"I think it's kind of absurd in the hours after this bad attack to be using it as a fulcrum for a debate that's been going on in Congress for completely different reasons", Representative Adam Schiff of California said on MSNBC on Wednesday.

Two senior US lawmakers called on Wednesday for the suspect in the NY truck attack to be treated as an enemy combatant rather than a criminal suspect, a change in federal policy they said would make it easier to interrogate him.

"My administration is coordinating closely between federal and local officials to investigate the attack and to further investigate this animal who did the attacking", Trump said during opening remarks at a cabinet meeting Wednesday.

The Diversity Lottery program, enacted 27 years ago, has allowed 50,000 people per year to come to the USA from countries with low levels of immigration.

Trump stated that his administration was "today starting the process of terminating the diversity lottery program".

"Diversity lottery-sounds nice", the president said in a press briefing. They haven't said whether he came in through the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program, which covers immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S.

"Send him to Gitmo", Trump told reporters. The White House has yet to make a final determination, however, she noted. "We have to get much less politically correct".

"We have to come up with punishment that's far quicker and far greater than the punishment these animals are getting right now", Trump said, adding that "what we have right now is a joke and a laughing stock".

In July, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions travelled to Cuba to gain "an up-to-date understanding of current operations" at Guantanamo Bay, calling the prison he has called a "perfectly acceptable" place to detain new terrorism suspects as opposed to holding them in the U.S. and having his own Justice Department try them in civilian courts. We need quick justice and we need strong justice. "He's a terrorist, he should be kept there". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called on the president to treat the alleged attacker as an enemy combatant.

Forty-one detainees now remain at Gitmo, though the facility hasn't accepted any new prisoners since 2008.
