During the interview, the TV host, 52, slammed the Work and Pensions Secretary for the government’s “abject failure” to detect the perpetrators before the atrocity at the weekend.
The MP for Ashford was asked by host Susanna Reid about why the three men were not caught before committing their act of terror despite being known to the authorities.
“Well, obviously I don’t know the details,” he started, before going on to say: “No one outside the police and security services will know the details of what happened, particularly because there’s still obviously a police investigation into what was a hugely serious attack. I don’t think it’s right for anyone who doesn’t know the full facts to start speculating.”
Morgan was not impressed and blasted the Conservative politician: “Hang on, with respect to you, if you don’t know, who the hell does know? Isn’t part of the problem that all the government ministers are queuing up to say, ‘I don’t know. Don’t blame us, Guv. We had no idea'.”
He went on to say that one of the men was in a Channel 4 documentary proclaiming his allegiance to the so-called Islamic State, while another stated to the Italian police that he wanted to be a terrorist.
“What more do these people have to do before your government, who have been in power for a number of years, stop these people before the commit these atrocities?” Morgan railed.
Piers Morgan and Damian Green clash on Good Morning Britain
With due respect again, all this is winning the award for the bleeding obvious after the event
Green addressed the broadcaster’s concerns, telling him that the Prime Minister Theresa May had already made some suggestions and improvements.
“With due respect again, all this is winning the award for the bleeding obvious after the event. All this can be predicted. Theresa May was the Home Secretary who presided over the most savage cuts to our police force of any Home Secretary I can remember.
“So why should we trust Theresa May or this government when we go to the polls tomorrow? Why should we trust anything you say when you so abjectly failed?”

His words led Green to hit back, saying that Morgan was blaming him for the attack. The Good Morning Britain presenter then told him bluntly: “I am blaming Theresa May when she was Home Secretary. I am blaming your government for the abject failure for detecting this terrorist attack.”
Morgan continued: “When it comes to blaming people, yes, I am blaming you. I am blaming your government. I am blaming you for not stopping them.”
Green was heard fighting to speak over Morgan, before finally saying: “Is anyone else allowed to talk on your show? I know you like the sound of your own voice.
