Made bomb injures 29 on packed London commuter train

Police say 30 people, including a young boy, were injured during the attack on a rush-hour train packed with school children and commuters.

The president said he planned to call British Prime Minister Theresa May "right now".

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!"

Was he criticising Scotland Yard and the British intelligence services for not acting sooner?

The condemnation came on Friday, shortly after Trump posted several tweets about both the terror attack on London's Parsons Green subway station that left at least 29 people injured and the ongoing efforts to thwart terrorism.

The White House said Trump and May spoke on Friday.

Trump, who spoke briefly with reporters before going into the Oval Office, said he had been briefed on the attack, which police called a terror incident, calling it a "terrible thing".

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

"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough".

Trump is destroying the presidency and the credibility of the United States one tweet at a time.

It was not immediately clear if the people behind the bomb attack on Friday were indeed previously known to British law enforcement. He and his son Donald Trump Jr both mocked Sadiq Khan after taking the mayor's words of reassurance to Londoners out of context.

Trump mischaracterized remarks Khan had made by suggesting the mayor had said there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack itself.

The US Supreme Court allowed a partial version of Trump's ban to be implemented in June.

"It's a awful thing", he said of the London attack.

Trump is using the incident to defend his travel ban against six Muslim-majority countries. "We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

Khan, the United Kingdom capital's first Muslim mayor, responded to Trump's tweets on Friday by saying that, "I'm not going to go there". Trump's executive order also requires reports on its effectiveness.
