Trump says London train attackers known to police

London Underground terror attack Donald Trump blasts 'loser terrorists', calls for tough action

In news that should surprise exactly no-one, the President of the United States' response to the rush hour explosion that injured 18 people on the London subway this morning has been, well, less than presidential.

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

Stephanopoulos asked May if a travel ban is something she would reconsider in light of Friday's terror attack.

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

Theresa May didn't like Trump's comments.

Trump's tweets implied that the British police could have done more to prevent the attack and that United Kingdom authorities had been monitoring those responsible for setting off explosives in the tube station.

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

President Donald Trump is defending his travel ban.

Mr Trump has form with London attacks.

A police spokesperson told CNN Trump's comment is "pure speculation given we don't know who is involved".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said in a statement that his city will not be defeated by terrorists. Trump said Thursday he was "fairly close" to an agreement that could protect these so-called "dreamers" while also adding border security, as long as his wall with Mexico would be separately addressed.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments on October 10 on the legality of the bans on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees anywhere in the world.

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

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

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. The order might give hope to supporters of the ban, but it may also simply reflect a desire on the part of the justices to maintain the status quo until the justices can hear the case next month.
