Trump condemns London bombing: 'A bad thing'

Trump condemns London bombing: 'A bad thing'

He added that his travel ban targeting six mostly Muslim nations should be "far larger, tougher and more specific - but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

"It's a bad thing", he said of the London attack. An explosion on a London Underground train on Friday was caused by an "improvised explosive device", British police said.

In a tweet, Mr Trump described the attackers as "loser terrorists" and "sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard".

Israeli officials, ministers and dignitaries were also quick to convey their support on social media.

There was talk earlier this year of suspending transatlantic security briefings after details of the investigation into the bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, northern England, which killed 22 people, were leaked to the media by US authorities.

Theresa May's former adviser Nick Timothy reacted to Trump's intervention by saying: 'This is so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner'.

On 3 June, the day of the terrorist attack on London Bridge, the president tweeted: "We need to be smart, vigilant and tough".

Trump used the terrorist attack to revive his push for a travel ban for people from predominantly Muslim countries, an effort that has been hampered by US courts.

Scotland Yard said it would not comment Trump's suggestion that police could have prevented the attack. He added. "The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"

Officials have said the 90-day period will expire in less than two weeks, and Trump will face a critical decision on what to do about the ban's future.

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".

Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet. "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years". "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 concluded, "Must be proactive & nasty!"
