NYC TERROR ATTACK: Trump calls for extreme vetting

India Tv- People and media watch the scene after a motorist drove onto a busy bicycle path near the World Trade Center memorial and struck several people

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, on Wednesday said President Donald Trump did not call the U.S. justice system "a joke" and "a laughingstock". This is the first major attack after the deadly attack in NY on September 11, 2001.

'I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!" - the ACLU tweeted: "When Trump says 'extreme vetting, ' what he really means is government-sponsored religious discrimination.

Officials who were not authorised to discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity identified the attacker as Sayfullo Saipov and said he is from Uzbekistan and came to the U.S. in 2010.

After a gunman in a truck plowed through a busy bike path, at least eight people were killed and 11 other injured in Lower Manhattan yesterday. The officials further added that the contents are being investigated and the document supported the belief the act was terrorism.

"The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program, ' a Chuck Schumer beauty".

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".

GameStop appears to be launching an unlimited used game rental subscription
If you're someone who likes to play a lot of games and lives near a GameStop, however, it sounds like a pretty good deal. It boosts trade-in values for recent games days after they launch, so the latest titles are usually in-stock.

In response to the attack, President Trump tweeted, "In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person".

Asked to reconcile his responses to the attacks in Orlando and Las Vegas, Sanders suggested Trump had adopted a different tack since assuming the mantle of the presidency.

A senior law enforcement officer advised CNN that a note was found in the truck was stated that the attack had been carried out in the name of ISIS. We have to get much smarter. The difference between Trump's responses to Las Vegas and NY show what type of terrorism he thinks requires a policy response - and what type requires only thoughts and prayers.

Opposition Labour party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, also expressed his "solidarity" with those affected in a tweet soon after the attack. "I will continue to follow developments closely".

Sen. Jeff Flake, a Republican who publicly denounced the president in a speech last week, reminded Trump that a bipartisan immigration reform bill would have ended the lottery program.
