In an unprecedented move, NBC News twitter feed followed up, with a uniquely dismissive comment:

Trump came under criticism recently when he referenced an attack at a resort in the Phillipines as a terrorist attack before the specifics of that story were clear.

While London authorities have now only recently claimed that they are treating this event as a terror attack, it’s rather stunning that the sitting president  appeared to think it wise to retweet a Drudge Report tweet and not relay official information of which he has exclusive access.
