Donald Trump Says NYC Terror Suspect Should Be Sent To Gitmo, Asks Congress To End Diversity Visa Lottery

Trump supports NYC terror suspect sent to Gitmo

“Send him to Gitmo,” Trump reportedly said before he attended a Cabinet meeting at the White House on Wednesday. “I would certainly consider that… Send him to Gitmo.”

“[Trump] certainly would support it if he felt like that was the best move,” she said.
