Trump Seizes on London Attack to Push for Expanding a Travel Ban

Trump Seizes on London Attack to Push for Expanding a Travel Ban

British Prime Minister Theresa May has criticised USA president Donald Trump for "unhelpful" speculation about the perpetrators of a train bombing that injured dozens of people.

"Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".

So far this year the United Kingdom has had a series of unprecedented terror attacks in Westminster, London Bridge, Borough Market, Manchester and Finsbury Park.

"These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard".

Although he confirmed he had been briefed on London, the President did not say whether that briefing happened before or after his tweets.

National Security Adviser HR McMaster later suggested Trump was speaking generally in the series of tweets.

A home-made bomb on a packed rush-hour commuter train in London engulfed a carriage in flames and injured 29 people yesterday, but apparently failed to fully explode, in Britain's fifth major terrorism incident this year. The other issue is that the White House is full of enablers, including chief of staff John Kelly, who simply won't stand up to Trump, take his phone away, and tell him to stop tweeting. "Any speculation is unhelpful".

At the time, police had not identified any suspects nor had they arrested anyone in connection with the attack. Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.

"I think he means generally that this kind of activity is what we're trying to prevent", McMaster said. "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 told reporters in the Rose Garden of the White House. After two terror attacks in the city in June, Trump seized on the moment. The news organization reports it remains unclear if the Trump Administration will look to renew the travel bans. Trump said on Twitter.

Recently, the Supreme Court allowed the Trump administration to maintain its ban on refugees.

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

United States President, Donald Trump is in the controversy again.
