WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump says the United States must be "proactive" and "nasty" against the Islamic State group.

On Twitter Friday Trump says: "We have made more progress in the last nine months against ISIS than the Obama Administration has made in 8 years." He adds: "Must be proactive & nasty!"

Trump was tweeting after a homemade bomb exploded on a packed London subway train during rush hour on Friday. The incident left 18 people injured but no one seriously hurt. Police said the explosion was a terrorist attack, the fifth in Britain this year.

Trump is using the incident to defend his travel ban against six Muslim-majority countries. As a candidate, Trump often pledged to "bomb the hell out of ISIS" and vowed to enact a Muslim ban.
