Trump reponds to NY attack

Share

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". The decision is because of the NY bombing that killed 8 people and injured 11.

"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program", Trump tweeted in the hours after the attack that left eight people dead.

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

"Enough!" The suspect was identified by USA media as Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek national who entered the United States in 2010.

Eight people were killed when a man in a rental truck ploughed along a bike path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday, in what authorities called a terrorist attack.

Vetting procedures attempt to detect foreign nations who may commit or support acts of terrorism, or pose a threat to national security.

Conte has also admitted that Kante is "ready" to play but is adamant that he will not rush the midfielder's return. If I look at the past, I see it happened the same with the other managers.

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

Terrorist attacks are fine as long as they suit Trump's agenda.

After it was revealed that an Uzbekistan native legally living in the USA was allegedly responsible for the attack in New York City on Tuesday, President Trump wasted no time calling for an end to lottery-based visas and a strengthened vetting process.

"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. Law enforcement is following this closely. 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. We have to get much smarter.

He signed it in private, suggesting he knows not to be proud of his actions: "President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed the repeal of a banking rule that would have allowed consumers to join together to sue their bank or credit card company to resolve financial disputes".

"She reiterated that the UK will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with the United States in defeating the evil of terrorism", the Downing Street said in a statement.
