Marjorie Taylor Greene he disagreed with her impeachment articles against Biden Biden, Trudeau agree to meet next month Trump planned to oust acting AG to overturn Georgia election results: report MORE said it's a "sad, sad situation" that the New York bombing suspect will likely receive "amazing" hospitalization and be represented by and "outstanding" lawyer. 


Speaking from Fort Myers, Fla. Monday, Trump predicted that Ahmad Khan Rahami will receive a lesser sentence as the case drags for years through the court system. 

Rahami was arrested Monday and is believed to be responsible for the explosion in Manhattan on Saturday night that left 29 people injured. 

"We have caught this evil thug that planted the bombs," Trump said. 

"But the bad part — now we will give him amazing hospitalization. He will be taken care of by some of the best doctors in the world. He will be given a fully modern and updated hospital room. And he'll probably even have room service knowing the way our country is," Trump said. 

"And on top of that, he will be represented by an outstanding lawyer." 

He went on to say he thinks Rahami will get off easy. 

"His case will go through the various court systems for years, and in the end, people will forget, and his punishment will not be what it once would have been. What a sad, sad situation," Trump said. 

"We must have speedy and fair trials, and we must deliver a just and very fair punishment to these people." 

Trump also said the U.S. must use "lawful" interrogation techniques to get more information about future plots. 

"We must also use whatever lawful methods are available to obtain information from the apprehended suspect to get information before it's no longer timely," he said. 

"And Congress should pass measures to ensure that foreign enemy combatants are treated as such. These are enemies. These are combatants, and we have to be tough, and we have to be strong."
