ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump called British Prime Minister Theresa May a "wonderful woman" and said he relayed his "deepest sympathies" following the terror attack in London. His remarks come after May said on Friday it was not helpful for anyone to speculate on investigations after Trump tweeted that the culprits behind a train bombing had been "in the sights" of the police. Soon after 22 people were injured in the attack on a busy underground train in west London, Trump tweeted: "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!" His comments appeared to point the finger at British police. Asked whether Trump knew something Britain did not, May said: "I never think it's helpful for anybody to speculate on what is an ongoing investigation". Others chimed in, with May's former chief of staff, Nick Timothy, saying Trump's comment was "so unhelpful from leader of our ally and intelligence partner".
