Once again, America has been rocked by a terrible act of terror. By now you know the news that a radical, Islamic terrorist—inspired by ISIS—used a rented truck to kill eight people in New York, hurting more.
This happened in the wake of ISIS’s defeats in Iraq and Syria. As U.S. and ally forces crush them in the Middle East, more radical Muslims rally to their cry around the world.
It’s time for this to end. President Trump is taking greater steps to ensure no American dies at the hands of terrorists again.
I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!

From The Hill:
President Trump tweeted on Tuesday that he had ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to implement tougher vetting procedures in the wake of the deadly attack in New York City.
“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!” Trump said.
His tweet came just hours after a driver plowed into a crowded bike lane in Manhattan, killing at least eight people. The suspect, 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, was shot by police and remains in critical condition, according to The New York Times.
Saipov is a native of Uzbekistan who came to the United States in 2010, CBS News reported.
Keep in mind, the President has been pushing for more vetting and stricter standards since he entered office. Who has tried to stop him? Oh, liberals like Chuck Schumer, whose diversity VISA program allowed Saipov to enter America in the first place.
It’s completely unacceptable for any U.S. policy to allow terrorism. Trump has signed executive orders aimed at keeping America safe, only for liberal judges—spurred on by democrats—to try to block them.
We know that radical, Islamic terrorism is spreading. Agents from around the world want to enter the U.S., to kill as many as they can. There are many steps we need to take to protect our families and communities. But when the left tries to block them, there’s nothing we can do but watch the horror unfold.
Hopefully President Trump will bring an end to such pathetic political correctness and see America safe once again.
