After NYC Terror Attack, Trump Vows to End 'This Craziness'

President Trump took to Twitter Wednesday to discuss how the terrorist who carried out Tuesday’s attack in New York City was in the United States.

According to the president, 29-year-old Sayfullo Saipov, an Uzbekistan native, “came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program.’”

Trump called the program a “Chuck Schumer beauty” and noted that he wants a merit-based system.  

“We are fighting hard for Merit Based immigration, no more Democrat Lottery Systems. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter),” he added.

He also quoted Col. Tony Shaffer who said “Senator Chuck Schumer [is] helping to import Europes [sic] problems."

“We will stop this craziness!” Trump promised.

On Tuesday, he said he ordered the Department of Homeland Security to “step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!”

DHS said after the terror attack that using vehicles to plow into crowds of people is gaining popularity among jihadists around the world.

“We have recently seen attacks like this one throughout the world,” the department said in a news release. “DHS and its law enforcement partners remain vigilant and committed to safeguarding the American people.”

Since April 2016, Europe has experienced at least nine such attacks, including in Spain, France, England, Sweden, and Germany.
