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’t 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.
