Trump Tweets About Parsons Green Bombing - And Some Hackles Are Raisedby

US President Donald Trump is, of course, the most famous tweeter on the planet. Gone are the simpler days of Stephen Fry and Lady Gaga courting followers – Trump has actively used his social media account to give his take on various movements in the White House and in the world at large. It’s behavior which hasn’t necessarily gone down well even with his fellow Republicans – but you can bet that the President’s Twitter feed will be the first place you’ll get a stack of information from if you need to know what the Commander in Chief is thinking.

The Parsons Green bombing – where around 20 people at the time of writing were injured by a bomb explosion on the London Underground – has captured much of the world news going into the weekend, with it being the latest of several reported terrorist attacks on UK soil, and one of many that the capital has been on the receiving end of. Kind words poured in across the globe – and President Trump, too, weighed in on the disaster – but not necessarily in a manner that may have been too helpful.

‘Another attack in London by a loser terrorist’, tweeted Trump. ‘These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!’ These words have been interpreted by some to not only be critical of the work undertaken by British services, but also to suggest that they were already aware of the potential for an attack – a suggestion which has been condemned by some British representatives. Some sources report that Prime Minister Theresa May has been in direct contact with the President following the remarks – and as the Daily Mail advised British MPs in touch with their team asserted that undermining of intelligence-sharing should be avoided at all costs.

It is not the first time that US involvement in intelligence sharing has sparked outrage, as it was thought that some US media outlets had access to certain information on the Manchester Arena attack earlier this year. Trump’s take on events are nothing new for the statesman – he is famously protective of his own country and has continued to offer support to the UK amidst previous tragedies – but his most recent tweets on the matter, at least a select few, may not have gone down too well with some of those supporting British services.
