NYC Truck Attack Suspect Should Get Death Penalty

NYC Truck Attack Suspect Should Get Death Penalty

But the president appeared to reverse course a day later, tweeting that "statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system".

Trump took to Twitter to condemn the terrorist, and in doing so, suggested that he receive the death penalty.

Sanders said the Trump administration considers Saipov to be an "enemy combatant", but stressed that no decision had been made about how to prosecute him or where he would be detained.

Trump tweeted Thursday that there is "also something appropriate" about keeping Saipov "in the home of the frightful crime he committed".

US President Donald Trump reiterated his call yesterday for the death penalty against the Uzbek immigrant accused of killing eight people by driving a truck down a popular Manhattan bike path, the deadliest act of suspected terrorism to strike New York City since September 11, 2001.

He also told investigators he believed the attack was a success - and he asked to fly the ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, severely injured 12.

Late last night President Trump sent out a tweet to his 41 million followers, declaring that the terror suspect accused of running people down on a NY bike lane "should get death penalty". And after his trail of terror was halted by a police bullet, he asked to display the Islamic State flag in his hospital room, saying "he felt good about what he had done", authorities said. "President Trump, instead of politicizing and dividing America, which he always seems to do at times of national tragedy, should be bringing us together and focusing on the real solution-anti terrorism funding, which he proposed to cut in his most recent budget", said Schumer, according to the New York Times.

Tuesday's attack was the first terror strike inside the United States during Trump's presidency and was allegedly done in sympathy with Islamic State, also known as ISIS, the extremist group Trump has argued he has "on the run".

"We have to get much tougher, much smarter, and less politically correct", Trump said.

Investigators work around the wreckage of a Home Depot pickup truck a day after it was used in a terror attack in NY on November 1, 2017.

After the NY attack, by contrast, Trump moved within hours from expressing support and condolences for the city to shifting criticism onto others.

Mr Trump has also assailed Senator Chuck Schumer, the top Democrat in the Senate, who in 1990 introduced the bill in the House of Representatives that helped create the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program - despite the fact that Mr Schumer was among a bipartisan group of lawmakers in 2013 who sought to end it.

"It will endure." The phrase "it will endure" commonly refers to the Islamic State group, and Saipov had a cellphone loaded with the group's propaganda, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent said in the criminal complaint. Trump tweeted on Wednesday night.

No one arrested in the United States has ever been sent to Guantanamo Bay, and the last time a person arrested overseas was sent there was in 2008.

Tuesday's assault was the deadliest in NY since the September 11, 2001, when more than 2600 people died in the World Trade Centre attack.
