Donald Trump Uses London Tube Attack To Promote Travel Ban

Trump blasts 'loser terrorists' behind London train attack

Many British reporters and members of the public have taken issue with Trump's tweets, particularly the implication that he knows something about the attackers that the rest of the United Kingdom doesn't - and perhaps shouldn't.

"It is not something we would comment on", a spokeswoman said.

Trump had tweeted, "Another attack in London by a loser terrorist".

In a flurry of early-morning tweets, Trump called the explosion another attack "by a loser terrorist" and suggested London police missed an opportunity to prevent it.

Indian troops kill top militant commander, associate in Indian-controlled Kashmir gunfight
Our targets are only those who aid and assist India in crushing this freedom struggle", Askari said. Vaid said: "Police was after him for quite some time and finally we have been able to gun him down".

Meanwhile, the U.S. president on Friday claimed his administration had "made more progress in the last nine months" against the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group than his predecessor, Barack Obama.

"I've simply been too busy this morning to look at Twitter", Khan said when asked about Trump's tweets in an interview aired on a British radio station.

May added that the Improvised Explosive Device was "intended to cause significant harm" as the District line train was packed during the rush hour.

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said the attack was an attempt by "evil and cowardly" individuals to disrupt the city's way of life, adding that the capital would never be defeated by terrorism.

At least 24 people, mostly teen boys, killed in Malaysian school fire
He said 23 students and two adult wardens were killed - either trapped by the fire or dying from smoke inhalation. Firefighters who rushed to the scene put out the blaze within an hour but not before it wreaked devastation.

Trump's tweetstorm Friday wasn't the first time he'd quickly turned to social media to tout his ban following a possible terrorist attack.

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

"Nevertheless, given the current high terror threat level and the potential for attacks against multiple targets, including against the Jewish community, we urge everybody to be vigilant, to report anything suspicious and to follow all security protocols and instructions if you are visiting a Jewish location". The prime minister also said members of the military will begin aiding police, providing security at some sites not accessible to the public. "It keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough perhaps we're not almost tough enough", Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden of the White House. So I think if there was a terrorist attack here, God forbid, that we would say that they were in the sights of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The same court ruled that refugees accepted by a resettlement agency should be allowed to sidestep the White House's broad ban, opening the door for as many as 24,000 refugees to enter the country before the end of October.

Death toll reaches 50 in twin attacks in southern Iraq
It occurs in aftermath of a visit of iraqi prime minister, Haider Al-Abadi, in province of Dhi Qar, in particular, to Nasiriyya. More than 80 people were injured in the attacks, many of them seriously, and the death toll could rise, health officials said.

He also renewed his call for a tougher travel ban in the United States.
