Time to ramp up 'Extreme Vetting Program' after New York City attack

President Trump who was responding to Tuesday's terrorist attack in NY said new measures are already being put in place by homeland security.

He signed it in private, suggesting he knows not to be proud of his actions: "President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed the repeal of a banking rule that would have allowed consumers to join together to sue their bank or credit card company to resolve financial disputes". Uzbekistan, a largely Muslim nation in central Asia, was not part of the ban.

Following an Isis-related attack on London Bridge that left eight dead in June, Trump published a highly charged tweet mocking London Mayor Sadiq Khan for saying that there was "no reason to be alarmed".

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attack in New York City and their families", Trump had said in a statement after the attack. In addition to the eight fatalities, 13 people were injured, some critically. "We need to first see what plan Washington would put in place before commenting on the development", a government source said on condition of anonymity.

"Shortly after Trump spoke, the White House released a proclamation ordering flags be flown at half-staff on federal buildings". The FBI is investigating the case as a terrorist act.

De Blasio told reporters: "The bottom line is we are going to go about our business".

"Today is a day for consoling the survivors, and mourning those we lost", press secretary Sarah Sanders said on behalf of the White House later that day.

The driver is suspected to be Sayfullo Saipov, 29, who is said to have pledged his allegiance to ISIS before the attack as police found notes written in Arabic and a picture of the terror group's black flag in the Home Depot truck.

Trump added that the attack was carried out "by a very sick and deranged person".

One of Trump's top domestic priorities has been a crackdown on undocumented immigrants and a strengthening of screening procedures for foreigners seeking to enter the U.S.

Trump has previously talked about his extreme vetting process following a major terrorist attack. What we have right now is a joke, and it's a laughing stock.
