"SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!" Says Trump About NYC Attack Suspect

Sources Associated Press Times reporting

And after his trail of terror was halted by a police bullet, he asked to display the Islamic State flag in his hospital room, saying "he felt good about what he had done", authorities said.

Tuesday's assault was the deadliest in New York City since September 11, 2001, when suicide hijackers crashed two jetliners into the World Trade Center, killing more than 2,600 people.

Prosecutors unveiled the charges, saying he had waived his rights and confessed to being inspired by IS propaganda, after yelling "Allahu akbar" ("God is greatest" in Arabic) upon exiting a rented pickup truck in Lower Manhattan on Tuesday.

The Uzbek has been charged with acting in support of ISIS by ploughing the rented truck down a popular riverside bike trail, crushing pedestrians and cyclists. The criminal complaint said he chose to use a rented truck as a weapon "to inflict maximum damage against civilians".

Sen. Lindsay Graham, a Republican, on Thursday repeated his criticism of the Justice Department for charging Saipov in the courts rather than treating him as an enemy combatant.

"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.

In this courtroom drawing, defendant Sayfullo Saipov, right, addresses the court during his arraignment on federal terrorism charges, Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017, at Manhattan Federal Court in NY.

According to the Washington Post, federal authorities said the 29-year-old told them he has been plotting his attack for a year and decided on using a truck two months ago.

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".

President Donald Trump called for the man to be executed.

Prosecutors have announced two federal charges so far: provision of material support and resources to a designated foreign terrorist organization, and violence and destruction of motor vehicles. "Every time they hit us, we know it is ISIS, we hit them like you won't believe", he said. Trump said there was something "appropriate" about keeping Saipov where he committed the crime, and tweeted, "Should move fast".

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Saipov had been radicalised after moving to the United States. After entering the country, he reportedly went from OH to Tampa, Florida and then to Paterson, New Jersey, where he lived with his wife and three children for several years.
