London train attackers known to police

London train attackers known to police

After Friday's attack, which injured more than 20 people, Trump tweeted that the "sick and demented" terrorists must be "dealt with in a much tougher manner".

British police and a series of British officials have criticized President Donald Trump after he spoke of a "loser terrorist" being behind the bomb attack on Friday in London, before they had identified a suspect or a group had claimed responsibility. "Must be proactive!" he first tweeted in response.

On September 7 a federal court in San Francisco, the liberal-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, rejected the Trump administration's limited view of who is allowed into the United States under the travel ban.

'Another attack in London by a loser terrorist, ' Trump tweeted.

He did not immediately offer condolences to the British people.

He also pointed out that "Scotland Yard makes an arrest every four days using counter-terrorism intelligence".

Theresa May later rebuked her ally following a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee, saying: "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

After Trump asserted that his administration has done more to fight ISIS than former President Barack Obama's administration had in eight years, CNN's Jake Tapper was quick to point out that ISIS, in its current form, did not exist eight years ago.


This isn't the first time May has protested to Trump.

The US President said described the incident was "another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

Police said they were aware of reports on social media and would release facts regarding the incident once they could be sure of their accuracy. None of the perpetrators of the major USA terrorist attacks carried out in the name of Islam in the past 15 years have come from the nations on Trump's list of banned countries.

Police said there were 18 people injured, with most suffering flash burns.

The president's comments come just months after intelligence sharing between the United States and UK was strained when information was leaked by U.S. officials in the aftermath of the Manchester attack.

Trump has a chance to widen the travel ban later this month.

Shocked eyewitness Luke Warsmey said: "The explosion was like a large match going off at the end of the carriage".

The version of the ban permitted by the Supreme Court is Trump's second pass at the policy, which originally banned residents of seven Muslim-majority countries.
