President-elect Donald Trump responded early Wednesday morning on Twitter to state that the attacker should never have been in the country in the first place.
ISIS is taking credit for the terrible stabbing attack at Ohio State University by a Somali refugee who should not have been in our country.

Artan, who was shot and killed on the scene by an Ohio State University police officer, rammed a group of pedestrians with his car, then began stabbing people with a butcher knife. Several were injured. He was of Somali descent and was a legal permanent resident of the United States, according to NBC News.
