"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program", Trump tweeted Tuesday night.

President Donald Trump said he was ordering the Department of Homeland Security to bolster vetting of immigrants coming into United States after an Uzbek man allegedly drove a truck down a bike path in NY, killing at least eight and injuring scores more.

It is thought that the devastating attack which killed eight innocent people will further intensify the Presidents plans to introduce the strict new program which he has been campaigning for since the past year.

President Donald Trump emphasized his "Extreme Vetting Program" following the deadly attack in NY.

There has been no movement by the White House to address gun laws or otherwise respond to the Las Vegas shooting since.

"We need quick justice and strong justice, much quicker and stronger than we have now". The March order suspended the travel of refugees into the United States during the 120-day review, noting that terrorist groups have attempted to infiltrate the country through USRAP.

Donald Trump responded to the deadly attack in NY in typical fashion on Tuesday, via Twitter. This is the first major attack after the deadly attack in NY on September 11, 2001.

Trump earlier decried the attack as an act of madness. And the White House confirmed Trump's tweet that the assailant, Sayfullo Saipov, entered the USA through the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, which awards visas to vetted individuals randomly selected from countries where there is a low rate of immigration to the US.

The latest version of the ban, which would bar most people from eight countries from entering the US, was blocked by two federal judges. The attacker got out of the truck, waving a pellet gun and a paint gun and was shot by a police officer, said the officials. "I will continue to follow developments closely", Trump said.

"You'll have to contact the White House regarding the President's tweet", said Homeland Security acting press secretary Tyler Houlton. But on Wednesday morning, he said his administration is fighting for "merit-based immigration, no more Democrat lottery systems".
