSNBC that some parts of London "are so radicalized that the police are afraid for their own lives."

But London Mayor Boris Johnson said Trump's "ill-informed comments are complete and utter nonsense."

Johnson said he would "welcome the opportunity to show Mr. Trump firsthand some of the excellent work our police officers do every day in local neighborhoods throughout our city."

Johnson added "the only reason I wouldn't go to some parts of New York is the real risk of meeting Donald Trump."
