Trump Reacts to London Terror Attack in Series of Strong Tweets

Citing London terrorist attack, Trump calls for expansion of his travel ban

Trump is returning from Florida after viewing damage from Hurricane Irma.

President Donald Trump's Twitter comments regarding Friday's explosion aboard a London subway auto were rebuked as "unhelpful" by British government officials.

US President Donald Trump has claimed Scotland Yard knew about the Parsons Green Tube bomber.

According to the White House, Trump expressed sympathy for the people injured and promised to continue working with the British to fight terrorism.

"I want to say that our hearts and prayers go out to the people of London who suffered a vicious terrorist attack", he said. "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Trump wrote in a tweet.

He also suggested potential attackers were "in the sights of Scotland Yard". "Must be proactive!" Asked about Trump's comments later by British media, May said in London that "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

The "special relationship" had already come under strain earlier in the year, when the then White House press secretary Sean Spicer repeated claims that GCHQ, the United Kingdom surveillance agency, had been involved in bugging the Trump campaign on behalf of Barack Obama.

May said those comments were irresponsible as police still comb for clues. Trump said Thursday he was "fairly close" to an agreement that could protect the "dreamers" while also adding border security, as long as his wall with Mexico was also separately addressed.

This isn't the first time Trump has used terrorist attacks in London to call for his travel ban.

Shortly after an attack in central London last June, in which a driver struck several people on London Bridge, the president took to Twitter.

And Trump promoted his handling of extremist militants, saying the government should cut off internet access for such groups.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Trump added.

"Must be proactive & nasty!"

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 United States for 90 days and all refugees for 180 days, later struck down by the courts. The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on October 10 on the legality of the bans on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees anywhere in the world.
