President Trump lashed out on Twitter Friday morning against the 29-year-old suspect in Tuesday’s terror attack in New York City that killed eight people and left several others wounded.
In an early morning tweet, Trump blasted the suspected driver of the rented truck that struck a crowd of pedestrians in lower Manhattan, calling him a “degenerate animal.”
“ISIS just claimed the Degenerate Animal who killed, and so badly wounded, the wonderful people on the West Side, was “their soldier,”” Trump said Friday.
Trump added in a second tweet that he has ordered an increase in military actions against ISIS as a result of Tuesday’s attack.
“Based on that, the Military has hit ISIS “much harder” over the last two days. They will pay a big price for every attack on us!” Trump tweeted.[contentcards url=”http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/358583-trump-nyc-attacker-was-a-degenerate-animal” target=”_blank”]
