  • The NYC Attack Is Being Investigated As Potential Terrorism By The FBIAndy Kiss  Getty Images News  Getty Images

President Trump said he has ordered Homeland Security to "step up" the vetting of immigrants in light of Tuesday's attack.

Following an Isis-related attack on London Bridge that left eight dead in June, Trump published a highly charged tweet mocking London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying that there was "no reason to be alarmed". The decision is because of the NY bombing that killed 8 people and injured 11. 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.

ISIS supporters have been praising the deadly truck rampage in NY which killed eight people yesterday as law enforcement sources revealed the suspect left behind handwritten notes pledging loyalty to the terror group.

IS has been dealt a string of defeats across Iraq and Syria in recent months, with authorities anxious that fleeing foreign fighters might return home.

"We want a merit-based program, where people come into the country based on merit", Trump said.

"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program", Trump tweeted Tuesday night.

She worked at Rocky Mountain Student Media Corp., which operates The Rocky Mountain Collegian, an independent newspaper at CSU. It was there that police believe Zamora showed up and killed McNealy and Kemp before killing himself.

NY was left devastated by another deadly terror attack after a driver ploughed a truck through crowds in lower Manhattan killing eight and injuring a dozen more. We have to get much smarter.

His clear policy agenda is to change the USA immigration system: "I am, today, starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program", Trump said. "Enough!" he said in another tweet.

An Uzbek immigrant in the United States who said he knows Saipov, Mirrakhmat Muminov, told RFE/RL that Saipov lived in Akron, Ohio, before moving to Florida in 2013 and worked for many years as a truck driver.

Trump took a similar tack after an attack in London last month, while British police were still investigating the cause of an explosion on a London Underground train. What we have right now is a joke, and it's a laughing stock.

The next 24 hours - and the 24 hours after that, etc. - were also not an appropriate time to discuss potential legislation to address the scourge of gun violence, which has claimed more U.S. lives than terrorism on American soil since 2001.
