Trump Falsely Claims US Hitting ISIS 'Harder' After New York Attack

Sources Associated Press Times reporting

Saipov, 29, said "he felt good about what he had done" and asked for permission to display the flag of the militant group Islamic State in his hospital room, the complaint said.

Vehicle rammings have been a frequent tactic deployed by IS sympathisers in the West, including in Barcelona, London, Stockholm and in Nice, where a Tunisian suicide truck bomber killed 86 people on Bastille Day a year ago. Video and still images from traffic and surveillance cameras along the route of the attack show Saipov drove the rented Home Depot pickup truck carefully - and at moderate speed - until he entered the bike path at Houston Street in Lower Manhattan and accelerated.

Eight people died in the attack, five of them childhood friends from Argentina celebrating 30 years since their high school graduation, a 31-year-old Belgian mother and two men, from NY and neighbouring New Jersey.

Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the New York City truck attack, is seen in this courtroom sketch appearing in Manhattan federal courtroom.

Brought to court in a wheelchair, Saipov was held without bail on charges that could bring the death penalty.

"I'm not someone who believes in the death penalty in general, I just don't", de Blasio told a news conference near the site of Saipov's attack. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12.

Questioned in his hospital bed, Saipov said he had been inspired by Islamic State videos and began plotting an attack about a year ago, deciding to use a truck about two months ago. Saipov told the Federal Bureau of Investigation that he practiced maneuvering trucks for a few weeks.

After the hearing, Saipov's court-appointed lawyer said he hoped people would let "the judicial process play out", adding, "I promise you that how we treat Mr. Saipov in this judicial process will say a lot more about us than it will say about him". "Every time they hit us, we know it is ISIS, we hit them like you won't believe", he said.

The complaint listed two counts: provision of material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and violence and destruction of motor vehicles. Trump said there was something "appropriate" about keeping Saipov where he committed the crime, and tweeted, "Should move fast".

Saipov told investigators that he chose Tuesday to attack, because it was Halloween, and he expected more people to be out in public.

Trump also has called for eliminating the 1990s visa lottery program that Saipov used to come to the U.S.in 2010.

Five Argentine tourists, a Belgian woman, a New Yorker and a New Jersey man were killed in Tuesday's attack.
