President Donald Trump first responded to Saturday’s tragic London terror attack with an encouraging tweet.
In the tweet, Trump called for all Americans to be “vigilant and tough” in the wake of such a brutal terrorist attack.
We need to be smart, vigilant and tough. We need the courts to give us back our rights. We need the Travel Ban as an extra level of safety!

Liberals immediately started criticizing Trump, calling him insensitive and bashed him for saying that his travel ban was necessary.
The next day, Trump slammed his critics for their political correctness in the following tweet:
We must stop being politically correct and get down to the business of security for our people. If we don't get smart it will only get worse

Conservative Tribune reports:
Trump wasn’t the only world leader making a strong statement after the attack. U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May promised that she would defeat “the single, evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division, and promotes sectarianism,” saying that it was responsible for the two recent terror attacks in London and one in Manchester.
“It will only be defeated when we turn people’s minds away from this violence — and make them understand that our values — pluralistic, British values — are superior to anything offered by the preachers and supporters of hate,” May said Sunday, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
This is clearly a lot different from the messages we’re used to after these attacks. One hopes that both Trump and May keep pushing them. In Trump’s case, I don’t think that it’s going to be that difficult, especially since he’s been doing it since the beginning of the presidential campaign.
