President Trump called for the U.S. to be "tough and nasty" with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) on Friday hours after a terror attack occurred in a London train station. 

"We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years. Must be proactive & nasty!" Trump said on Twitter.  

The president's tweets come after an explosion rocked London's Parsons Green underground station, injuring numerous people. 

The incident is being treated as a terror attack by British authorities and is currently under investigation.

Trump called for the tougher vetting of immigrants on Twitter after the attack took place.

"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!" Trump continued in a subsequent tweet.

"The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!"

Trump's tweets come after the Supreme Court agreed late Tuesday to lift restrictions on his travel ban until further notice, allowing the administration to continue barring most refugees from resettling in the country.
