Trump angers Britain after London attack

  • Internet must be'cut off to stop further terror attacks Trump

President Donald Trump condemned "loser terrorists" in a series of tweets Friday morning after a bomb exploded on a London Underground train.

And yet, there was Trump this morning, responding with lightning speed this morning to the detonation of a device aboard a London subway train, tweeting, "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

His assertion that the London attackers "were in the sights of Scotland Yard" was either the revelation of shared intelligence or what the Prime Minister called unhelpful speculation.

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

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

The threat level was last raised to the highest level following the Manchester concert bombing in May, which killed 22, and remained there for several days.

In short remarks to reporters, Trump said he had been briefed on the explosion but did not elaborate on what he meant in his reference to Scotland Yard.

Among his first actions after taking office in January was to order a ban on all citizens from seven Muslim-majority nations - Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Sudan, Libya and Somalia from entering the U.S. for 90 days and all refugees for 180 days, later struck down by the courts.

More than 20 people were taken to the hospital after an improvised explosive device detonated inside a packed subway vehicle at the Parsons Green station.

At a White House briefing ahead of next week's U.N. General Assembly meeting, Trump's national security adviser, H.R. McMaster, said the president was referring generically to British efforts to combat terrorism and was not making a reference to any specific knowledge authorities in London may have had.

Trump also sparked anger after van and knife attacks on London Bridge when he used Twitter to criticize Mayor Sadiq Khan's response just days before the June general election.

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

Trump's tweet seemed to envision such a "larger, tougher" ban, though he also said the measure needed to be "more specific" - which might indicate the White House is not inclined to bar people merely due to their nationality. "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".

"Must be proactive & nasty!"

The Supreme Court granted Tuesday a Trump administration request to continue to bar most refugees under its travel ban.
