President Donald Trump walked back comments he made Wednesday about the prospect of sending the alleged New York City terrorist attacker to Guantanamo Bay.

Thursday's tweet was Trump's second call for the death penalty, despite the fact the suspect was just charged Wednesday and is afforded due process.

But earlier Wednesday, during comments he made to the press prior to a Cabinet meeting, Trump opened up the possibility of sending Sayfullo Saipov to the military prison in Cuba.

"Send him to Gitmo — I would certainly consider that," Trump told reporters.
