On Wednesday Trump said he would consider sending Saipov to the detention center at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, where the United States has housed foreign terrorism suspects for as long as 16 years, many without trial. He has yet to be formally charged.

The President described the suspect in custody, Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, as an "animal", and hit out at the program Saipov reportedly used in 2010 to come to the USA, from Uzbekistan.

Trump's comment angered ThinkProgress' Elham Khatami, who wondered why the president did not say the same of the Las Vegas mass shooter, who killed 58 people last month.

"The terrorist came into our country through what is called the 'Diversity Visa Lottery Program, ' a Chuck Schumer beauty", Trump tweeted Wednesday. "Sounds nice, it is not nice, it is not good. We have to get much less politically correct". We need quick justice and we need strong justice. "Because what we have right now is a joke and it's a laughingstock".

Trump spoke after Sen.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., also called for trying Saipov at Guantanamo, according to the Huffington Post.

The president wants to use this attack as an excuse to limit immigration. Since 2008, no one has been sent there at all. John McCain are calling for the suspect in Tuesday's terror attack in NY to be held as an unlawful enemy combatant. "From Orlando to San Bernardino and Boston to Manhattan, we must not consider these attacks on our homeland in isolation, but rather recognize them for what they are: acts of war".

"As such, the NY terror suspect should be held and interrogated - thoroughly, responsibly, and humanely - as an enemy combatant consistent with the Law of Armed Conflict". Detainees have been held for years without being charged with any crimes, with former President George W. Bush assigning them the label "enemy combatants"-which negates any protections they would have under the Geneva Conventions". (However, Schumer he was also a player in a 2013 immigration overhaul bill that would have eliminated the program).

"Now more than ever, Congress should come together to devise and pass legislation to fully and humanely reform our broken immigration system and secure the homeland", McCain said.
