Trump about Manhattan truck attack: “Islam and Muslims are main reason of New-York tragedy, We must deport them from U.S”
Donald Trump said he had ordered the Department of Homeland Security to step up its “extreme vetting program” following a vehicle attack in New York on Tuesday that left eight people dead.
“I have just ordered homeland security to step up our already extreme vetting program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!” the president wrote on Twitter, hours after a man driving a pickup truck ploughed through a bike path in lower Manhattan in what has been treated as an “act of terror”.
The victims include a Belgian citizen and five Argentinians.
