Trump says to call UK's May on Friday following train blast

US President Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday in order to condemn the terror attack in West London in a series of tweets, urging that "loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".

Asked about a Friday morning tweet in which Trump said the USA ban on travelers from certain countries should be more "specific", Trump said: "We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

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

Trump concluded: "Must be proactive & nasty!" "It just keeps going and going", and suggested that the USA may not be tough enough on terror.

Trump mischaracterized remarks Khan had made by suggesting the mayor had said there was "no reason to be alarmed" about the attack itself.

The tweet came after another message in which he appeared to suggest that the attacker had been known to police, despite Scotland Yard not having said so.

He also took the opportunity of Friday morning's incident to call for a stricter travel ban - one that has been staunchly opposed by the tech industry.

Again calling for the implementation of a travel ban in United States, Trump tweeted, "The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

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

The whole event was a little surreal: the President had gone outside to watch an 11-year-old called Frankie Giaccio mow the lawn (Frankie had written to the White House asking if he could) and ended up talking worldwide affairs.

Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for the explosion in which 29 people were hurt after an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) blasted on a Tube train at the Parsons Green Station.

"I'm going to call the prime minister right now", Trump said.

Scotland Yard also dismissed the Trump's claims.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments to decide the travel ban's constitutionality in October. He and his son Donald Trump Jr both mocked Sadiq Khan after taking the mayor's words of reassurance to Londoners out of context.

Trump has repeatedly pointed to his travel ban as a cornerstone of his counterterrorism platform.
