Washington - President Donald Trump is railing against the Islamic State group after a man drove a rented truck onto a bike path in New York City, killing eight people.

Trump says in a tweet, “We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere.”

He’s declaring, “Enough!”

New York City’s mayor has labeled the Tuesday attack in Lower Manhattan a cowardly “act of terror.” But local officials have made no mention publicly of the Islamic State group’s possible involvement.


A law enforcement official who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity said witnesses told police the attacker yelled, “Allahu akbar!” as he got out of the truck.

Trump is also offering “thoughts, condolences and prayers” to the victims and their families, saying, “God and your country are with you!”

President Donald Trump is vowing his administration’s “full support” to New York City’s police department in the wake of what he’s calling a “cowardly” terrorist attack.

Trump says in a statement that, “Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of today’s terrorist attack in New York City and their families.”

Trump is also expressing thanks to the first responders “who stopped the suspect and rendered immediate aid to the victims of this cowardly attack.” He says, “These brave men and women embody the true American spirit of resilience and courage.”

Trump’s statement comes after a series of tweets in which he declared “Enough!” and suggested the Islamic State group might be involved.
