He most probably watched on TV…..
(Can ANYONE image Donald Trump down on ‘the pile’ getting his hands dirty?)
While signing the bill to keep the 9/11 government victim assistance program funded he mentioned something about being ‘there’?
Trump has made similar evidence-free claims about his whereabouts on September 11th before. On the campaign trail in 2016, he went even further than he did on Monday and said during a rally that he “helped a little bit” with efforts to clear the rubble. But not only is there no evidence that Trump participated in recovery efforts, there’s also no evidence he spent time near ground zero in the week following the attack.
Snopes investigated Trump’s 2016 claim by speaking to officials from the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and construction demolitions experts who were at Ground Zero in the hours and days after the 9/11 attacks. Nobody could recall even seeing Trump at the site. Snopes also details how Trump has a history of exaggerating the role his company played in the recovery efforts.
During a 2015 rally, Trump claimed he watched the 9/11 attacks from a window in Trump Tower.
“Many people jumped and I witnessed it, I watched that,” he said.
There’s just one problem — Trump Tower is more than four miles away from ground zero, so that claim too appears to be an exaggeration at best….
