Trump takes advantage of the London attack to promote his travel ban

Trump blasts 'loser terrorists' behind London train attack

Trump's tweets took an apparent dig at British police, implying that they could have done more to stop the attack, which left at least 29 people injured.

In a statement, Congressman Robert Pittenger said this vicious terrorist attack on innocent commuters in London with an improvised explosive device once again reflects the harsh reality of these barbaric adversaries.

So, as Frankie's mower roared into life, Mr Trump turned and strode to the Oval Office to - he said - place a call to Theresa May. and perhaps try to fix some of that damage.

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

Earlier Friday, Trump posted several tweets about both the terror attack and the ongoing efforts to thwart terrorism. He also attacked London Mayor Sadiq Khan's response to the attack, prompting Khan to call on United Kingdom officials to cancel the president's upcoming visit.

"We're losing a lot of people because of the internet", Trump said then.

The police has identified the explosion as a terrorist attack.

Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.

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. He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Trump called May to discuss the attack Friday.

One of America's oldest and truest allies would appreciate it if Donald Trump would keep his opinions to himself.

The US Supreme Court recently handed a victory to Trump by allowing his temporary bans on travellers from six Muslim-majority countries and all refugees to go into effect for people with no connection to the United States while agreeing to hear his appeals in the closely watched legal fight.

The 90-day ban on travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen expires later this month, with the 120-day refugee ban coming up in October. "The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!" he added, without elaborating.

Meanwhile, weighing in on the comments, former Conservative lawmaker Ben Howlett, called Trump's tweets "dangerous and inappropriate".
