Trump demands the death penalty for Uzbek terrorist who killed eight people in truck rampage after it emerges he had thousands of ISIS videos on his phone and asked to fly terror flag in his hospital

President Donald Trump called for prosecutors on Wednesday to seek the death penalty for Sayfullo Saipov, who mowed down more than a dozen innocent people on a New York City bike path on Tuesday.

‘NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!’ Trump tweeted.

The president on Wednesday seized on the deadly New York City truck attack to step up demands for stricter US immigration laws, asking Congress to end a visa program that let the Uzbek suspect into the country and saying he might send him to Guantanamo Bay.
