Crude Bomb Explodes in London Underground, Injuring 22

Trump blasts 'loser terrorists' behind London train attack Trump denounces 'loser terrorist' after London attack

Theresa May complained directly to Donald Trump after the USA president said on Twitter that the people behind a Friday bombing in London were known to British police, according to a United Kingdom government official familiar with the conversation.

Trump also linked Friday's attack to his controversial travel ban, tweeting that he would be looking to intensify the ban on travel to the United States.

Soon after 22 people were injured in the attack on a busy underground train in west London, Trump tweeted: "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

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

He tweeted, "Must be proactive & nasty!"

"I think he means generally this kind of activity is what we're trying to prevent", McMaster told reporters Friday.

London police have declined to comment on Trump's tweets, and have given no information about potential suspects.

Trump also took the opportunity to highlight "tough talk" on terror such as increasing the travel ban into the United States.

President Donald Trump speaks to members of the media before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Thursday, Sept. 14, 2017, for a short trip to Andrews Air Force Base and then on to Fort Myers, Fla.to meet with citizens impacted by Hurricane Irma.

The President added that he had called May about the attack.

The tweets followed breaking news that a bomb was detonated on a London tube train on Friday that injured at least 20, including children.

Nick Timothy, a former senior aide to British Prime Minister Theresa May, echoed London police's comments.

"Scotland Yard has been a leader, and our Federal Bureau of Investigation has been a leader".

Trump has repeatedly pointed to his travel ban as a cornerstone of his counterterrorism platform.

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

Trump is using the incident to defend his travel ban against six Muslim-majority countries.

Trump has not been shy in critiquing Khan, London's first Muslim mayor, on Twitter since taking office with Khan even calling on the British government to cancel Trump's state visit.

The court, which narrowed the scope of lower court rulings that had completely blocked his March 6 executive order, said it would hear arguments on the legality of one of Trump's signature policies in his first months as president in the court's next term, which starts in October.
