Trump Right: London Bomber Known to Police

Written by Joe Scudder

Donald Trump was right about the London bomber whether he had inside knowledge or was guessing.

Referring to British security, Donald Trump claimed the London bomber was “in their sights.” It turns out that he was one hundred percent correct. Did he have inside knowledge? Perhaps. But if it was a lucky guess, Trump knew the odds were in his favor.

I disagree with the President on some things, but he is trying to champion a new level of security that is being resisted by the deep state on both sides of the Atlantic. These obvious failures give him an opportunity to remind voters that he offers a clear alternative. The deep state, in telling Trump to shut up, is ordering us to meekly accept what level of defense they deem reasonable and appropriate.

I’m with Team Trump, and I hope he trolls the government of every country that permits a terrorist attack.

How about you?

The Daily Mail reports, “Second ‘bomber’ is arrested by terror police as it’s revealed first suspect is ‘Iraqi refugee whose parents died’ and who WAS known to police.

Police are searching a house directly opposite Heathrow airport after a second man was arrested in connection with the Parsons Green terror attack – as it also emerged police allowed the first suspect to slip through their fingers just a fortnight earlier.

A 21-year-old was apprehended in the London borough of Hounslow on Saturday night, amid fears a terror cell was planning a fresh attack on the country.

It came just hours after officers swooped the Port of Dover and arrested an 18-year-old, believed to be an Iraqi refugee who was allegedly arrested two weeks ago at the same tube station where the device exploded on Friday, but was allowed to walk free.

The teenager – who is being held after police tracked him to the departures hall of the coastal town’s port – is thought to have been a ‘problematic foster child’ who was raised in Sunbury-on-Thames, Surrey, by Penelope Jones, 71, and husband Ronald, 88.

The couple’s home was raided by armed officers on Saturday and a neighbour claiming a bomb was found, although Scotland Yard quashed reports that 15 firearms’ were seized, a neighbour claimed.

Residents on the street said officers had been in the area since Friday night with one neighbour saying: ‘I only had to open the door and I saw police everywhere.’

A local councillor said the teenage suspect came to the UK aged 15 after his parents died in Iraq while a friend of the Joneses said the man’s biological family did not agree with him moving in with Christian foster parents.
