Trump also criticized the U.S. justice system, saying he would be open to sending the suspect, whom police have identified as Sayfullo Saipov, to the U.S. military prison operated at the naval base on Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "Send him to Gitmo".

"I am going to ask Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of this program, diversity lottery", Trump said.

"We also have to come up with punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting now", Trump added.

"What we have right now is a joke and it's a laughingstock", Trump said.

Trump said earlier Wednesday that he "would certainly consider" sending Saipov to the controversial prison.

Graham called on Trump to hold Sayfullo Saipov without access to an attorney so he can be questioned by US intelligence about the Halloween attack.

Heyman | Dave Martinez is choice for Nationals manager
He has always been a rumored candidate for a step up to a managerial spot, and Washington will provide that opportunity. Martinez becomes the seventh full-time manager for the Nats since they moved from Montreal before the 2005 season.

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. John McCain (R-Ariz.) both said terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov should be denied Miranda rights. "He's a terrorist and he should be kept there and there is no Miranda rights for somebody who killed Americans".

But during the election, Trump said he had different priorities.

President Donald Trump railed against a United States visa program following Tuesday's truck attack in New York City. "And no wonder so much of this stuff takes place". In a statement released Wednesday afternoon, McCain said: "The terrorist attack in NY is the latest brutal, horrific example of the war that radical Islamist extremists are waging against our nation and our way of life". The President is citing the attack in NY as reason to amend the almost three decade old law.

The President threatened to send suspect Sayfullo Saipov to Guantanamo Bay.


"So what I suggest the administration do is in the initial phase, look at the evidence associating this man with radical islamic terrorism thought", Graham said.

But Obama sought to close the center, did not send prisoners there and sought to try suspects in criminal courts.
