Adjust Comment Print

After a makeshift bomb exploded in a London Underground station Friday and injured at least 30 people, Donald Trump tweeted speculatively about the investigation and took the time to promote his own immigration ban efforts.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter. "These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard", he posted in a preceding message.

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

"Must be proactive & nasty!"

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

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

British police arrested an unidentified 18-year-old suspect in the London train bomb attack Friday morning that injured 30.

Pak violates ceasefire again, BSF jawan killed in Arnia
Incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops have increased sharply this year. The jawan hailed from Vidya Bhawan Naraypur village in Balia district of UP.

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

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".

Scotland Yard declined to comment on Trump's tweets.

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 worldwide affairs. In March the country witnessed a vehicular and knife attack near Parliament, and then in May, a suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded 59 others at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester. "As London has proven, again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism", he said. Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet.

The Trump administration and groups challenging the travel ban are preparing for a Supreme Court showdown on October 10 on whether the president had the authority to impose his executive order in the first place.

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

On September 7 a federal court in San Francisco, the liberal-leaning 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, rejected the Trump administration's limited view of who is allowed into the United States under the travel ban.
