He exited the vehicle with two fake firearms. Seems like a suicide by police gone bad. He was taken into custody.

Hate how vehicles are now being used for terror. I hope self-driving cars hurry up now because I think this will only get worse.

Witnesses reported the suspect shouting allah 'akbar (God is great in Arabic). His attempt at either becoming a martyr or suicide by police failed. Condolences to all affected families and friends of those killed.

He already tweeted:

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

That doesn't sound like @realDonaldTrump to me. Sounds more like someone told him what to say. Melania also tweeted. Strikes me as controlled tweets.

Add this region, including Russia, to travel ban list. We must get serious on security of our people.

We must not allow ISIS to return, or enter, our country after defeating them in the Middle East and elsewhere. Enough!
