  • “That was a horrible event and we have to stop it and we have to stop it cold. We also have to come up with a punishment that is far quicker and far greater in the punishment these animals are getting right now,” Trump said

We reported in July that President Trump would begin preparations to send terrorists back to the prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

The president made the comment a day after police said Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbek immigrant, mowed people down on a bicycle path in Manhattan, killing eight and injuring at least 11 more.

"Send him to Gitmo", Mr Trump said. In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, McCain said: "The terrorist attack in NY is the latest brutal, horrific example of the war that radical Islamist extremists are waging against our nation and our way of life".

Trump also said he will ask Congress to "immediately initiate work" to end the diversity visa lottery program, which Saipov used to enter the United States in 2010. "Sounds nice, it is not nice, it is not good".

"We're so politically correct that we're afraid to do anything", he said.

The Diversity Lottery program, enacted 27 years ago, has allowed 50,000 people per year to come to the US from countries with low levels of immigration.

"We need quick justice and we need strong justice", he said.

Sen Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC, advocated treating him as an "enemy combatant", a designation that strips away due process protections like the right to challenge their imprisonment.

Trump told reporters that he would consider sending suspect Sayfullo Saipov to Guantanamo, report the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Huffington Post and the Washington Examiner. Law-enforcement authorities said the suspect in NY followed an ISIS playbook to carry out the attack.

"So what I suggest the administration do is in the initial phase, look at the evidence associating this man with radical islamic terrorism thought", Graham said.

McCain (R-Ariz.), chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, agrees with Graham that Saipov should be treated as an enemy combatant.

"We must not consider these attacks on our homeland in isolation, but rather recognize them for what they are: acts of war", he said. (However, Schumer he was also a player in a 2013 immigration overhaul bill that would have eliminated the program).
