NY attack : President Trump orders extreme vetting of travellers

NY attack : President Trump orders extreme vetting of travellers

The latest out of New York: "The Uzbek immigrant who turned a rented pickup truck into a killing machine had been planning the deadly attack on lower Manhattan for weeks and was following the Islamic State playbook 'to a T, ' the New York City police department's top anti-terrorism official said Wednesday".

Enough!" And a third: "I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program.

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

Bicycles and debris lie on a bike path after a motorist drove onto the path near the World Trade Center memorial, striking and killing several people in NY.

"I think there's a difference between being a candidate and being the President", she had said.

On the condition of anonymity, the officials were not authorized to speak publicly about an ongoing investigation and instead, spoke to The Associated Press. This is the first major attack after the deadly attack in NY on September 11, 2001.

But as TIME reported, it is not yet known how the alleged attacker came to the U.S.

This move of Trump comes in the aftermath of the first deadly terror attack in NY, since the September 11, 2001, carnage in the city.

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.

"What the U.S. does in terms of its homeland security, immigration policies and visa procedures are the sovereign right of that country".

Now, compare these rushed responses to how the president reacted after a white gunman, Stephen Paddock, opened fire on a crowd of concertgoers in Las Vegas, Nevada, and killed 58 people while leaving 546 injured.

Trump later tweeted: "We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere".

'We can not fathom their pain, we can not imagine their loss, ' Trump said of those who lost loved ones in the massacre.

Also, "he didn't answer when reporters pressed him about whether the shooting was an act of 'domestic terrorism.' Trump previously addressed the nation in a somber speech on Monday morning, labeling the shooting 'pure evil'".
