Trump thinks twice on sending NY attacker to Guantanamo
President Donald Trump yesterday appeared to backtrack on the idea of sending the New York truck attacker to the US prison for terror suspects at Guantanamo Bay.
"Would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system," Trump wrote in a blast of early morning tweets.
Trump added: "There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the horrible crime he committed. Should move fast.
Tuesday's attack with a rented truck on a bike path in New York City left eight dead and 12 wounded.
Sayfullo Saipov, the Uzbek immigrant behind New York's worst attack in 16 years, confessed to acting in the name of the Islamic State group, investigators said Wednesday.
