British PM May Rebukes Trump Over Tweet After London Subway Detonation

Internet must be'cut off to stop further terror attacks Trump

Trump on Friday also used the London train attack to renew calls for his controversial travel ban on travelers from several predominantly Muslim countries, which is the subject of fierce legal battles in the U.S. but has partially gone into effect.

These tweets appear to suggest two things: one, that the person or people responsible for the explosion was known to Scotland Yard - something that Scotland Yard themselves have never said - and two, that the correct way to deal with "loser terrorists" is to cut off the internet.

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

US President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May during the G20 summit in July.

Scotland Yard said it was a terror incident and they "assess" an IED triggered the blast.

Although he confirmed he had been briefed on London, the President did not say whether that briefing happened before or after his tweets.

He went on, "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years". An explosion in a subway station in west London is being treated as terrorist incident, British counter terrorism sources said Friday.

Britain met Trump's comments levelly, flatly denying that security forces are aware of a specific attacker as of yet. He said "we have to be very smart".


But just after 6:30 AM, Trump weighed in on a litany of issues that clearly were on his mind, including Friday morning's terror attack in London at the Parsons Green train station.

In June, after attacks in the London Bridge area that claimed seven lives, London Mayor Sadiq Khan warned locals not to be alarmed by the large presence of armed officers on the capital's streets.

The tweet also seemed to imply that Scotland Yard knew about the terror attack. The Homeland Security report is expected to be presented to the White House in the coming weeks.

During the telephone call, Trump conveyed his sympathies and prayers for those injured in the attack, the White House said in a statement.

The travel ban bars people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. We need the courts to give us back our rights.

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.

That clock is set to run out before the end of this month, and the administration has not indicated yet what it will do next.
