Trump again seizes on terror incident to call for travel ban

"We must be vigilant and united in our efforts to expunge these diabolical enemies", said Pittenger, who serves as the vice chairman of the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Terrorism and Illicit Finance, and chairman of the Congressional Task Force on Terrorism.

The country's threat level was raised to "critical" after Friday's attack. 22 people were treated for injuries, with reportedly none of them life-threatening.

The authorities immediately beefed up security around the London Underground, as the investigation into who was behind the bombing continues.

He attacked his predecessor, claiming Obama's campaign against the Islamic State militant group was slow and ineffective. The train was an eastbound District Line train from Wimbledon.

Mrs May said it was not helpful to speculate on an ongoing investigation in the latest sign of discord between the traditional allies linked to anti-terror investigations.

Trump was tweeting after a homemade bomb exploded on a packed London subway train during rush hour on Friday. "Must be proactive!" the president tweeted Friday morning.

This isn't the first time Trump has chimed in quickly after a terrorist attack in Britain since coming into office.

In his next post, Trump seemingly called for the internet - "their main recruitment tool" - to be "cut off".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, meanwhile, said he's been too focused on working with the appropriate authorities and agencies in the wake of the blast to give Twitter a look. The incident left 18 people injured but no one seriously hurt.

Speaking to the Independent on Friday, a Metropolitan Police spokesperson dismissed Trump's tweet, calling it "speculation".

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

And May's former chief of staff Nick Timothy quickly backed her up, saying he was sure Trump had no idea about whether United Kingdom security forces knew the identity of the attacker or attackers.

May protested to Trump after USA officials leaked information about a deadly bombing in Manchester in May. "So I think didn't mean anything beyond that".

France is America's oldest and closest ally.

Trump has lobbed trans-Atlantic criticism after previous attacks. The previous four killed 36 people, and police said six other significant plots, soon to be prosecuted, were thwarted before they occurred.

Trump made the comment after tweeting about a reported explosion and fire on a subway train in London that police say was a terrorist incident. He added, "Must be proactive & nasty!"
