Donald Trump says travel ban should be 'larger, tougher and more specific'

Donald Trump says travel ban should be 'larger, tougher and more specific'

Similarly, May fumed to Trump after US media published leaked information about a British police investigation into the bombing of the Manchester Arena in May that killed 22 people.

There was no immediate claim of the attack and the authorities have given no details on possible suspects, but following some leads that attack was quickly labelled as a terrorist strike and security across the country was beefed up. "We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

President Donald Trump on Friday again called for the expansion of his travel ban in the wake of an overseas terror incident, railing against "loser terrorists" behind the London Tube explosion. "The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!", POTUS said in an another tweet.

At least 22 people were injured in London Friday morning when what police are describing as a crude device was exploded on a crowded commuter train.

"The attack was meant to cause significant harm, and 22 people have been injured and are being treated in hospital", May said while speaking to media.

"I never think it is helpful for anyone to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation", British Prime Minister Theresa May told reporters in London when asked about the president's comments.

Meanwhile, weighing in on the comments, former Conservative lawmaker Ben Howlett, called Trump's tweets "dangerous and inappropriate".

In response, a spokesperson for Khan said the mayor had "more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks".

"Must be proactive & nasty!" "Must be proactive", Trump said in a series of tweets. Along with advocating for a "larger, tougher" travel ban, the President also suggested shutting down the internet.

Under the order, foreign nationals are banned for 90 days from six countries - Iran, Syria, Sudan, Somalia, Libya, and Yemen - and refugees lacking a link to the USA are barred for 120 days. He criticized the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, for two days after a deadly knife and van attack in June.

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments to decide the travel ban's constitutionality in October.

Trump earlier this year signed an executive order blocking travelers from six majority-Muslim countries, including Syrian refugees.
