US President Donald Trump took to Twitter Friday in order to condemn the terror attack in West London in a series of tweets, urging that "loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".

"As I said, the police and security services have been working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible", May commented on Trump's tweet.

Earlier Friday, Trump posted several tweets about both the terror attack and the ongoing efforts to thwart terrorism.

Meanwhile, the USA president on Friday claimed his administration had "made more progress in the last nine months" against the Daesh (ISIL) terrorist group than his predecessor, Barack Obama.

May added that the Improvised Explosive Device was "intended to cause significant harm" as the District line train was packed during the rush hour.

Lewis Herrington, a terrorism expert at Loughborough University, said that would set it apart from suicide attacks like those on the London subway in 2005 or at Manchester Arena in May, in which the attackers "all wanted to die".

"This is a proportionate and sensible step which will provide extra reassurance and protection while the investigation progresses", she said.

His tweets tend to be aimed at his base, bolstering his image as tough on immigration and terrorism and with little thought to the wider world.
