The truck attack killing Americans was perpetrated by the kind of person that Trump promised to protect us from.

The homicidal truck attack was launched by an Uzbek national who came to the U.S. in 2010. As such, it is exactly the kind of murder that Donald Trump promised to prevent. Yet the courts and the media openly resist his efforts even after the San Bernardino shooters and the Orlando nightclub shooter.

The Washington Times reports, “Trump stiffening extreme vetting of foreigners after New York truck attack.

President Trump ordered Tuesday increased extreme vetting of foreign visors to the U.S. in response to the deadly terror attack in New York City.

“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!” Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter.

Mr. Trump did not elaborate on what exactly he had ordered done. Several of his earlier efforts to tighten limits on immigrants and refugees, especially from majority-Muslim nations, have been blocked by U.S. courts.
