Theresa May complained to Trump after London bombing tweet

"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist", Mr Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump responded on Twitter: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is 'no reason to be alarmed!'".

Officials confirmed it as a terrorist attack, which is the fifth in Britain in 2017.

On Friday, he again stressed that the internet was a main recruitment tool for terrorists. "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".

"As I have said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible", she said.

Washington, Sep 16 (IANS) US President Donald Trump pledged close collaboration with Britain, hours after his tweet on the latest London attack drew pushback from the Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May.

Trump also took the opportunity to highlight "tough talk" on terror such as increasing the travel ban into the United States.

The President has form with London attacks.

Trump was quick to criticise law enforcement in the wake of the attack and implied the assailants had been know to Scotland Yard.

The President added that he had called May about the attack. "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years.Must be proactive & nasty!" the third and fourth tweet of Trump said. Between expressing solidarity with the English Prime Minister Theresa May and taking advantage of the misfortune of others to make political proselytism, the president has chosen the second option. His post comes ahead of a key Supreme Court hearing next month on the constitutionality of his executive order on the ban.

Trump told reporters Friday morning that he had been briefed on the explosion on a London train that left 22 people injured but no one seriously hurt.

The arguments will focus on the legality of the ban on travelers from six Muslim majority countries and any refugees.

President Donald Trump is defending his travel ban.

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.
