President Donald Trump unloaded during a press appearance on Wednesday on the 29-year-old man accused of ramming into a bike lane and killing eight people in New York City, suggesting he would consider sending the suspect to the military prison at the USA naval base on Guantanamo Bay.

President Donald Trump railed against the diversity lottery visa program following the terror attack in New York City on Tuesday.

"I think it's kind of absurd in the hours after this bad attack to be using it as a fulcrum for a debate that's been going on in Congress for completely different reasons", Representative Adam Schiff of California said on MSNBC on Wednesday. I would certainly consider that. "Look at him as an unlawful enemy combatant, take the time you need to develop who he is, what he did, and why; be ready to present if necessary to a federal judge your case against him being an unlawful enemy combatant".

Trump also said he will ask Congress to "immediately initiate work" to end the diversity visa lottery program, which Saipov used to enter the United States in 2010. "Sounds nice. It's not nice". "It's not nice. It's not good".

"We have to get much less politically correct", Trump said Wednesday.

According to the State Department, Saipov, a legal permanent US resident, immigrated from his native Uzbekistan in March 2010 through the Diversity Immigrant Visa program, which is created to increase the number of immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the USA through a lottery system.


In an afternoon press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the administration now considers Saipov an "enemy combatant".

The White House on Wednesday said it sees the perpetrator of a deadly attack in NY an "enemy combatant", opening the door to his detention without normal rights. Make one of your most important contributions of the year-now.

"Fifteen years has proven no one will ever be successfully tried or "brought to justice" at Guantánamo, and the president and his supporters within his own party are deluded if they believe otherwise".

A Democratic lawmaker criticized the president's response.

Throughout his rise to the Oval Office, Mr Trump regularly invoked the perils of terrorist attacks in justifying fortified immigration policies.
