Donald Trump's Upsetting Comparison To His Own Building Just Hours After The Tragic 9/11 Incident
For the people of America, the 9/11 incident in 2001 is the most tragic to this date. Destruction of the tall sturdy building, World Trade Centre, turned it into nothing but rubbles. But it's unbelievable that some people, such as Donald Trump, considered this happening to be favorable to their business.
The unproven claims of Mr. Trump that he helped the survivors
Two days after the unfortunate terrorist attack, he appeared on site to support the victims. According to the interview with Truther TV, he said:
My workers took the task at hand and tried to unbury the victims inside pockets of rubble.
He said that he helped to rescue the survivors, but his claim of any assistance is not proved.
The 'My Building Is Now The Tallest' remark
As absurd as it sounds, Donald Trump sees this event as an advantage to him. He was a high-flying businessman and socialite, and his building was the tallest in downtown Manhattan. That is, until WTC was built.
During a phone interview with Fox 5 News, he excitedly made the following statement:
My building, 40-Wall Street, had become the second known tallest building, and now it’s the tallest.
The interviewer, Robert Blackmon, was stunned by Trump’s choice of words. Even in the middle of such chaos, he couldn’t help touting one of his buildings.
Trump's election as the President of the U.S.
Donald Trump was judged worldwide on his baffling remarks about 9/11, and media keeps reminding us how insensitive he was about the whole situation. There were doubts as to why was such a man voted to be The President?
17 years since Donald Trump went on air to brag that he owned the tallest building in New York because the Twin Tower had just collapsed. This line alone should have made him unelectable. #911Day https://t.co/pQjehWdoKF— JOHN NICOLSON (@MrJohnNicolson) September 11, 2018
It’s 9/11 and there are lots of things we should #neverforget. One thing I will never forget is that time HOURS after the 9/11 attacks when Donald Trump went on TV and bragged about then having the tallest building in New York...— Krown City King (@KrownCityKing) September 11, 2018
NEVER FORGET what the sociopathic, egotistical @realDonaldTrump said 17 years ago on Sept 11, 2001: “It was an amazing phone call, my building used to be the second tallest building when the WTC was around, now it’s the tallest!” #NotMyPresident— Jackie Beat (@JACKIEBEAT) September 12, 2018
I’ll never forget Trump lying about how he donated money to the victims of 9/11, or how he put up people at 40 Wall Street. Both lies. I’ll never forget how he went on radio that day bragging about now having the tallest building in nyc . This is the Man u follow. Shame on you.— Paula Danylevich (@PaulaDanylevich) September 12, 2018
They will never forget Donald's sentiments, but would you?
