"Unhappy" British Prime Minister Blasts "Never Helpful" Trump Over Controversial Tweet

Tyler Durden's picture

Update 1: After hearing from her former chief of staff earlier, British Prime Minister Theresa May has also now weighed in on Trump's tweets from this morning which have largely been interpreted as a criticism of the UK's security services for failing to prevent today's terrorist attack in London.

"I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation."

Forward to the 2:25 mark for the relevant comments (or click here):

 

Meanwhile, according to Bloomberg, May relayed a similar message to President Trump directly after he called the Prime Minister earlier this morning to relay his condolences.

Theresa May complained directly to Donald Trump after the U.S. president said on Twitter that the people behind a Friday bombing in London were known to British police, according to a U.K. government official familiar with the conversation.

 

Trump called the British prime minister to offer his condolences over the attack on a subway train, which injured 22 people. May told the U.S. leader she was unhappy with his initial response, the official said on condition of anonymity.

 

This isn’t the first time May has protested to Trump. Earlier this year, the premier was in a political and diplomatic bind after U.S. media reported leaked details of a British police investigation into the Manchester bomb attack that killed 22 people.

* * *

Following this morning's "terrorist incident" in London (which we covered here), Trump tweeted out the following messages once again branding the attackers as "losers" and calling on governments around the world to be more "proactive."

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

 

"Loser terrorists must be dealt with in a much tougher manner.The internet is their main recruitment tool which we must cut off & use better!"

Of course, almost every Trump tweet manages to spark outrage among some group or another and these were no exception. 

As Bloomberg points out, British Prime Minister Theresa May's former chief of staff was among the first to share his 'outrage' over Trump's tweets which revealed that not only were the terrorists behind today's attacks "losers" but they were also under surveillance by "Scotland Yard."

"True or not - and I'm sure he doesn't know - this is so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner."

And former Conservative lawmaker Ben Howlett was quick to follow.

"It is highly unhelpful/dangerous and inappropriate for an ally to make announcements that share intelligence and undermine investigations."

Of course, it's unclear whether Trump's tweet was based on an official security breifing or a media clip from Fox News but it's better to launch a political attack first and ask questions later.

Seems most of these terror incidents involve people who were already on a list. Why not point that out? It's outrageous that the damned government watches everything that every citizen does and when they find a problem they drop the ball.

This is why "news" corporations REFUSE to identify race/ethnicity/religion when it's one of the special (read non-white, non-Christian) people committing crime/murder/mayhem. It is "unhelpful" to identify who did it and why. Because we might see that the special people aren't so special.

"Actually, our bombing the fuck out of their homes, schools, and hospitals is their main recruitment tool."

So that explains the Muslims bombing and slaughtering infidels in Indonesia and other places nowhere near the Middle East. Never mind that we aren't bombing the fuck out of them there. They now have an "excuse" for slaughtering people other then they are infidels. "Hey, somewhere around the globe a Muslim is being bombed. KILL ALL INFIDELS!!!"

Bullshit excuse for people who are raised to slaughter non-believers.

Yeah, yeah... down vote away, muzzie cock suckers.

Muslims are pieces of shit & have been that way since the 'religion' was founded by a child rapist war monger goat fucker.  Muslims have been at war with everyone who is not a fellow muslim for centuries at this point.  They need to be exterminated, the world would be much better off.

"So Unhelpful": why doesn't Trump take care of Global Warming.

Record-Setting Hurricanes; Record-Setting Wildfires; Record temperatures; The worst destruction of the citrus crop in Florida; ya think it might be global warming?

So, why is the global rise in temperatures so worrisome?

For one thing, as temperatures rise good farmland will become desert (e.g., dust-bowl conditions will probably return to the American Midwest).

Another major problem is sea-level rise.

Have a look at http://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/fs2-00/

The U.S. Geological Survey people claim that;

The Greenland ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 6.55 meters (21.5 feet),
the West Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 8.06 meters (26.4 feet),
the East Antarctica ice sheet melting will raise sea-level 64.8 meters (212.6 feet),
and all other ice melting will raise sea-level 0.91 meters (3 feet).

For a grand total of about 80 meters (263 feet).

So, what does an 80 meter (263 feet) rise in sea-level mean. Have a look at the following map of the world after an 80 meter rise. It means that over one billion people will have to be resettled to higher ground and that much of the most productive agricultural land will be under water. Fortunately, at current rates, the Greenland ice sheet will take over a thousand years to melt and the Antarctica ice sheet, much longer. However, the greater the temperature rise the faster the ice sheets will melt, bringing the problem much closer. Remember, the huge ice sheet that recently covered much of North America, almost completely melted in only 15,000 years (today, only the Greenland ice sheet, and some other small patches of it, remain). Since then (15,000 years ago), sea-levels have risen about 125 meters (410 feet), only 80 meters to go.

The ice sheets have been continuously melting for thousands of years. What is left of them today, is still melting, and will continue to melt. Human caused global warning will cause this remnant to melt significantly faster. This is a big, big, problem.

Global temperatures are increasing. And by quite a lot each year.

2016 is the hottest year on record for global temperatures.

This is 0.0380 degrees centigrade hotter than the previous record year which was 2015.

0.0380 is a large increase in just one year.

2015 was the hottest year (at that time) for global temperatures.

This was 0.1601 degrees hotter than the previous record year which was 2014.

0.1601 is an absolutely huge increase in just one year (at this rate temperatures would increase by 16 degrees in a century).

2014 was the hottest year (at that time) for global temperatures.

This was 0.0402 degrees hotter than the previous record year which was 2010.

The conspiracy to hide global warming data.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is given tax money to make global temperature records available to the public. However, certain people at NOAA continually sabotage this aspect of NOAA's mandate. For example, these people have (deliberately) sabotaged the web-page that delivers the temperature records.

Look for yourself:

Go to the page: https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/monitoring-references/faq/anomalies.php scroll down to the The Global Anomalies and Index Data section and click the download button and see what happens. Well, you get the message:

"Not Found. The requested URL /monitoring-references/faq/anomalies-download was not found on this server."

I guess that the 2017 data must be truly horrible if they have to hide it away.

It turns out that this seems to be the case; NASA reports that:

July 2017 had the hottest average land temperatures on record."So Unhelpful": why doesn't Trump take care of Global Warming.

Well, Where I live in SC, we have had one of the coolest Augusts that I can recall, and September, too.  My pool started cooling down about 3 weeks earlier than it should.  I could turn on the heater, but that would be contributing to global warming.

The climate has always changed since the beginning of earths existence. The claim that man has caused it in the last 200 years and that onerous economy killing taxation and  regulation or imposing the UNs wealth redistribution scheme is going to alter the natural forces that have moved continents, changed the composition of the atmosphere, created and destroyed rivers, lakes, coastlines, mountain ranges is ludicrous. If you personally believe that it is man made, then tell me about what you personally do to minimize your carbon foot print. You walk or ride a bike to work, you are off grid and use only solar and wind for you energy needs, and you grow your own food, right???? Or are you like the blithering limousine liberals who own multiple houses, travel with their entourages on their private jets to proclaim that everyone else needs to sacrifice their 1st world lifestyles.

Read history.  It lays out the historical pattern of the timeless conflict between Islam and the west. In religious war the womb becomes a weapons factory. Islam understands this.  That is why they offer the west the option to either convert or die. As each time before the west will finally recognize their options. Then the horrors will begin.

Bombing extremists home countries for 25 years, which finally forced them to vacate those countries in search of new bases of opperations (phillipines, Australia, EU and others). It is no suprise that these countries are seeing an increase of terrorism in their countries. You are trying to make a direct correlation to US/EU bombing should result in 'only' US/EU terrorism. That's clearly not the case. The extremists have spread to many countries and their direct efforts in those countries is to do what they do best, be extremist.
