Trump tweets tough talk after London explosion

Trump tweets tough talk after London explosion”

In news that should surprise exactly no-one, the President of the United States' response to the rush hour explosion that injured 18 people on the London subway this morning has been, well, less than presidential.

Farage said he expects Trump's claim to be proven right.

In a TV statement on Saturday, Prime Minister Theresa May raised the United Kingdom terror threat from "severe" to "critical", prompting fear another attack may be imminent.

"We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years.Must be proactive & nasty!" he tweeted.

Nick Timothy, a former senior aide to the British premier, dismissed Trump's tweets, saying it was "so unhelpful from [the] leader of our ally and intelligence partner".

President Trump tweeted after the attack that the terrorist was known to Scotland Yard beforehand.

An explosion on a London Underground train on Friday was caused by an "improvised explosive device", British police said.

"The travel ban into the U.S. should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

"We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter", Trump told reporters before going into the Oval Office.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement that his city will not be defeated by terrorists.

But according to Bloomberg, the British prime minister expressed her displeasure with Trump's remarks directly to the president himself.

The group has claimed other attacks in Britain this year, including two in London and one at a concert by American singer Ariana Grande in Manchester, but intelligence officials say there is scant evidence that it had orchestrated them. Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet. "Must be proactive!" Trump said in one tweet.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments to decide the travel ban's constitutionality in October. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

The ban was ordered to be in effect for 90 days, during which the administration would assess vetting procedures and whether they're secure enough.
