Trump denounces attack in London, urges "proactive" steps

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

"Must be proactive!" the United States president said on Twitter.

A blast took place on a packed rush-hour carriage at Parsons Green subway station on Friday morning in London, leaving at least 29 people injured.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

The President has form with London attacks.

Nick Timothy, a former senior aide to British Prime Minister Theresa May, echoed London police's comments.

According to The New York Times, Trump's tweets only add to the strain that's been buckling the U.S. and UK's special relationship.

With each half-baked tweet that comes out of his phone, Donald Trump chips away at the credibility of the presidency as an institution.

He tweeted, "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Senate opens debate on Wisconsin budget
Fitzgerald had indicated he would call the Senate into session to take up the budget, despite lacking the votes to pass it. If the Senate amends the budget, the Assembly would have to vote again, but that may not happen until October.

The manhunt for the terrorist who placed the homemade bomb, which only partially exploded, on the subway train is underway while the investigation into the attack continues. The incident left 18 people injured but no one seriously hurt.

The US Supreme Court recently handed a victory to Trump by allowing his temporary bans on travellers from six Muslim-majority countries and all refugees to go into effect for people with no connection to the United States while agreeing to hear his appeals in the closely watched legal fight. As a candidate, Trump often pledged to "bomb the hell out of ISIS" and vowed to enact a Muslim ban. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!" he tweeted. He says it should be "tougher and more specific".

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

Asked about his tweet on the travel ban, Trump said "we have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

Under the order, foreign nationals are banned for 90 days from six countries - Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen - and refugees lacking a link to the USA are barred for 120 days. In June, he criticized London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, over his response to another terrorist attack, misconstruing Mr. Khan's words.

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

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".

It's not the first time Trump has used a terrorist attack to promote the ban.
