Trump: Suspect in NYC Attack ‘Should Get Death Penalty’ – The Daily Beast.

President Trump on Wednesday night called for Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the New York truck attack, to get the death penalty. “NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!” Trump tweeted. The president’s comments came after Saipov made his first court appearance late Wednesday after being hit with federal terrorism charges for Tuesday’s attack. He is alleged to have intentionally mowed down pedestrians in an ISIS-inspired terrorist attack that prosecutors say he planned for a year.
