President Trump weighed-in on the United Kingdom’s latest “terror incident” in the heart of London Tuesday, saying these “crazy animals” must be dealt with “through toughness and strength” after a lone attacker slammed a car into pedestrians outside of Parliament.
The Commander-in-Chief’s comments come just hours after the sudden attack in the UK capital, when an unidentified man plowed into bicyclists and tourists injuring at least three people.
“Another terrorist attack in London…These animals are crazy and must be dealt with through toughness and strength!” Trump tweeted.

Metropolitan police confirmed the incident was being treated as an act of “terrorism,” adding the individual has so-far refused to cooperate with investigators.
BRITAIN ON EDGE: UK Warns of 'SEVERE' RISK of Potential Terror Attack
Authorities in the United Kingdom warned residents Monday of an “increased” risk of terror attacks launched by Islamic militants against the UK within the next two years, saying the threat remains at a “heightened level.”
A spokesperson for the Interior Ministry issued the stark assessment on the first anniversary of a brutal attack in London that left eight people dead; saying the current threat level of “severe” will remain for the next two years and could possibly escalate to “critical” in the coming months.
“In summary we expect the threat from Islamist terrorism to remain at its current, heightened level for at least the next two years, and that it may increase further,” the ministry said in a statement.
“The threat from terrorism is constantly evolving. Globally, terrorist groups and networks of all ideologies continue to develop organically, exploiting social media, technology and science to further their aims and ambitions,” the ministry added.
“The government is absolutely committed to doing everything possible to tackle the terrorist threat. It is my first priority every day in this job,” said Interior Minister Sajid Javid.

ISIS THREAT: Islamic State Vows to ‘KILL THEM ALL’ at 2018 World Cup
The Islamic State threatened to launch massive attacks against the international World Cup soccer competition Friday; vowing to “kill them all” during the upcoming global tournament in Russia.
The terror organization released its newest threat through its French-language based media wing; showing a picture of a bloody knife severing the World Cup 2018 logo under the banner “Kill them all.”
According to the Daily Mail, the threat is likely a direct response to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s staunch support of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, who has waged an ongoing war against ISIS for over six years.
The terror group has been releasing propaganda pictures for months; vowing to strike the World Cup’s audience as well as sports stars from across the globe.
The disturbing image is similar to a recent ISIS photo depicting a lone-attacker stalking the New York City subway system, saying Americans “won’t know” when and where the next attack will occur.
