President Donald Trump reversed course on his previous call for the Manhattan terrorist to be transported to Guantanamo Bay, pointing out in a Thursday tweet that a trial in New York will lead to a quicker resolution.
The tweets come one day after Trump said he “would consider” sending Sayfullo Saipov, who killed eight and wounded 11 Monday, to Guantanamo Bay during a broadcasted cabinet meeting.
Trump went on to criticize the diversity visa program, which Saipov used to enter the country from Uzbekistan in 2010.
“Diversity lottery — sounds nice. It’s not nice,” Trump told reporters. “It’s not good. It’s not good. It hasn’t been good. We’ve been against it.”
