Donald Trump said Friday after the latest terror attack in London that his controversial six-nation travel ban should be broadened and made ‘tougher.’

The latest version of his travel ban, initially announced in a botched late-January rollout, calls for a ban on people entering the U.S. from a short list of terror-prone countries that are also Muslim-majority nations.

It also bars the entry of most refugees from anywhere in the world.

‘The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific – but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!’ Trump tweeted Friday.

The president weighed in as police in and around London carried out a manhunt for the person or persons who set off a crude incendiary bomb on a subway car during Friday’s morning rush hour.

He also tied his demand for a more robust travel ban to an unusual claim that Scotland Yard was familiar with Friday’s bombers ahead of time and missed the chance to catch them before he launched the attack.

‘Another attack in London by a loser terrorist,’ Trump tweeted. ‘These are sick and demented people who were in the sights of Scotland Yard. Must be proactive!’

The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear oral arguments to decide the travel ban’s constitutionality in October.
But the high court justices allowed the ban to go into effect last month while the case is pending.

Federal court challenges have resulted in exceptions being made for travelers who already have established ties to the U.S., including a broad definition of what counts as a ‘bona fide’ close family member.
