Trump seizes on London attack to push domestic crackdown: President Donald Trump seized on the London terror attack to demand the US ban on travelers from some Muslim countries be reinstated Monday, sparking a diplomatic row with Britain and jeopardizing his legal defense of the measure in the process.

The "special relationship" with Britain became the latest casualty of that hardline stance Monday.
