it's a full o. south of waived his right to silence and told authorities he was inspired to kill by so-called islamic states online propaganda well meanwhile mr trump has called for a capital punishment for side of tweeting he killed eight people and should get the death penalty now the family and friends of the eight victims have been holding vigils in their memory. earlier i spoke to our washington correspondent carsten phenomena and i asked him if trump's tweets on the death penalty could jeopardize a fair trial for siple. absolutely or at least that's what i would argue if i was the defense attorney in that trial and donald trump is the head of the executive the same branch of government that is investigating and prosecuting the suspect of course the verdict eventually the verdict will come from
