New York Attack Live: Suspect Arrested; Trump Condemns Act of Terror
"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program".
Once again, it's all about President Donald Trump. However, the website notes, the president's responses seem more subdued when it comes to attacks involving non-Muslims.
Earlier in the day, Trump vowed to keep ISIS out of America.
Less than 24 hours after a terror attack that killed eight people on a New York City bike path, Trump is doing precisely what you expected of him: blaming others, talking tough, scrambling the facts - and making himself the center of attention.
"Shortly after Trump spoke, the White House released a proclamation ordering flags be flown at half-staff on federal buildings". "President Trump has been talking about these issues, including the measures targeting people from certain Muslim countries that were struck down by the courts", said Lalit Mansingh, former foreign secretary who had also served as the country's envoy to the US.
De Blasio told reporters: "The bottom line is we are going to go about our business". White House officials did not comment directly on the investigation.
Mobile And Sprint's Planned Merger Is A No-Go
The decision was made 30 October to call the talks off, and Deutsche Telekom would be informed the following day, the report said. These two companies came close in 2014 about the merging, but later due to some regulatory concerns called it off.
Before a Cabinet meeting, the president said he would end the Diversity Visa Program that attacker Sayfullo Saipov used to enter the country in 2010.
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.
It was the first such deadly attack in NY since the September 11, 2001 attacks, and the first time the United States has been struck with a vehicular attack like those that have occurred recently in Europe.
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".
Trump has previously talked about his extreme vetting process following a major terrorist attack. Trump demands "punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now".
"What the USA does in terms of its homeland security, immigration policies and visa procedures are the sovereign right of that country".
Sprint reportedly calling off T-Mobile merger talks
