Trump wrote the attack was carried out by a "loser terrorist" and that people like the assailant "were in the sights of Scotland Yard".

In a series of early-morning Twitter posts, Mr. Trump said the London subway attack had been the work of "a loser terrorist" and suggested that those behind the assault had been "in the sights" of the British authorities.

May added that the Improvised Explosive Device was "intended to cause significant harm" as the District line train was packed during the rush hour. Yet, the London Metropolitan Police released a statement stating that any of the speculation at this time, is not helpful.

Minutes later, the United States president followed with two more tweets, commenting on the fight against terrorism and his administration's efforts to do so.

US President Donald Trump has used the latest terrorist attack in London to promote his beleaguered travel ban on residents of six Muslim-majority countries, The Independence reported.

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster attempted to explain the President's morning assertion that culprits behind the explosion were known to British law enforcement, but offered little clarity.

Kyrgios will face Steve Darcis tomorrow; if he plays the way he has in Davis Cup matches this year he shouldn't have any problems. Australia's No. 1 player nearly saw his team put on the brink of defeat going into the doubles tilt, but Kyrgios had other ideas.

He termed Trump's comments unhelpful from Britain's intelligence partner. Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack.

"The joint terrorism and analysis centre, the independent organisation responsible for setting the threat level on the basis of available intelligence has now chose to raise it from severe to critical", May announced.

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

"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough". Western intelligence officials have questioned similar claims in the past, saying that while Islamic State's jihadist ideology may have inspired some attackers, there is scant evidence that it has orchestrated attacks. We need the courts to give us back our rights. In June, he responded to an assault on London Bridge by tweeting that, "we need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

As for the travel ban, A.P. notes that remains tangled in the court systems with the Supreme Court scheduled to listen to arguments on October 10.

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. His post comes ahead of a key Supreme Court hearing next month on the constitutionality of his executive order on the ban.
