The horrific attack which took place this Tuesday in New York City, and ultimately ended up taking the lives of several people while injuring a dozen more, was without a doubt a slap of reality as well as a harsh wake up call to both Republicans, Democrats as well as the American people in general, to take a stand against these incidents, starting with the Diversity Lottery Program.
Just a day after the horrific incident and after it was found out that the 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov had conducted the incident “in the name of ISIS,” the President Donald Trump and his administration immediately took the cue, and got down to business, with the commander-in-chief even taking it to Twitter this morning to break down the announcement.

From what can be seen in the video released on the official Twitter account of Fox News, the president explained the entire situation which took place just yesterday, further adding how the entire nation is praying for the victims and their families which are going through perhaps the hardest time of their lives.
And while his administration will be investigating the background of the man who committed the crime, the POTUS revealed that in the meanwhile, starting today, he will begin with the process of terminating the Diversity Lottery Program, by asking Congress to immediately initiate work to get rid of the program.
Instead of people coming in the U.S. by being randomly chosen, the POTUS explained how he and his administration prefer people of ‘merit’ to come into the nation.
