Trump scolded by police and PM for 'unhelpful' tweets after London attack

Trump scolded by police and PM for 'unhelpful' tweets after London attack

President Donald Trump has blasted the "loser terrorists" behind an attack on a London Underground train that has injured at least 18 people.

That followed other tweets the president made on the attacks where he called the terrorists losers. "Must be proactive!", Trump said through his Twitter account.

In a statement, Congressman Robert Pittenger said this vicious terrorist attack on innocent commuters in London with an improvised explosive device once again reflects the harsh reality of these barbaric adversaries. He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!" "It keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough - perhaps we're not almost tough enough". Trump said in the second tweet.

Similarly, May fumed to Trump after USA media published leaked information about a British police investigation into the bombing of the Manchester Arena in May that killed 22 people.

On Friday, Trump also tweeted that the internet must be "cut off" to stop further terrorist attacks as it was a "recruiting tool".

Trump, addressing reporters briefly on camera, called the attack "an absolutely awful thing".

The President added that he had called May about the attack.

However, the United ace instead received treatment from a personal trainer. It's simple and objective that he's not playing this weekend.

"The attack was meant to cause significant harm, and 22 people have been injured and are being treated in hospital", May said while speaking to media.

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

British Prime Minister Theresa May said her "thoughts are with those injured".

The president has repeatedly criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the British capital's first Muslim leader.

The ban affects travelers from six mostly Muslim nations and refugees anywhere in the world.

The Trump administration and groups challenging the travel ban are preparing for a Supreme Court showdown on October 10 on whether the president had the authority to impose his executive order in the first place.

He also tied his demand for a more robust travel ban to an unusual claim that Scotland Yard was familiar with Friday's bombers ahead of time and missed the chance to catch them before he launched the attack.
