Trump pushes "extreme vetting" in wake of attack

Trump pushes

By Lalit K Jha Washington, Nov 1 (PTI) US President Donald Trump has condemned the "terrorist attack" in NY that left at least eight people dead and 11 others injured. He added, "Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!"

It is thought that the devastating attack which killed eight innocent people will further intensify the Presidents plans to introduce the strict new program which he has been campaigning for since the past year.

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.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told a weird hypothetical story yesterday about buying beers in the hopes of selling tax cuts.

However, following an attack in Las Vegas in October, in which 58 people were shot dead by Stephen Paddock, an American not associated with Islam, Trump took more than five hours to respond, and did so in a more subdued tone.

He follows that with more tweets: "The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program, ' a Chuck Schumer beauty".

The next morning, Trump pressed forward with a laser focus on U.S. immigration measures, explaining in a tweet that the terrorist suspect "came into our country through what is called the "Diversity Visa Lottery Program" and lobbed an attack at one of New York's own senators, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. We need quick justice, and we need strong justice, much quicker and much stronger than we have right now. "If we can't verify, I don't think we should let them into the country".

Trump's tweet was vague on what aspect of vetting Homeland Security should "step up".

Trump earlier tweeted his condolences to the victims and families, and said: "We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere".

On Wednesday, Trump said he'll ask Congress to "immediately" begin work to terminate the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, which the alleged attacker used to enter the United States. "Enough!" he said in another tweet.

Other experts agreed with this, but said that the Trump administration would put in place "fresher, tighter" mechanisms that everyone has to live with.
