President Trump on Friday called the London subway bombing "a bad thing" and repeated his call a tougher travel ban to keep terrorists out of the U.S.
A blast went off on a train in Parsons Green station in west London on Friday morning, and it was later reported that the blast was heard as a result of a detonated bomb that had been placed on the train in what British police later confirmed was a "terrorist incident".
Just hours after the attack, Trump tweeted the subway bombing was done by "another loser terrorist".
At the time Trump sent the tweets, no suspects had been arrested in connection to the incident, despite the president mentioned "people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard". "The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!" he wrote on Twitter.
Asked about Trump's comments after an emergency Cobra meeting this afternoon, May said: "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation".
He said: 'The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!'
There was talk earlier this year of suspending transatlantic security briefings after details of the investigation into the bombing of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, northern England, which killed 22 people, were leaked to the media by US authorities.

It's unclear, though, what will be left for the court to decide.
The travel ban bars certain people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US. The administration has yet to say whether it will seek to renew the bans, make them permanent or expand the travel ban to other countries.
