On Halloween in New York City, a man in a rented Home Depot truck plowed through the streets in lower Manhattan claiming the lives of at least eight innocent people. After authorities confirmed the incident was a Terrorist Attack, Donald Trump made sure to offer his thoughts.

Trump on NYC terror

In what was suppose to be an innocent and fun day in lower Manhattan quickly turned into horror when a truck made its way onto a bicycle path, injuring dozens, while killing eight as of press time. According to eyewitnesses, the driver quickly exited the vehicle with two guns on him, while reportedly shouting "Allahu Akbar," which translates to "God is great" in Arabic and is a common phrase used by Islamic terrorists.

The weapons turned out to reportedly be a paintball gun and a pellet gun, as law enforcement shot the suspected before taking him into custody. NBC News reports that their law enforcement sources decried the suspect as being in his mid-30s and having a "Middle Eastern appearance." In a news conference on Tuesday, Mayor Bill de Blasio described the incident as a "cowardly act of terror," with Gov. Andrew Cuomo vowing not to let the attack break the spirit of New York. Not long after being briefed, Donald Trump gave his thoughts during a tweet on October 31.

Taking to Twitter on Tuesday, Donald Trump wasted no time voicing his opinion on the apparent Islamic terrorist attack in New York City.

"In NYC, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person," Trump tweeted before, adding, "Law enforcement is following this closely." In conclusion, Trump wrote, "NOT IN THE U.S.A.!"

Donald Trump's remarks are similar to what he tweeted just last month when the worst mass shooting in American history took place in Las Vegas.

Stephen Paddock shot down from the 32nd floor of his hotel and killed 58 people, while injuring over 500 during a music festival. As expected, Trump's tweet didn't sit well with many of his critics.

Twitter reacts

Within seconds of posting his message to Twitter, Donald Trump faced immediate backlash in return, with some questioning why the president noted that the attack didn't happen in the United States when it clearly did.

"DJT, you'll be impeached if you don't resign...so, uh,...resign or don't resign. Either way, it's all gonna be good for the rest of us," one tweet read.

"Well it just happened in the USA so there's that," another tweet added.

"Thought you had to wait for all the facts before you make a statement??? And by the way, hundreds have been killed since Las Vegas, too USA," an additional tweet stated.

"WTF are you talking about?!?! This was in the USA!!!!" yet another social media user posted. "It’s called domestic terrorism and it occurs with alarming frequency in the U.S.A." a tweet pointed out. The negative reaction continued as the world waits on the latest update surrounding the New York City terrorist attack.
