Buzzfeed News reports:
The Metropolitan police has called Donald Trump’s comments on the Parsons Green explosion “pure speculation” and “unhelpful” after the US president posted a series of tweets following the terror incident in west London.
“Anyone with information relating to the investigation should contact the counter-terrorism hotline,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. Trump had tweeted to say the attack was carried out by a “loser”, and seemed to suggest that those responsible were on the radar of Scotland Yard.
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!

True or not – and I’m sure he doesn’t know – this is so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner. https://t.co/ZndrTXFrAX
