The Afghan-born, 28 year old Ahmad Khan Rahami, who was charged with attempted murder on Monday after he was wounded in a gunfight with the police is now receiving medical treatment and legal representation after his arrest. The Republican nominee for the President of the US, Donald Trump deplored for the same. Trump said that it was a “sad situation” and underscores the country’s weak national security.

In the meantime, the Democratic rival Hillary Clinton claimed at a news conference outside New York City that Trump’s rhetoric only helped terrorist groups.

“The kinds of rhetoric and language that Mr Trump has used is giving aid and comfort to our adversaries,” Clinton told reporters.

She added that she was the only candidate equipped with the experience of being part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield.

Trump hearing this, backfired in a statement saying that “a Clinton presidency would only lead to more attacks on our homeland and more innocent Americans being hurt and killed.”

Later at a campaign rally in Fort Myers, Florida, Trump withdrew his ideas on Ahmad Khan Rahami’s treatment for gunshot wounds and his legal representation as it is his constitutional right under the Fifth Amendment.

However, Trump added that “the bad part, now we will give him amazing hospitalisation. 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.”

He also expressed that any punishment would be too lenient on Rahami, who is yet to be charged in connection to the New York and New Jersey bombings. “What a sad situation” said Trump.
