NY attack: Trump uses terror to push extreme vetting

NY attack: Trump uses terror to push extreme vetting

Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!' Trump tweeted Tuesday night around 9pm ET. That attack was the deadliest mass shooting in American history, but the assailant was a white American man with no religious affiliation, so Trump didn't have much to say about it.

Trump earlier decried the attack as an act of madness. "I will continue to follow developments closely".

Donald Trump responded to the deadly attack in NY in typical fashion on Tuesday, via Twitter. However, the website notes, the president's responses seem more subdued when it comes to attacks involving non-Muslims.

"We also have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater" for terrorists, he added.

Before a Cabinet meeting, the president said he would end the Diversity Visa Program that attacker Sayfullo Saipov used to enter the country in 2010.

His clear policy agenda is to change the U.S. immigration system: "I am, today, starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program", Trump said.

At least 10 dead in hotel attack in Mogadishu
Its sister hotel, the Nasahablod, was targeted by Al Shabab in a similar attack that killed 11 people in June a year ago . The group is believed to be behind a Mogadishu truck bomb attack two weeks ago that killed more than 350 people.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasco responded to Tuesday's attack: "This was an act of terror, and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians, aimed at people going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them".

Promising the country will "never ever forget the attractive lives that have been taken from us", Trump the next day told reporters, "we have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater than these animals are getting right now".

The pattern proved itself out once again in October, a month that began with the mass shooting in Las Vegas and ended with the terrorist attack in NY.

Pressed on the President's support for legislation on bump stocks, Sanders dodged, pointing to the delicate environment. 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". "Members of both parties and multiple organizations are planning to take a look at bump stocks and related devices".

A month later, the country is still waiting.

"This man who came in with him brought in other people".
