May censures Trump for tweets on London terror attack

Then, a Downing Street spokesman said Trump had offered "his condolences over this morning's cowardly attack in London", which he described to reporters earlier as "a bad thing".

Unsurprisingly, British leaders- who have to actually deal with United Kingdom terrorist attacks, rather than just use them to build political capital- aren't too pleased.

US President Donald Trump has been condemned for his fast fingers by Theresa May, following the explosion. "We have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough - perhaps we're not almost tough enough", he told reporters at the White House.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Trump wrote in a tweet.

After Friday's attack, which injured more than 20 people, Trump tweeted that the "sick and demented" terrorists must be "dealt with in a much tougher manner".

Asked about Trump's comments, May said, "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

After an improvised bomb was detonated on a subway train in London on Friday, the United States president offered his solutions on Twitter. In March the country witnessed a vehicular and knife attack near Parliament, and then in May, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded 59 others at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!" he posted.

"We have made more progress in the last nine months against the ISIS than the Obama administration has made in eight years".

This isn't the first time Trump has used terrorist attacks in London to call for his travel ban.

At an event at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Trump said he offered prayers for London and said "radical Islamic terrorism ... it will be eradicated, believe me".

Trump followed minutes later with more tweets that talked about the fight against terrorism and his administration's efforts to do so. He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

President Donald Trump is defending his travel ban. "Must be proactive!" Trump said in one tweet.

Under the order, foreign nationals are banned for 90 days from six countries - Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen - and refugees lacking a link to the US are barred for 120 days. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on October 10 on the legality of the bans on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees anywhere in the world.
