LONDON, Nov 30 – British Prime Minister Theresa
May is fully focused on tackling extremism, her spokesman said
on Thursday, responding to a tweet by U.S. President Donald
Trump telling her to focus on “destructive Radical Islamic
Terrorism”.

Asked if May was focused on tackling extremism: her
spokesman said: “Yes.”

“The overwhelming majority of Muslims in this country are
law-abiding people who abhore extremism in all its forms. The
prime minister has been clear … that where Islamist extremism
does exist it should be tackled head on. We are working hard to
do that both at home and internationally and … with our U.S.
partners.”
