Theresa May complained to Trump after London bombing tweet

Theresa May complained to Trump after London bombing tweet

The president weighed in as police in and around London carried out a manhunt for the person or persons who set off a crude incendiary bomb on a subway auto during Friday's morning rush hour.

Police said they were treating the explosion as a "terrorist incident" and have launched an "urgent manhunt" for the suspect.

Trump told reporters Friday morning that he had been briefed on the explosion and said he planned to call May.

The last time Britain was put on "critical" alert was after a suicide bomber killed 22 people at the Ariana Grande concert in May.

"What the President was communicating is that obviously all of our law enforcement efforts are focused on this terrorism threat for years", McMaster said.

Prime Minister May said the public should not be alarmed by armed officers on the streets, a rare sight in Britain.

Asked about his tweet calling for a tougher travel ban, Trump said "we have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

The Trump administration and groups challenging the travel ban are preparing for a Supreme Court showdown on October 10 on whether the president had the authority to impose his executive order in the first place.

Meanwhile, the United States president on Friday claimed his administration had "made more progress in the last nine months" against the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group than his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Trump concluded: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Trump was tweeting after a homemade bomb exploded on a packed London subway train during rush hour on Friday.

Some suffered burns and others were injured in a stampede to escape the station, one of the above-ground stops on the underground "Tube" network, but health officials said none were thought to be in a serious condition.

The Trump administration's original policy called for a 90-day travel ban - which will be over in late September - and a 120-day refugee ban which will expire a month later. He says it should be "tougher and more specific".

Trump also tweeted criticism of London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who responded by saying Trump was wrong and should not make a state visit. The ban has been plagued with legal challenges since its inception, with many claiming it amounts to an unconstitutional ban on Muslims.

Moments after the news started spreading across the world, US President sent several tweets including one in which he advocated his travel ban and another which said that "those involved in the attack may have been recruited on the internet".

One can not help but wonder if Trump knows that "cutting off" the internet would also mean cutting off access to his beloved Twitter account.
