Manhattan terrorist should get death penalty, says Trump

"But when *you* say it, it makes it harder for DOJ to make that happen".

In a highly unusual instance of a president weighing in on the fate of a defendant awaiting trial, Trump said on Twitter that 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov "SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!" in the attack that left eight people dead.

Capitalizing on the opportunity, Trump attacked pro-immigration political opponents, including New York Senator, Chuck Schumer.

Saipov was wounded by a shot from the police after driving over a crowd of people with a vehicle and is now under surveillance in a NY hospital. The suspect, who is a native of Uzbekistan and a legal resident of the USA, was charged Wednesday in Manhattan federal court with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization. "God be with them!" another tweet read. "Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!"

Trump also criticized the United States justice system, saying he would be open to sending Saipov to the U.S. military prison operated at the naval base on Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Speaking to the press Wednesday, the president called the justice system "a laughingstock" and said he would consider sending the suspect to Guantanamo Bay.

Celtics Considered Most Likely Destination For Jahlil Okafor If Bought Out
So the fact that I know that at the end of the season I would at least have an opportunity to play elsewhere, that's great. The Celtics might want Okafor only after a buyout - i.e., if they don't have to surrender any assets to Philadelphia.


President Donald Trump is calling for the death penalty against the man charged with mowing down pedestrians and bikers in New York City, raising the question of whether his rhetoric could imperil prosecutors' efforts in the case. "Tell that to people in the Pentagon", Graham said in a reference to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Graham told reporters that the suspect would not need to be held at Guantánamo - although he could be - and that it was possible that Saipov could later be reclassified as a civilian.

This morning he followed up with a tweet adding that though he "would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo" it would be quicker to try Sayfullo Saipov in a federal court.

Outside court, Saipov's attorney said he hoped "everyone lets the judicial process play out". But the Trump administration revived it, applying the designation to an American IS fighter captured September 12 in Syria As a candidate, Trump promised to "load up" Guantánamo Bay "with some really bad dudes".

The maximum penalty for the first is death; the maximum for the second life in prison, Kim said.

"Particularly in NY, if he's for it, we're against it", Kuby said.
