Donald Trump indirectly took advantage of the recent attack in London to promote his proposed travel ban that blocks tourists from six Muslim-dominated countries from entering the United States. The American leader signed the first executive order after he assumed the office in January, while the second executive order was approved in March. The revised travel ban excluded Iraq from the list of countries covered by the 90-day ban.

Just last month, a federal appeals court made an appeal to block the president's revised travel ban. Right after the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled to counter proposal, Trump's administration guaranteed to make an appeal to the Supreme Court to review the case.

'An extra level of safety'

On Saturday night, Trump took to Twitter to explain the need to approve his proposed travel ban. The US leader said the people "need to smart, vigilant and though" and that the public needs his travel ban which he said will serve as "an extra level safety" to them.

The POTUS wrote this even before the recent attacks in London were confirmed an act of terrorism. Six people have been killed, while at least 30 individuals suffered from injuries after the incidents in London Bridge and Borough Market. Reports stated police authorities have taken down three suspected attackers during the encounter.

Sources said the attack started when pedestrians near London Bridge were run over by a white van at around 10:08 p.m.

Authorities added the van continued on to Borough Market where the perpetrators reportedly stabbed several people at the scene.

After his "travel ban" post, Trump addressed the tragic incident in London and assured that the US is ready to help London and the UK.

Exploiting the situation

Cecillia Wang slammed the US president for touting his proposed travel ban in the wake of London terrorism.

The American Civil Liberties Union deputy legal director said the public should be "outraged" after the US president took advantage of the current situation in London for his own advantage.

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Grimes, on the other hand, said the POTUS was only adding fuel to the fire with his remarks, referring to Trump's earlier claims that the attacks in London were acts of terrorism before the police authorities could even release their official findings of the incident.

But according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer, it was confirmed to Trump that the incidents were acts of terrorism before the US president tweeted about the incident.
