NYC suspect should be held as enemy combatant, Graham tells Trump

“That was a horrible event and we have to stop it and we have to stop it cold. We also have to come up with a punishment that is far quicker and far greater in the punishment these animals are getting right now,” Trump said

The President described the suspect in custody, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, as an "animal", and hit out at the program Saipov reportedly used in 2010 to come to the USA, from Uzbekistan.

"Diversity lottery." Trump said. "Diversity lottery, sounds nice, it's not nice, it's not good. We've been against it".

Trump then attacked the idea of "chain migration", or family-based immigration, a central theme of the USA system that allows those in the country to sponsor relatives overseas to join them.

The president later added: "We have to get much tougher, much smarter, and less politically correct". But during the election, Trump said he had different priorities.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY, is listed as a sponsor of the 1990 legislation that created the current visa lottery for "diversity immigrants" from countries that had historically low rates of immigration to the U.S. The legislation was signed into law by President George H.W. Bush.

"We also have to come up with punishment that is far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now", Trump said, lamenting that suspects will "go through court for years". We need quick justice and we need strong justice.

"Send him to Gitmo", Trump told reporters.

Trump also said of Fed Chair Janet Yellen, "I think she's excellent", but did not say she would be his choice when he names a Federal Reserve Chair tomorrow.

Trump also criticized the United States 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. Uber confirmed that he drove more than 1,400 trips in six months, but the company said they have removed him from the service. "He's a terrorist, he should be kept there".

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. "There is enough evidence to believe that he qualifies as an enemy combatant under the law of war", said Graham.
