President Donald Trump issued a series of tweets, following the chaos that ensued after a terrorist bomb detonated in London’s underground railway. Some 22 persons were injured, although there were no life-threatening injuries. However, survivors streamed out of Parsons Green station in London, running for their lives after a bomb partially detonated on a commuter train on Friday morning. A 10-year-old school boy received the worst injuries and was hospitalized. Other people suffered serious burns and are also hospitalized.

In one tweet, Trump called on security services: “Must be proactive!” He also denounced the “loser” terrorist of the Parsons Green bombing was already known to Scotland Yard. He called the terrorists responsible “sick and demented people” in response to the attack that left 22 people hospitalized in west London.

Trump tweeted: “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!” He branded the internet as a principal recruitment tool for fanatics. He tweeted: “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!” A manhunt is now underway by British police to uncover the responsible parties. Police are treating the blast as a terrorist incident. Commuters saw a "fireball flying down a carriage" as the bomb, hidden in an insulated Lidl bag, partially detonated inside the carriage. This is the fifth terrorist attack this year in the UK.
