A bomb partially exploded on a London train during the morning rush hour on Friday, injuring 30 people and prompting the government to raise the country's terrorism threat level to "critical".

Prime Minister May said the public should not be alarmed by armed officers on the streets, a rare sight in Britain.

Officials said the attack could have been deadly.

Mr. Trump also tweeted that his administration had already "made more progress" against the Islamic State than President Barack Obama's administration had in eight years.

And a police spokesperson told CNN that Trump's comment is "pure speculation given we don't know who involved". He also attacked London Mayor Sadiq Khan's response to the attack, prompting Khan to call on United Kingdom officials to cancel the president's upcoming visit.

"I spoke with a wonderful woman, British Prime Minster Theresa May, this morning and relayed America's deepest sympathy as well as our absolute commitment to eradicate the terrorists from our planet", Trump said.

In fact, the biggest concern for the Buckeyes' defense may not be the Sooners' wide receivers, but their playmaking tight ends. When the dust had settled, they had recorded five sacks and two interceptions. " They got us a year ago , " Mayfield said.

Trump made the comment after tweeting about a reported explosion and fire on a subway train in London that police say was a terrorist incident.

Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday that the travel ban should be "far larger, tougher and more specific". "It keeps going and going, and we have to be very smart and we have to be very, very tough perhaps we're not almost tough enough", Trump told reporters in the Rose Garden of the White House.

It was not immediately clear if the people behind the bomb attack on Friday were indeed previously known to British law enforcement.

As for the travel ban, A.P. notes that remains tangled in the court systems with the Supreme Court scheduled to listen to arguments on October 10.

Trump's top national security aide said that Trump was simply noting British law enforcement is keeping an eye on terrorist groups seeking to carry out attacks on its soil. We need the courts to give us back our rights.

The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. The news organization reports it remains unclear if the Trump Administration will look to renew the travel bans. His post comes ahead of a key Supreme Court hearing next month on the constitutionality of his executive order on the ban.
