Trump Tweet on London Police Draws UK Rebuke

Trump Tweet on London Police Draws UK Rebuke

In a trademark tweet issued within hours of the blast, Mr Trump wrote: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

"It's a awful thing", he said of the London attack.

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

In May, British officials were furious after their U.S. counterparts leaked shared material about an investigation into a bomb attack at a concert by pop star Ariana Grande in Manchester which left 22 dead.

A former adviser to Theresa May, Nick Timothy, responded to Trump's tweets nearly instantly, questioning whether it was based on actual intelligence.

The Prime Minister slammed Trump's comments about the ongoing investigation as not "helpful", adding police and security services were still working to discover the "full circumstances" of the "cowardly attack". "Must be proactive!", Trump tweeted, suggesting the attacker had been known to the police despite British authorities having publicly said no such thing.

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 [terrorists'] main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!" he tweeted.

"I wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct, not make a quick statement", Trump said, adding, "Y$3 ou don't make statements that direct unless you know the facts".

In a phone call with Mrs May on Friday, Mr Trump "pledged to continue close collaboration with the United Kingdom to stop attacks worldwide targeting innocent civilians and to combat extremism", the White House said.

"We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter", Trump told reporters before going into the Oval Office.

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.

"Must be proactive & nasty!"
