British PM Complained To Trump About Terror Tweets

Bloomberg reports:

Theresa May complained directly to Donald Trump after the U.S. president said on Twitter that the people behind a Friday bombing in London were known to British police, according to a U.K. government official familiar with the conversation.

Trump called the British prime minister to offer his condolences over the attack on a subway train, which injured 22 people. May told the U.S. leader she was unhappy with his initial response, the official said on condition of anonymity.

This isn鈥檛 the first time May has protested to Trump. Earlier this year, the premier was in a political and diplomatic bind after U.S. media reported leaked details of a British police investigation into the Manchester bomb attack that killed 22 people.

          Don’t blame the Bernie Bros. I’m a “Bro” and I voted for Hilary. She had a milquetoast/more-of-the-same platform. Things might have went differently had she adopted a more aggressive stance.

            Things WOULD have gone differently if the Russians hadn’t fucked with our election.

          Seriously, are we still beating that drum? The fact that Clinton can’t own her failure just proves what a mistake it was for her to run. She failed to thrash the most thrashable candidate in recent history — choosing to publicly disparage his supporters before they voted, choosing not to visit the voters who would tip the balance, and embracing tired machine politics that nobody wanted. I don’t no doubt most Bernie supporters voted for her anyway, but it wasn’t enough to reverse the damage.

          The problem with unexceptional people at the center of a political dynasty is that they come to believe their entourage is representative of the electorate, and that there’s no urgency to connect with citizens. Trump connected with enough voters to swing the election. Clinton didn’t, and apparently didn’t think she needed to.

    This is why we can’t have nice things…such as shared intelligence or good relations with our allies. Ol’ President Chatty Cathy just keeps ruining it for everyone….especially when she shares everything with her boyfriend, Vlad.

    Why would any leader share information with this gasbag? He can’t keep a secret and will use the information to bolster his personal image, eroding the credibility of the US, and sometimes endangering the lives of others in the US and other countries.

      It’s an ego thing with him. He wants to show off that he’s “in the know,” which is ironic considering he’s a know-nothing incapable of following complex issues and “thinks” in bullet points.

      I bet he’s a YUUUUGE gossip, all of it critical of others. “So I says to Myrtle, I says…”

      • Todd20036

        Pence will probably go down with Trump. He’s seriously involved in this, and Trump won’t let anyone else get away if he himself does not.

        • MonochromeMouse

          The second he’s put under any real pressure trump is going to snitch on everybody for every tiny little thing they have ever done just to try and save his own ass.

    British Intelligence could always show how much the appreciate what Donald did by working with Mueller

    • coram nobis

      They’ve already suspended, albeit temporarily, sharing intel-sharing with the US, in the wake of the Manchester bombing and the subsequent US leak. Severing intel-sharing, of course, may not be good if there’s some plot headed toward the US. And, yes, if they have something to show Robert Mueller, say, money-laundering in the City of London, or something to do with the Scotland golf resort, then it’s their option.

      Or maybe the intel is just something Donald made up, or something he saw on Fox. And like gossip, it can inflame things, or in this case, speculate about perpetrators in a way that may prejudice the investigation or predispose witnesses — and, at the same time, suggest the police were either negligent or complicit.

    Immigrant #4: America doesn’t have maternity leave or universal healthcare. They don’t even care if their own citizens die.

    Immigrant #5: I have skills American corporations want but other countries’ corporations want them too.

      Evil Facebook is taking note. Friday’s announcement in Montreal.

      The [Facebook artificial intelligence] lab is expected to employ 10 researchers by the end of the month, and grow to 30 people within a year. The company said it eventually plans to invest more than $7 million in the lab.

      [Mike] Schroepfer [Facebook CTO] said Facebook was attracted to the city鈥檚 AI 鈥渆cosystem鈥 鈥 the network of universities and companies already established in the area, along with government support for AI research in general 鈥 and the fact some of the world鈥檚 leading AI researchers are already here.
