Trump Calls NYC Attack A 'Horrible Act' Committed By An 'Animal'

President Trump reacted to the terror attack in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday by saying it was done by a “sick and deranged person.”

A awful idea: "President Donald Trump's Twitter demand Wednesday morning that a repeal of Obamacare's individual mandate be inserted in the Republican tax bill came out of the blue-and it's going over like a lead balloon on Capitol Hill". New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said there was no evidence of a wider plot, attributing the attack to the "actions of one individual".

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".

A leading U.S. political commentator has said a travel ban or increased vetting would not have stopped the suspect in the New York City attack.

The US media identified the suspect of Tuesday's multiple hit-and-run in New York City as Sayfullo Saipov, a 29-year-old Uzbek national. He killed eight people and injured 11 others, including two children.

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'".

"The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program, ' a Chuck Schumer beauty".

Microsoft to Launch Surface Pro with LTE Advanced in December 2017
Microsoft has experimented with LTE in Surface devices in the past, but now believes LTE networks are at the right stage. The LTE version of Surface Pro will be based on Qualcomm X16 Gigabit Class LTE modem.

Earlier in the day, Trump vowed to keep ISIS out of America.

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.

Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican who publicly denounced the president in a speech last week, reminded Trump that a bipartisan immigration reform bill would have ended the lottery program. And the White House confirmed Trump's tweet that the assailant, Sayfullo Saipov, entered the United States 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. 'Law enforcement is following this closely. "We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter)". Trump said on Twitter.

Opposition Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, also expressed his "solidarity" with those affected in a tweet soon after the attack.

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