“We have to get much smarter,” Trump said. “And we have to get much less politically correct. We’re so politically correct that we’re afraid to do anything.”

His response to the terrorist attack, which included blaming Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) for aiding in the creation of programs that allowed people like New York attacker to enter the country, contrast with his response to the Las Vegas shooting.

The President’s White House aides and Republican allies said it was not appropriate to bring up debates over gun-control laws in the wake of the L.A. shooting.

Trump said he would move to direct the State Department to increase “extreme vetting” of immigrants.
