Donald trump told to butt out after tweeting
BRITISH PM Theresa May took a swipe at Donald Trump after he claimed, before any details were released, that the Parsons Green bomber was known to police. The US President sparked a diplomatic spat after tweeting about the blast. He wrote yesterday: “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!” However, the Prime Minister hit back, saying: “I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation.” And the Metropolitan Police said: “This is a live investigation. We will provide updates as it progresses. Any further witness appeals will be issued in due course. Speculation is extremely unhelpful at this time.” Last night police had still refused to release any details about the bomb suspect, or to say whether they were known to security forces. Trump later said he was briefed on the blast, but it was not clear whether that was before his tweet. He added of the attack: “We have to be very smart, we have to be very, very tough, which perhaps we’re not nearly tough enough, but that is just an absolutely terrible thing. “In fact, I’m going to call the Prime Minister right now.” Downing Street confirmed the President called Mrs May “to offer his condolences”.
