Trump condemns London bombing: 'A awful thing'

Donald Trump says Parsons Green attacker is a 'demented terrorist' and calls for internet to be 'cut off'

British Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday it was not helpful for anyone to speculate on investigations after U.S. President Donald Trump tweeted that the culprits behind a train bombing had been "in the sights" of the police.

A City Hall source said: "He hopes people don't speculate on things before we know the full facts. We are also aware of the attack in Burgundy, and our thoughts are with those wounded in that incident", Sanders said.

"I think he means generally that this kind of activity is what we are trying to prevent", McMaster said.

Speaking to LBC host James O'Brien about Trump's tweets, Khan said: "I've simply been too busy this morning to look at my Twitter".

"The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at her daily news conference: "The United States strongly condemns the cowardly terrorist attack in London today that targeting innocent civilians during their commute on the subway". The incident is being treated as terrorism by the police.

Trump's tough talk came a day after he drew conservative criticism for pursuing an agreement with Democrats on young immigrants who had been living in the country illegally that would delay funding for his long-promised border wall.

"The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!" he added, also giving no details.

In a trademark tweet issued within hours of the blast, Mr Trump wrote: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist". And, he said, his administration was doing more to combat ISIS than the Obama White House.

Trump concluded, "Must be proactive & nasty!" "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

I am in close contact with the Metropolitan Police, Transport for London, Government and other emergency services who are responding at the scene and leading the investigation.

May protested to Trump after USA officials leaked information about a deadly bombing in Manchester in May.

The latest spat comes after British police temporarily suspended intelligence-sharing with the USA in the wake of the Manchester Arena bombing in May following a series of leaks to American media. Trump shared the information with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting.
