Do you agree with Trump? He isn’t very happy with the way we treat terrorists. Check out his speech below.
Donald Trump spoke to a crowd in Florida on Monday telling them that under U.S. law, bombing suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami would receive ‘amazing’ care while hospitalized.
Trump claimed that Rahami would even ‘get room service’ while he is treated for gunshot wounds, which he received on Monday while being taken into custody.
He also lambasted the fact Rahami, an American citizen, will be represented by a lawyer when he is tried on attempted murder charges.
‘Now we will give him amazing hospitalization. He will be taken care of by some of the best doctors in the world,’ Trump said in Fort Myers, Florida.
Trump continued by saying Rahami ‘will be given a fully modern and updated hospital room, and he’ll probably even have room service, knowing the way our country is.
‘On top of that, he will be represented by an outstanding lawyer.’
Because Rahami is a U.S. citizen, he is afforded his constitutional right to due process as stated and guaranteed by the Fifth Amendment.
Rahami faces five counts of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and two gun charges, authorities said Monday afternoon. Bail has been set at $5.2 million and he remains in hospital.
Federal charges in the bombings have yet to be filed.
The 28-year-old was arrested around 11am on Monday, after a bar owner in Linden, New Jersey, found him passed out in the waterproofed lobby entrance to his business and called 911.
When police arrived on the scene, Rahami is said to have brandished a weapon and started shooting at the cops.
Officers shot Rahami in the right shoulder and leg, and he was taken from the scene in an ambulance, handcuffed to a stretcher.
Police released Rahami’s picture Monday morning, saying he was wanted for questioning in connection to the Saturday bombings in New York City and Seaside Park, New Jersey, as well as the foiled bombing of the Elizabeth, New Jersey train station on Sunday.
Law enforcement say it was fingerprints left behind on an unexploded pressure cooker bomb in Manhattan that led them to him.
Twenty-nine people were injured when another bomb placed a few blocks away was detonated Saturday night.
‘His case will go through the various court systems for years. And in the end, people will forget, and his punishment won’t be what it once would have been,’ Trump said. ‘What a sad situation.’
South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham echoed Trump’s sentiments and asked the Obama administration to suspend Rahami’s constitutional rights.
