An explosion at the Parsons Green underground train station during rush hour in London is being investigated as a terror incident. U.S. President Donald Trump quickly reacted to the attack, tweeting that a “loser terrorist” is to blame. He also used it as another opportunity to push for tougher treatment of terrorists.

“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,” the president wrote. “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!”

Trump then tweeted about his controversial travel ban. “The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct,” he wrote. “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!”

The BBC reports that the blast happened at about 8:20 BST at the Parsons Green station. Pictures on social media show the “improvised explosive device” in a shopping bag, with wires trailing from it, on the Tube train’s floor. The London Ambulance Service said 18 patients were taken to a nearby hospital.
