So, as Frankie's mower roared into life, Mr Trump turned and strode to the Oval Office to - he said - place a call to Theresa May. and perhaps try to fix some of that damage.

Trump called the British prime minister to offer his condolences over the attack on a subway train, which injured 22 people. "Must be proactive!" he tweeted.

"Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner".

May spoke after chairing the COBRA committee meeting and condemned the terror attack, she said that the United Kingdom terror threat level will stay at "severe" however, it will be kept under review.

"We are chasing down suspects", said Britain's top counter-terrorism officer, Mark Rowley.

"Our thoughts go out to all of those injured in the attack on a train at Parsons Green Station this morning", said Jonathan Arkush - the president of the Board of Deputies of British Jews - in a statement.

The whole event was a little surreal: the President had gone outside to watch an 11-year-old called Frankie Giaccio mow the lawn (Frankie had written to the White House asking if he could) and ended up talking worldwide affairs.

Trump told reporters Friday morning that he had been briefed on the explosion and said he planned to call May.

Diplomacy is an art that the American president still can not handle. It's unclear what role authorities believe he may have had in the incident.

Donald Trump said Friday after the latest terror attack in London that his controversial six-nation travel ban should be broadened and made 'tougher'.

Others chimed in, with May's former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, saying Trump's comment was "so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner". "As London has proven, again and again, we will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism", he said.

This is the fifth terror attack in Britain this year.

"For years, Scotland Yard has been a leader, as our Federal Bureau of Investigation has been a leader", McMaster said, conciliatorily.

"I do not think it is helpful for anybody to speculate in an ongoing investigation".

Trump, addressing reporters briefly on camera, called the attack "an absolutely awful thing". After two terror attacks in the city in June, Trump seized on the moment. "We have to be tougher and we have to be smarter".

"We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!"

The same court ruled that refugees accepted by a resettlement agency should be allowed to sidestep the White House's broad ban, opening the door for as many as 24,000 refugees to enter the country before the end of October. "People may see that on their travels", said Cuomo.
