President Trump wasted no time this morning reacting to the horrific news from London.
In one of this first tweets of the day, he said that:
"Another attack in London by a loser terrorist. These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!"
Trump also reminded everyone this once again proves that a travel ban is needed now more than ever, adding: "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"
Meanwhile in London, police are still hunting for the 'bucket bomber' as he is now called who tried to blow up a rush hour tube train this morning in London. The terror suspect is supposed to be armed with knives and security forces have sealed off the area as there might be other bombs.
The bomb on the train had a timer and was clearly home-made. It was stuck in a plastic bucket with a bag from supermarket Lidl around it.
Meanwhile the Metropolitan Police Department of the city of London have confirmed that the attack is being treated as a ‘counter-terrorist related incident’.
the Mayor of London, Mr Sadiq Khan announced that "a manhunt is underway" as both bomb squads and counterterrorism forces swarmed on the scene.
Mr Khan added that: "The person or people responsible for this attack will be caught and will be brought for justice."
