Donald Trump's London terrorist attack tweet 'unhelpful' - Met Police

British Prime Minister Theresa May has criticised USA president Donald Trump for "unhelpful" speculation about the perpetrators of a train bombing that injured dozens of people.

"Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner", he wrote.

On Friday, he again stressed that the internet was a main recruitment tool for terrorists.

Trump concluded: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

"I think he means generally this kind of activity is what we're trying to prevent", McMaster told reporters Friday.

At the time, police had not identified any suspects nor had they arrested anyone in connection with the attack.

Trump made the comment after tweeting about a reported explosion and fire on a subway train in London that police say was a terrorist incident.

Israeli officials also condemned the terror attack.

In response, a spokesperson for Khan said the mayor had "more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks".

On Twitter, he advocated for a "far larger, tougher and more specific" travel ban, adding, "but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

He also renewed a call to shut down internet capabilities, a claim he had made during his presidential campaign in 2015.

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. Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.

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".

The Trump administration's original policy called for a 90-day travel ban - which will be over in late September - and a 120-day refugee ban which will expire a month later.

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. His post comes ahead of a key Supreme Court hearing next month on the constitutionality of his executive order on the ban.

The arguments will focus on the legality of the ban on travelers from six Muslim majority countries and any refugees.
