Parsons Green: Trump says 'loser' attackers known to police

09_15_Parsons_Green_2

The police has identified the explosion as a terrorist attack.

Mr Trump said authorities needed to be proactive about the "sick and demented people" behind the attack.

He then added: "Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner", without giving details of what that meant.

As one of his first orders of business after entering the White House in January, Trump penned an executive order banning travel and refugee status for people from six predominantly Muslim nations.

Stephanopoulos asked May if a travel ban is something she would reconsider in light of Friday's terror attack.

Trump told reporters after his tweet that he had been briefed on the London incident, and he also said he would be speaking with May, although it was not clear whether his reference to Scotland Yard came up on the call. "As London has proven again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism", he said.

"I spoke with a wonderful woman, British Prime Minster Theresa May, this morning and relayed America's deepest sympathy as well as our absolute commitment to eradicate the terrorists from our planet", Trump said.

Diplomacy is an art that the American president still can not handle.

Around 20 people were injured after an explosion occurred on an underground train at Parsons Green station in London.

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.

It's not the first time Trump has used a terrorist attack to promote the ban. "Any speculation is unhelpful".

The whole event was a little surreal: the President had gone outside to watch an 11-year-old called Frankie Giaccio mow the lawn (Frankie had written to the White House asking if he could) and ended up talking global affairs.

Mr Trump wasn't responsible, of course, but U.S. secretary of state Rex Tillerson was dispatched to London to head off a full-blown diplomatic row after intelligence sharing was briefly suspended.

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

"For years, Scotland Yard has been a leader, as our Federal Bureau of Investigation has been a leader", McMaster said, conciliatorily.

Simon Coveney was quick to express his thoughts and prayers with the victims in the London train blast and also to dismiss any chance of any Irish citizens to be involved in the attack.
