President Trump Calls For Increased Vetting In Wake Of Attack
President Trump called for the Department of Homeland Security to “step up” its “extreme vetting program” after the terror attack in New York City Tuesday.

"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program," he tweeted. "Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!"
 
Shortly after the terrorist rammed a truck through a bike path, killing at least eight people and injuring 11 others, Trump responded by saying it “looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!”
 
The suspect, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, was shot by police and taken into custody. He is an Uzbekistan native and was an Uber driver in the city.
