US President, Donald Trump, has called for the New York terrorist to receive the death penalty as punishment for the most deadly terror attack in the US since 9/11.

“Would love to send the NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer than going through the Federal system…”

“…There is also something appropriate about keeping him in the home of the horrible crime he committed. Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!”

Eight people are feared dead after a truck mounted a bicycle path in lower Manhattan on Tuesday afternoon, mowing down cyclists and runners while shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’.

New York City Police confirmed the truck, which appears to be a Home Depot rental van, drove onto a pedestrian and cycle path alongside the West Side Highway at full speed, hitting several people.

The truck then hit another vehicle, reported to be a school bus.

According to witnesses and law enforcement officials, the attacker screamed ‘Allah Akbar’ which means ‘God is Great’.

It is believed to be an Islamic terror attack.

Singer Josh Groban also tweeted after hearing ‘gun shots’ while out walking his dog.

‘Oh my god I just heard gunshots and ran with my dog. Downtown. F***,’ he said.
