Trump calls for extreme vetting — NYC TERROR ATTACK

Manhattan attack

"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Programme".

Border control in the United States will be strengthened by order of President Donald Trump.

Travel from Uzbekistan, from where the perpetrator of Tuesday's attack originated, would not be affected by the proposed ban. And the White House confirmed Trump's tweet that the assailant, Sayfullo Saipov, entered the USA 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.

New York City Police Commissioner James O'Neill said a statement the driver made as he got out of the truck and the method of attack led police to conclude it was a terrorist act. Trump had tweeted after the London terror attack in June.

"Extreme vetting is, we simply interview people and have to satisfy ourselves that the person we're talking to is indeed the person who they claim,"he said".

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

"Shortly after Trump spoke, the White House released a proclamation ordering flags be flown at half-staff on federal buildings". The officials further added that the contents are being investigated and the document supported the belief the act was terrorism.

On Tuesday, Trump tweeted a series of messages that began with "In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person".

However, de Blasco said: "The bottom line is we are going to go about our business". The attacker was shot by the police and taken to a hospital. "Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said there was no evidence of a wider plot, attributing the attack to the "actions of one individual".

The brothers who set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon in 2013 came from Kyrgzystan and were children when their family entered the U.S. And Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people in the Pulse nightclub in Orlando in 2016, was born in NY to Afghan parents. What we have right now is a joke, and it's a laughing stock. Terrorist attacks are fine as long as they suit Trump's agenda.

"We also have to come up with punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now", Trump told reporters.

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