MOSCOW (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump said that terrorists should be "cut off" from the Internet amid the terror attack at the Parsons Green metro station in the UK capital of London.
"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! Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!" Trump said on Twitter.

He added that the travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher amid the explosion in London, however, noting that it would "stupidly" not be considered to be "politically correct."

However, later in the day, Trump said the terrorist attack in London shows the important of taking a "very, very tough" posture on global extremism. He also announced that he would have a phone conversation with UK Prime Minister Theresa May after the attack in the London Underground.
Earlier in the day, an improvised explosive device detonated at the Parsons Green subway station in London. The explosion resulted in panic and a stampede in the morning rush hour; eighteen people were hospitalized for non-dangerous wounds. The police are treating the incident as a "terrorist incident."
Moreover, in late March, four people were killed and many were injured after a vehicle drove into a crowd on London’s Westminster Bridge near the UK Parliament building. One man was later shot by police after he stabbed an officer inside the Parliament compound.
