In the wake of the horrifying terrorist attack in New York, which is believed to be radical Islamic terrorism, President Trump has tweeted to America.
The President called the suspect, Sayfullo Saipov, a “very sick and deranged person,” and said that law enforcement is “following this closely,” and added, “NOT IN THE U.S.A.!”
Saipov, the 29-year-old “Floridian” suspect, is reported to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” during his attack, which left up to 8 people dead, and over 12 more wounded.
NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio quickly declared the attack was terrorism, and the NYPD and various others seem to agree that this was, indeed, radical Islamic terror.

Sayfullo Saipov used a rented Home Depot truck to murder as many random, innocent people as possible, which is a tactic we’ve seen used by radical Islamic terrorists throughout Europe over the past few years.
The attack in New York City today, on Halloween, is just one more reminder of why President Trump’s immigration policy that focuses on keeping American’s safe is so important.
In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person. Law enforcement is following this closely. NOT IN THE U.S.A.!
