Trump says NY attacker should be put to death

World leaders join in support of US after deadly NYC terror attack

President Trump backed down from his threat to send New York City terrorism suspect Sayfullo Saipov to the military detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as an enemy combatant and instead called for a quick death sentence.

Trump said Thursday he would love to see Saipov prosecuted at Guantanamo, but tweeted that there is "also something appropriate" about keeping him "in the home of the disgusting crime he committed".

Trump said he would lobby Congress to end the diversity lottery program, which allots around 50,000 visas annually to immigrants with a high-school education or work experience from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States.

Mark Zaid, a National Security lawyer, commented that Trump's death penalty tirade could constitute "potentially tainting a jury pool" and could give Saipov a solid defense in claiming that the president's statements would breach a guarantee to a free and fair trial. "He killed 8 people, badly injured 12", Trump tweeted. But he appeared to reverse himself Thursday in a tweet reading, "There is something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the disgusting crime he committed". Authorities say Saipov was inspired by the Islamic State group when he veered into a city bike path in Manhattan on Tuesday, killing eight people.

Argentinian President Mauricio Macri also reacted to the attack on Twitter, saying in Spanish that he was "deeply moved by the tragic deaths in NY".

Saipov is charged with two terrorism-related crimes.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation said it had located another Uzbek man, Mukhammadzoir Kadirov, 32, wanted for questioning as a person of interest in the attack.

Five Argentine tourists, a Belgian, a New Yorker and a New Jersey man were killed in the attack. A law enforcement official said Kadirov was a friend of Saipov's and may not have any role in the case.

Saipov, 29, who was shot by a police officer and hospitalized, was summoned to federal court on Wednesday; he reportedly arrived in a wheelchair and did not request a plea bargain. It was not immediately clear where he would be held.

He added that the US justice system is "a joke and it's a laughingstock" because it doesn't move quickly enough.
