Donald Trump has slammed UK police over the explosion in Parsons Green this morning. 

The authorities are treating the explosion at the Tube station on Friday as a terrorist incident. 

The cause of the explosion on the District Line Train is reported to be a sort of white cannister, and while there were injuries with 18 people taken to hospital, no one was killed in the blast.

The US President, in his response on Twitter, turned his attention to UK police, claiming the people who committed the offence "were in the sights" of Scotland Yard:

A follow-up tweet saw Trump urge for terrorists to be cut off from the internet, their "main recruitment tool:"

At this point, no information pertaining to those responsible for the incident has been provided. 

It is not known if it was an individual, a group, or if they were known to the authorities.
