He took a lot of flack for accusing them of not being proactive but it turns out they had warnings about this.

Trump was right again.

Trump was right that Scotland Yard knew about terror suspect(s).

A
teenager suspected of being the Parsons Green bomber had been spoken to by police a number of times, neighbours of his foster family claimed today, amid questions over what authorities knew.*

The 18-year-old refugee, believed to be Iraqi,*was a "problem" to foster parents Penny and Ron Jones and they had been contacting officials saying that they were unable to cope, it was said. *

Neighbours of their house in Sunbury-on-Thames, south west London, said that he had been brought home by officers just two weeks before the attack and they regularly saw plain clothes officers at the property.*

What could the police in the U.K. done? They also have due process of law.

This bomber was not subject to arrest merely on the grounds that he was annoying his foster parents and neighbors.

I don't know, tracked him more closely, put people on alert, gave him an evaluation to see if he was mentally ill?

There could be a million people on the UK watchlist, Spooky.

Surveiling all of them would be prohibitively expensive.
Well I don't know their system so can't really comment on what they could have done more.

But Trump was right that they knew there was a threat here.

Maybe some Brits could chime in on this.
