U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and London Mayor Sadiq Khan were quick to slam President Donald Trump’s response to Friday’s terror attack at a London tube station.

In a Friday morning Twitter rant, Trump speculated heavily about the perpetrators of a bomb attack that left at least 22 people injured. He referenced the so-called Islamic State, despite there being very little confirmed information about the bombing. He also used the incident as an excuse to push his U.S. travel ban on citizens from six Muslim-majority countries.

“I never think it’s helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation,” May said on Friday.

“I’ve simply been too busy this morning to look at Twitter,” Khan said in response to a question by a British radio station about Trump’s tweets. “I’m not going to go there. My priority today is catch the individual or individuals responsible.”

“I’m hopefully the last person who’s speculating about these sort of things,” he added.

A police spokesperson told CNN that Trump’s comments on Scotland Yard were “pure speculation” and “unhelpful.”

WHAT ELSE IS HAPPENING?

Nancy Pelosi will not let the White House mansplain to her. The House minority leader reportedly told the men at the table to zip it during her dinner with Trump.

Trump went after ESPN’s Jemele Hill after she called him a white supremacist, calling on her to “apologize for untruth.” White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has also attacked the ESPN host.

Harvard rescinded its invitation to Chelsea Manning to be a visiting fellow. The university’s decision to withdraw the fellowship invitation followed a day of public pressure.
