“I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation,” May said in response to US President Donald Trump’s claim that the terrorists “were in the sights of Scotland Yard.” Meanwhile, it was reported that Trump and May spoke over the phone today about the terror attack that injured 22 people.
Earlier today, Trump took to Twitter in order to condemn the terror attack in a series of tweets. “Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner,” he wrote. “The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!”
“We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years,” Trump wrote in another tweet. “Must be proactive & nasty!”
