The United States, U.S President, Donald Trump has declared that individuals convicted of terrorism charges, deserve “the strongest penalty allowed by law,” including the death penalty.
In what authorities have described as a terrorism-related attack, a man detonated a bomb inside a New York City subway passageway near the Port Authority Bus Terminal on Monday, injuring himself and three persons.
The New York Police Department identified the Port Authority attack suspect as 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a Bangladeshi immigrant who lived in New York’s borough of Brooklyn and used to work as a taxi driver and as an electrical.
Reacting to attack in a statement issued on Tuesday, Trump said, “those convicted of engaging in acts of terror deserve the strongest penalty allowed by law, including the death penalty in appropriate cases.
“America should always stand firm against terrorism and extremism, ensuring that our great institutions can address all evil acts of terror.”
