Trump's tweets seen as unlikely to slow NY terror case

President Donald Trump yesterday appeared to backtrack on the idea of sending the NY truck attacker to the USA prison for terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay.

Shortly after, White House Spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders clarified the comments by saying Trump believes the legal process "should move faster" and president was expressing his "frustration" about that with his statement.

The suspect, who eyewitnesses say screamed "Allahu Akbar", Arabic for "God is great", and waved a paintball gun and a pellet gun after stepping out of the vehicle, was shot at least once in the abdomen by police and is now hospitalized in critical but stable condition.

John Miller, deputy NY police commissioner for intelligence, said Saipov appears to have followed the instructions issued by Islamic State. "Now prosecutors will have to spend time dealing with motions that the jury pool is tainted", said Renato Mariotti, a former federal prosecutor.

"They should be forced to suffer and, when they kill, they should be executed for their crimes,"an excerpt from the ad read".

In bringing terrorism charges against Saipov, federal prosecutors Wednesday said the Uzbek immigrant used a rental truck to mow down people along a bike path after being inspired by Islamic State propaganda videos.

US President Donald Trump called for capital punishment for Manhattan terrorist Sayfullo Saipov.

But Trump argued Wednesday that the USA justice system takes too long.

He noted over 500 defendants have been convicted of terrorism-related crimes since the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Saipov did not ask for bail and was remanded to federal custody.

In a tweet early Thursday, Trump said that he "would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically the process takes much longer than going through the Federal system". A 23-year-old New York City man, a 32-year-old New Jersey man, five Argentinians and a Belgian national were among the eight people who died.

"He killed 8 people, badly injured 12".

Trump reiterated his pro-death penalty position Thursday morning, and added that he no longer supports moving the accused attacker to the prison at Guantanamo Bay because it could "take much longer".

"Particularly in NY, if he's for it, we're against it", Kuby said.
