Washington : Denouncing the suspect as an “animal,” President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged tougher immigration measures based on skills and other merits rather than a lottery after the deadly truck attack in New York City.

Trump noted during a Cabinet meeting that the driver in Tuesday’s attack entered the country through the “Diversity Visa Lottery Program” and called on congress to “immediately” begin working to eliminate the program, which applies to countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S. Trump added, “We have to get much tougher, much smarter, and less politically correct.”
