What is being said about the incident

President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted that the attack on London was perpetrated by a "loser terrorist."

"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!" he wrote.

He added, "Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"

According to the United Kingdom's Telegraph, British Prime Minister Theresa May said, "I never think it is helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation. As I have just said the police and security services are working to discover the full circumstances of this cowardly attack and to identify all those responsible."
