As tragedy struck the city of New York on the 9th September 2001, everyone was praying for the families of the fallen, all except one man. The future president of the United States, Donald J Trump would go on to brag about his building being the tallest in lower Manhattan.
Donald Trump’s Strange Reactions
Twenty-two years after 9/11, we uncover Donald Trump’s disrespectful and bizarre response to the tragic events.
A Peculiar Phone Call
On September 11, 2001, then-future President Trump made a peculiar call to WWOR TV station amidst the chaos.
Focusing on Building Heights
Trump shifted his attention to the height of one of his properties, claiming it was now the tallest building in lower Manhattan, “when they built the World Trade Centre, it (Trump Towers) became known as the second tallest. And now it’s the tallest.”
Trump’s Misleading Statement
During the call, Trump asserted, “40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan.” But was this claim accurate?
A Look Back
Multiple fact-checks later revealed that Trump’s statement was far from the truth. The Wall Street building was not the tallest in lower Manhattan in the 1970s or after 2001.
A Day of Tragedy
On the day of Trump’s interview, the Twin Towers collapsed, and nearly 3,000 people died in the devastating attacks by Al Qaeda terrorists.
Trump’s Unusual Focus
Despite the gravity of the situation, Trump’s attention seemed strangely diverted from the tragic events unfolding.
An Unconventional Complaint
During the interview, Trump expressed his disappointment about the closure of the New York Stock Exchange, revealing his disrespectful choice of concerns.
Trump’s Eyewitness Account
The interview began with Trump describing his firsthand experience of witnessing part of the attacks from his window.
The Shocking View
Trump recounted seeing a massive explosion from his window, which overlooked the World Trade Center, and expressed his disbelief, “I have a window that looks directly at the World Trade Center and I saw this huge explosion.”
A Familiar Sight
For years, Trump had enjoyed a view of both the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center, but now, he found himself gazing at an empty skyline, “I couldn’t believe it,” he said.
The Impact of 9/11
Donald Trump’s peculiar reactions during this interview provide a unique glimpse into the immediate aftermath of the tragic 9/11 attacks.
While the nation grappled with the devastating loss, Trump’s unusual focus on property heights and the stock exchange raised questions about his priorities.
A Glimpse of History
Trump’s words on that fateful day remain a peculiar footnote in the history of 9/11 and the reactions it elicited.
As we look back on 9/11, we remember the tragic loss of lives that occurred on this day.
