Trump terror tweets ‘not helpful’, says PM May
London: Prime Minister Theresa May has rebuked US President Donald Trump for suggesting suspects in Friday’s London train blast were known to police.
“I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation,” she said.
In a tweet, Mr Trump described the attackers as “loser terrorists” and “sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard”.
The bomb rocked a London Underground train, injuring 29 people.
In a phone call with Mrs May on Friday, Mr Trump “pledged to continue close collaboration with the United Kingdom to stop attacks worldwide targeting innocent civilians and to combat extremism”, the White House said.
A Downing Street spokesperson said he also offered “his condolences over this morning’s cowardly attack in London”, which he described to reporters earlier as “a terrible thing”.
