(Newser) – Court papers filed against New York City terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov Wednesday stated that he asked for an ISIS flag in his hospital room—news that outraged President Trump, among others. "NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room," Trump tweeted Wednesday night. "He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!"

He's being held without bail on charges that could carry the death penalty. In other developments:
