President Donald Trump called for the New York City terror suspect to get the death penalty in a late-night tweet Wednesday just hours after Sayfullo Saipov was charged with providing support to ISIS and violence and destruction of motor vehicles.

ABC News reports, Trump raised the possibility of sending the alleged perpetrator to Guantanamo Bay prison. The White House press secretary said the administration considers him to be an "enemy combatant."

As an "enemy combatant," Saipov, the suspect in the attack, could face an altered interrogation and prosecution process.
