US President Donald Trump called Wednesday for the man charged with carrying out a New York City truck rampage that killed eight people to be put to death.

"But on Thursday Trump dropped his threat, tweeting that while he "would love to send NYC terrorist to Guantanamo but statistically that process takes much longer" than handling his trial through the USA court system". Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to the Islamic State jihadist group.

Decrying the attack in NY on Tuesday that killed eight people, Trump has called the suspect, an Uzbekistan immigrant identified by authorities as Sayfullo Saipov, an "animal" who should face the death penalty.

Mr Trump tweeted on Thursday that there is "also something appropriate" about keeping him "in the home of the frightful crime he committed". "Should move fast. DEATH PENALTY!"

Trump also said he was considering sending Saipov to the US military prison at Guantanamo Bay, but indicated Thursday that the process would be too complex and time-consuming.

The President on Twitter stated that Sayfullo Saipov, a Florida resident who came to the United States in 2010, should get a death sentence after alledgedly killing 8 and injuring 12 in NY on Tuesday.

"Send him to Gitmo - I would certainly consider that", Trump, using a nickname for Guantanamo, said when asked about that possibility by one reporter.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the surviving member of a pair of ethnic Chechen brothers who killed three people and injured more than 260 when they bombed the 2013 Boston Marathon in an attack inspired by the al Qaeda militant group, was sentenced to death in 2015.

Investigators found thousands of ISIS-related propaganda images and videos on Saipov's cellphone, the complaint said.

Investigators said Wednesday that the man who mowed down cyclists and pedestrians in NY the day before had confessed to acting in the name of IS and said that he "felt good" about the killings. A law enforcement official said Kadirov was a friend of Saipov's and may not have any role in the case. The terrorist drove a truck on a bike lane hitting pedestrians and cyclists on Tuesday, murdering eight people and injuring 12.

After he was shot in the stomach by 28-year-old NYPD officer Bryan Nash, police found an IS flag and a note saying "IS lives forever" in the van. Public defense attorney David Patton was appointed to represent him. It was not immediately clear where he would be held.
