DONALD Trump has lashed out at terrorists after the Parsons Green tube bombing – calling them "sick and demented".
The US President took aim at jihadis and seemed to imply the bombing of the London Underground train – which injured 22 – could have been prevented by British authorities.
He called for “proactive and nasty” action to tackle terrorism, before boasting about his record on ISIS compared to his predecessor Barack Obama.
Detectives are hunting an unknown bomber after the improvised device was detonated on a rush hour train at 8.20am.
Witnesses reported seeing a “wall of fire”, but experts believe the bomb failed to fully detonate – and could have been much more deadly.
Trump tweeted: "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.
"Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner. The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off and use better."
He added: "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive and nasty.”
Met Police confirmed the bomb was a “terrorist incident" and a manhunt has now been launched to track down the culprit and any accomplices.
The blast appears to have originated from awhite bucket in a Lidl bag which has wires protruding from it which was found in the rear carriage.
Prime Minister Theresa May is to chair a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergencies committee this afternoon to discuss the incident.
People were hurt in a stampede to exit the station following the blast, which comes after Britain has suffered under a wave of terrorist attacks.
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has appealed for calm, saying London "will never be intimidated or defeated by terrorism”.
The UK remains under a “severe” terror threat – meaning an attack is “highly likely”.
