New York Attack Live: Suspect Arrested; Trump Condemns Act of Terror
Trump's tweet was vague on what aspect of vetting Homeland Security should "step up".
A day after terror struck New York City, President Trumptweeted that he was ordering the Department of Homeland Security to "step up" the country's "already Extreme Vetting Program".
President Donald Trump decried political correctness Wednesday in the wake of the New York City terror attack, claiming that the country is "so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything."We have to get much tougher".
"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City and their families", Trump had said in a statement after the attack.
Authorities said five Argentinians and one Belgian were among the eight killed in the attack.
"We also have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater" for terrorists, he added.
A white Toyota minivan with Florida plates parked in a New Jersey Home Depot lot was surrounded by the police, who are investigating a rented Home Depot truck's deadly rampage down a bike path near New York's World Trade Center.
Trump's reaction "is in keeping with his responses to other attacks" in which the perpetrator was alleged to have possible links with Islamic State, says Al Jazeera English.
Trump said Tuesday following the shooting that the USA will "be talking about gun laws as time goes by" in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting, the nation's deadliest in modern history. "We need to first see what plan Washington would put in place before commenting on the development", a government source said on condition of anonymity. "Enough!" he said in another tweet. And the White House confirmed Trump's tweet that the assailant, Sayfullo Saipov, entered the U.S. through the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, which awards visas to vetted individuals randomly selected from countries where there is a low rate of immigration to the US.
A paintball gun and a pellet gun were found at the scene, police said. When it's banning Muslims, he'll happily speak up, but after the Vegas shooting, he called the incident "a miracle" and said absolutely nothing about gun control or the NRA. He speaks out against "chain migration", and the visa program that allowed the driver into the USA and calls the United States system of justice a "joke".
