Trump blasts 'loser terrorists' behind London train attack

Trump denounces 'loser terrorist' after London attack London Tube explosion: Donald Trump says internet must be 'cut off' to stop further terror attacks

At least 22 people were injured in London Friday morning when what police are describing as a crude device was exploded on a crowded commuter train. That the UK has become vulnerable to terror attacks gets credence from the data released by the UK Home Office which says that the country witnessed a record 68 per cent rise in the number of people arrested for terrorism-linked offences in the year 2017.

The red and white slides feature Trump's controversial tweets pre-presidency, along with a contradicting tweet a few years later, on each strap.

He later added: "Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".

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

Trump also spoke about a travel ban he advocated in the United States.

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

The tweet came after another message in which he appeared to suggest that the attacker had been known to police, despite Scotland Yard not having said so.

Trump's tweetstorm Friday wasn't the first time he'd quickly turned to social media to tout his ban following a possible terrorist attack. "It keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough - perhaps we're not almost tough enough".

Between expressing solidarity with the English Prime Minister Theresa May and taking advantage of the misfortune of others to make political proselytism, the president has chosen the second option.

"I've simply been too busy this morning to look at Twitter", Khan said when asked about Trump's tweets in an interview aired on a British radio station. He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Trump's reaction prompted the London's Metropolitan Police to dismiss the tweet as "unhelpful speculation", while Prime Minister Theresa May felt that "it's not helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

The ban affects travelers from six mostly Muslim nations and refugees anywhere in the world.

The US Supreme Court allowed a partial version of Trump's ban to be implemented in June.

Besides again voicing his desire for a travel ban, Trump's tweets also raised the issue of online recruitment, which he wrote, "We must cut off [and] use better".
