British Prime Minister Theresa May might want to think twice about her recent condemnation of President Trump after British intelligence reportedly stopped an Islamic suicide plot to kill her.
Sky News Crime Correspondent Martin Brunt confirmed the news on Wednesday and stated that British cabinet ministers were briefed about the seriousness of the issue on Thursday:
It is in essence an extreme Islamist suicide plot against Downing Street. Essentially police believe that the plan was to launch some sort of improvised explosive device at Downing Street and in the ensuing chaos attack and kill Theresa May.
This is something which has been pursued over several weeks at least by Scotland Yard, MI5 and West Midlands Police.
It came to a head last week with the arrest of two men, by armed police, who were charged with preparing acts of terrorism.
The two men accused of the plot, Naa'imur Zakariyah Rahman and Mohammed Aqib Imran, appeared at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday morning, according to BBC News.
Prime Minister May has not released a response to the public in light of the foiled attacks -- but I wouldn’t either after, after having publicly criticized President Trump for exposing Islamic violence and then getting owned by his response.
.@Theresa_May, don’t focus on me, focus on the destructive Radical Islamic Terrorism that is taking place within the United Kingdom. We are doing just fine!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 30, 2017
