Israel tweets solidarity with injured in London train terror attack

BREAKING NEWS: Donald Trump tweets to claim Tube bomber was 'in the sights of Scotland Yard'

An improvised explosive device (IED) exploded on a packed underground train at a London station today, injuring at least 22 people in the fifth terrorist attack this year, which May said was "clearly meant to cause significant harm".

Trump used the terrorist attack to revive his push for a travel ban for people from predominantly Muslim countries, an effort that has been hampered by USA courts.

The bomb exploded on a packed train during rush hour on Friday, leaving at least 22 people injured but no one seriously hurt.

So, as Frankie's mower roared into life, Mr Trump turned and strode to the Oval Office to - he said - place a call to Theresa May. and perhaps try to fix some of that damage.

She 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".

The President used his third tweet about the attack to push his so-called Muslim travel ban in the USA, saying it should be "far larger, tougher and more specific".

"I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".

Security services told the Independent: "We don't even know who the suspects are so it's a bit hard to say".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan criticized Trump for the tweets and called on the British government to rescind an invitation for the president to visit the country. I don't want to go quickly and just make a statement for the sake of making a political statement. "The priority today is catching the individual or individuals responsible".

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 15, 2017Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner.The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better! Officials had not declared the incident a terrorist attack at the time.

Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet. "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".
