President Donald Trump said Wednesday he would consider sending the suspect in the NY bike path attack to the Guantanamo Bay detention center.
"Statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system", Trump said in an early morning tweet, adding that there is "also something appropriate" about keeping him "in the home of the frightful crime he committed".
At the top of a cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Trump said that he would be open to Saipov, a 29 year-old immigrant from Uzbekistan, being detained in Guantanamo Bay, a facility in Cuba that holds terror suspects.
Although the state of NY does not contemplate capital punishment in it's penal system, which has life imprisonment as the maximum penalty, however, Saipov could receive a death sentence in a federal trial for terrorism.
"There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the disgusting crime he committed", Trump added moments later.
Trump took to Twitter to condemn the terrorist, and in doing so, suggested that he receive the death penalty.
When a reporter asked whether he would send Saipov to the Guantanamo Bay prison, Trump replied, "I would certainly consider that".
At least a dozen others were injured in the truck attack in Tribeca.
Justice can, in fact, be swift in Manhattan's federal courts.
"It will endure." The phrase "it will endure" commonly refers to the Islamic State group, and Saipov had a cellphone loaded with the group's propaganda, an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent said in the criminal complaint. "Send him to Gitmo, I would certainly consider that, yes".
"Honestly, they don't want to do what's right for our country", he said of the Democrats.
Five of the eight people killed in the attack were part of a group from Argentina celebrating the 30th anniversary of their high school graduation.
"I'm dumbfounded as to why the Trump Administration still follows the Obama playbook when it comes to dealing with terror suspects", Graham said in a statement, which echoed comments he made on Wednesday. They say the Islamic State group's online calls to action spurred Saipov to launch the attack in lower Manhattan on Halloween.
Donald Trump has declared he wants to immediately work with Congress to terminate the diversity immigration lottery programme, which he says is how the "animal" NY terror suspect got into the US.
President Donald Trump is calling for the death penalty against the man charged with mowing down pedestrians and bikers in New York City, raising the question of whether his rhetoric could imperil prosecutors' efforts in the case. It was deadliest attack that officials labeled terrorism in NY since 2001, when hijackers crashed two passenger planes into the World Trade Center, killing more than 2,600 people.
The program has become a target of conservative media, and Trump's attack against Schumer echoed articles on such websites as Breitbart News and discussions Wednesday morning on Fox News. Trump's administration could, at least in theory, still send the suspect to the USA base in Cuba later, though such a step would be unprecedented. No one held in the US has been sent to Guantanamo since the detention center opened in January 2002.
