US President Donald Trump has been criticised today for "politicising" last night's terrorist attack in NY, where a suspected Muslim immigrant named Sayfullo Saipov drove a truck through a crowd of people in lower Manhattan near the 9/11 memorial site.

Republican leaders in Congress said the government should employ similar tactics to ensure that Tuesday's truck attack in New York City is not repeated. We must get MUCH tougher (and smarter).
Authorities said police shot Saipov at the scene, took him into custody, and transported him to New York's Bellevue Hospital for treatment of an injury to the abdomen that was not deemed to be life-threatening.

He'll face questions about his swift reversals of Obama-era protections for transgender people and criminal justice policies. But Sessions would not answer Wednesday when Sen. "I'm not sure I should without clearing that with the special counsel".
