US President Donald Trump has ordered to step up the US vetting program after the recent terrorist attack in New York.

Trump said on Wednesday that he ordered the Department of Homeland Security to tighten the refugee admission program, Sputnik reports.

"I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting Program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Late on Tuesday, a man drove a truck into a crowd in New York City’s lower Manhattan, killing eight people and injuring 11. The attacker was shot by the police and taken to a hospital.
