“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!” he wrote.

The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May, in an interview following an emergency cabinet meeting, was asked about Trump’s tweets.

“I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation,” May said.

In his first on-camera remarks today, Trump called the attack “an absolutely terrible thing.”

“I’m going to call the prime minister right now,” Trump said.

“We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter,” he said.
