Trump Tweet on London Police Draws UK Rebuke

Internet must be 'cut off' to stop further terror attacks: Trump

Internet must be 'cut off' to stop further terror attacks: Trump

Nick Timothy, UK Prime Minister Theresa May's former chief of staff, isn't impressed with Donald Trump's response to the London tube attack on Friday. The US president has in the past been accused of reacting to suspected terrorist incidents before the facts are fully known. So far there have been no arrests.

In this aerial image made from video, police officers work at the Parsons Green Underground Station after an explosion in London Friday, Sept. 15, 2017. That outrageous attack on the First Amendment drew the anger and ire of many on Twitter, including many in the media, who responded by tweeting, "Donald Trump is a white supremacist".

That followed other tweets the president made on the attacks where he called the terrorists losers.

He immediately says the attackers were "within the sights of Scotland Yard", suggesting that the United Kingdom police knew who they were in advance but failed to intervene.

Similarly, London-based CNN correspondent Charles Riley retweeted Trump's Scotland Yard tweet, commenting, "London's Metropolitan Police have described this tweet as "pure speculation" and 'unhelpful.'" Score one for Scotland Yard.

May said it's not helpful when anyone speculates during an ongoing investigation.

Also, seven people were admitted to the nearby hospital while eleven other students are rescued from the fire accident. He said they found a pile of bodies in the right corner of the dorm and another pile in the left corner.

In his next post, Trump seemingly called for the internet - "their main recruitment tool" - to be "cut off". Somebody will say, 'Oh freedom of speech, freedom of speech.' These are foolish people.

The latest version of his travel ban, initially announced in a botched late-January rollout, calls for a ban on people entering the USA from a short list of terror-prone countries that are also Muslim-majority nations. The news organization reports it remains unclear if the Trump Administration will look to renew the travel bans.

It is far from the first time that Mr Trump has asked for the internet to be shut down because of terror.

He also tied his demand for a more robust travel ban to an unusual claim that Scotland Yard was familiar with Friday's bombers ahead of time and missed the chance to catch them before he launched the attack.

Trump has frequently used terrorist attacks to promote his ban, the formal title of which is "Executive Order Protecting The Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into The United States".

On Monday, Trump's administration scored a key legal victory related to his travel ban when the Supreme Court granted a temporary stay of the ban's effect on a group of around 24,000 refugees. "As London has proven again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism", he said.
