US President Trump blasts 'loser terrorists' behind London train attack

The news organization reports it remains unclear if the Trump Administration will look to renew the travel bans.

The official said that at this point, USA agencies had no information to back up any suggestion by Trump that Britain had advance warning or specific intelligence on the attack.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", the USA president tweeted.

The London bomb exploded on a packed train during morning rush hour Friday, leaving at least 29 people injured.

"As I have said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible", she said.

This isn't the first time Trump has used terrorist attacks in London to call for his travel ban.

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.

Minutes later, the U.S. president followed with two more tweets, commenting on the fight against terrorism and his administration's efforts to do so. "Must be proactive!" he tweeted.

National Basketball Association expected to vote on draft lottery reform
The proposed changes would begin with the 2019 draft and include a smoothing out of odds among the league's worst teams, per ESPN. For example, the team with the worst record could potentially fall to No. 5 instead of the current floor of No. 4.

Trump concluded: "Must be proactive & nasty!" The incident left 18 people injured but no one seriously hurt. As a candidate, Trump often pledged to "bomb the hell out of ISIS" and vowed to enact a Muslim ban. Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet.

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

Similarly, May fumed to Trump after US media published leaked information about a British police investigation into the bombing of the Manchester Arena in May that killed 22 people.

At an event at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, Trump said he offered prayers for London and said "radical Islamic terrorism ... it will be eradicated, believe me". He also says the government should cut off Internet access to extremist groups.

Donald Trump said Friday after the latest terror attack in London that his controversial six-nation travel ban should be broadened and made 'tougher'.

But May dismissed the speculative tweet from Trump that claimed Scotland Yard had the so-called "bucket bomber" in terror attack on a London Underground train in their "sights".

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Trump added.

A former adviser to Theresa May, Nick Timothy, responded to Trump's tweets nearly instantly, questioning whether it was based on actual intelligence.
