Trump calls NYC truck attack suspect 'animal', vows immigration crackdown

Trump calls NYC truck attack suspect 'animal', vows immigration crackdown”

A separate executive order from March 6 directed administration officials to "develop a uniform baseline for screening and vetting standards and procedures applicable to all travelers who seek to enter the United States".

Donald Trump responded to the deadly attack in NY in typical fashion on Tuesday, via Twitter.

US President Donald Trump responded in a series of tweets to the deadly terror attack in Manhattan on Tuesday, saying that he has instructed the Department of Homeland Security "to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program".

Some accused "liberal judges" of putting political correctness ahead of USA national security.

The attacker in the recent attack has been identified as 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, an immigrant who came to the U.S. in 2010. In the pickup truck-ramming attack, eight people were murdered and 11 others were injured.

Vetting procedures attempt to detect foreign nations who may commit or support acts of terrorism, or pose a threat to national security. The US termed the incident as an "act of terrorism".

One of Trump's top domestic priorities has been a crackdown on undocumented immigrants and a strengthening of screening procedures for foreigners seeking to enter the U.S.

Donald Trump releases 'Stand for the National Anthem' petition
In a later tweet, Trump suggested action needed to be taken in response to the large number of players who continue to protest during the national anthem.

Given that the suspect isn't white, President Donald Trump was quick to condemn the attack, calling the suspect a "very sick and deranged person" yet offering no condolences whatsoever to the families of victims.

This response, taking action against Muslims, is in stark contrast with Trump's response to the Las Vegas shooting recently.

A senior law enforcement officer advised CNN that a note was found in the truck was stated that the attack had been carried out in the name of ISIS.

Trump tweeted criticism of the diversity visa program, pushing for a merit-based visa system and "no more Democrat Lottery Systems". "At the end, who knows what happens", Trump said.

The report was released this afternoon: "President Trump's commission on the opioid crisis called Wednesday for a nationwide system of drug courts and easier access to alternatives to opioids for people in pain, part of a wide-ranging menu of improvements it said are needed to curb the opioid epidemic".

The so-called diversity visa program was created by Congress in 1990.
