It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack or whether the assailant or assailants had been on the radar of British intelligence, as Mr. Trump suggested.

"As I have said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible", she said.

"We need to be smart, vigilant and tough".

The most recent attack before Friday was a van and knife attack on London Bridge in June.

In a flurry of early-morning tweets, Trump called the explosion another attack "by a loser terrorist" and suggested London police missed an opportunity to prevent it.

"We're losing a lot of people because of the internet", Trump said then.

An explosive device exploded on a London commuter train on Friday, injuring 22 people.

The terror threat level in Britain has been raised to critical, which means a further terrorist attack may be imminent.

Since then our players have to travel foreign countries all year, longing for that cheerful noise of a home crowd. Several thousand security officials, including armed soldiers, guarded the stadium and the team hotel.

"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.

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

"We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years.Must be proactive & nasty!" he tweeted.

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".

The official said that at this point, USA agencies had no information to back up any suggestion by Trump that Britain had advance warning or specific intelligence on the attack.

Scotland Yard also reportedly commented on Trump's tweet saying that it was "unhelpful and pure speculation".

The Trump administration's original policy called for a 90-day travel ban - which will be over in late September - and a 120-day refugee ban which will expire a month later.

The Trump administration and groups challenging the travel ban are preparing for a Supreme Court showdown on October 10 on whether the president had the authority to impose his executive order in the first place.
