President Trump calls for British police to be 'proactive' after terror attack

President Trump calls for British police to be 'proactive' after terror attack Theresa May scolds Trump over 'unhelpful' terror attack tweets

The president's tweets come after a fire at a London subway station on Friday, which sent at least 22 people to hospitals.

Tweets from the United States president following a terrorist attack on Friday prompted an immediate backlash.

Trump was accused of betraying intelligence details by saying those responsible for an explosion on an underground train "are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard".

Soon after the attack, Trump pointed fingers at British police and advised them to be "proactive".

That electronic broadside brought a terse public response from Ms May, who warned the U.S. president and others not to speculate.

May, when asked directly about Trump's tweets, responded in a broadcast interview: "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate about what is an ongoing investigation".

Not only May but her former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, also censured Trump.

"True or not-and I'm sure he doesn't know-this is so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner", Timothy tweeted Friday.

The White House said Trump and May spoke Friday.

Friday's attack was the latest in a string of terror attacks in Britain this year.

Police forensics officers works alongside an underground tube train at a platform at Parsons Green underground tube station in west London on 15 September 2017, following an incident on an underground tube carriage at the station.

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

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

The normally tight-lipped agency called the allegations "nonsense", adding that "they are utterly ridiculous and should be ignored".

In his first on-camera remarks today, Trump called the attack "an absolutely awful thing". He added that his travel ban targeting six mostly Muslim nations should be "far larger, tougher and more specific - but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

In another tweet, he said, "Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner.The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"
