President Trump weighed in on the New York City terrorist who killed 8 and injured many others… taking to Twitter to share his thoughts, of course.
Trump tweeted: “NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!”
When a reporter asked Trump earlier this week his thoughts on sending the suspect to the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, he answered: “I would certainly consider that, yes. Send him to Gitmo.”
The suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, is accused of killing 8 peeople and leaving nearly a dozen others injured when he struck them with his truck on a bike path in lower Manhattan. He was charged with providing material support to ISIS, as well as violence and destruction of a motor vehicle with willful disregard for human life, according to the acting U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York.
Trump noted during a Cabinet meeting: “We need quick justice and we need strong justice — much quicker and much stronger than we have right now,” adding, “Because what we have right now is a joke and it’s a laughingstock. And no wonder so much of this stuff takes place.”
As all things political go, there was a heated debate on The Hill’s coverage of Trump’s comments, with one person noting: “The people on here defending terrorists who ran down the green bicyclists and slammed into a school bus are unbelievable!! Just buy a t-shirt that says I heart ISIS and move to Uzbekistan.”
Another responded: “If you don’t like our Constitution or things like due process and humane treatment of the accused, then maybe you should move to Uzbekistan. Most Americans like living in a country where they have constitutional rights, though.”
Another commenter added: “He’s a foreigner and he hates America. The U.S. Constitution doesn’t apply to him.”
One commenter made this observation: “Reaction to Las Vegas: ‘It’s too soon to talk about guns.’ Reaction to NYC: ‘It’s not too soon to talk about visas, Muslims, walls, or bans.'”
Another person made this comment: Terrorist do not deserve due process…that was how Barry Hussein delt with terrorists. He will be quickly prosecuted in military court and hung. However if he was tried..some leftist progressive would be the one defending him.
One commenter had this to say:”The military court system is already amended into the Constitution…lefty.He is not a citizen and he is an enemy of the state.”
Others had this to say:
“I hope he gets life in prison.The savage wants to die.Deny him that pleasure.Allow him to become……………Bubba’s woman.”
” love how every time a Muslim terrorist is brought up, some Libtwat feels the need to bring up every white domestic terrorist since the founding of this country. So I guess what they are trying to say is we should import more crazies on top of the ones we already have. Liberal logic ….”
Do you think he deserves to meet his maker via the death sentence?
