Time to ramp up 'Extreme Vetting Program' after New York City attack

Mrs Trump

Saipov was reportedly shot by police in NY and was taken to hospital for treatment, and in the wake of the incident, US President Donald Trump called for Homeland Security to increase its vetting process.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, had ordered more robust "extreme vetting" of travelers coming into the United States, in the aftermath of the first deadly terror attack in NY, since the September 11, 2001, carnage in the city.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of today's terrorist attack in New York City and their families", Trump said in a statement after a 29-year-old man, identified as Sayfullo Saipov, plowed a speeding truck through a busy bike path in Lower Manhattan today.

One of those was Tashfeen Malik, who helped her USA -born husband kill 14 people in the San Bernardino, Calif., attack in 2015. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).

"We also have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater" for terrorists, he added. "I will continue to follow developments closely".

"This is a very painful day in our city", New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio stated after the attack.




Donald Trump responded to the deadly attack in NY in typical fashion on Tuesday, via Twitter.

Trump has been at his usual anti-Muslim rhetoric, saying that in the wake of the attack, he will be upping the ante on his "extreme vetting" of Muslim tourists and migrants in future.

Condemning the attack, USA president Donald Trump said "we must not allow ISIS to return".

Some experts, too, agreed with this viewpoint but said the measures taken by the U.S. under its sovereign right to improve its homeland security won't target a country such as India.

"You'll have to contact the White House regarding the President's tweet", said Homeland Security acting press secretary Tyler Houlton.

Just two months earlier, Trump had been slow to call out white supremacists and neo-Nazis as responsible for violence in Charlottesville, Virginia - and later blamed counter-protesters, too - and defended himself by insisting that he "wanted to make sure, unlike most politicians, that what I said was correct, not make a quick statement".
