""Donald Trump"" – Google News
Former President Donald Trump made what appeared to be a new claim on Wednesday about his involvement in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Trump – whose earlier “memories” of the events during and after September 11th were repeatedly questioned or debunked – recalled in an interview with the conservative Newsmax network the time when he was “two great firefighters” out of fear of one nearby buildings were in danger of collapsing.
“We heard creaking, I never forgot, it was, I believe, the United States Steel Building that was called then and it’s 50 stories and we heard creaking,” he said in the untold story.
“I said, ‘This building is going to collapse,’ and two big firefighters grabbed me and other people and they just moved out of this area,” Trump continued. “I never came down, but I’ve never heard a noise like this. And it was a scary situation, but the work they did was so incredible, the first responders. “

On September 11th himself, Trump falsely boasted in a television interview that his 40 Wall Street buildings are now the tallest in downtown Manhattan.
“40 Wall Street was actually the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually before the World Trade Center was the tallest – and then when they built the World Trade Center it was known as the second tallest. “he said.” And now it’s the highest. “
Trump, who is spending this year’s 20th anniversary of the attacks having a pay-per-view boxing match with his son Donald Trump Jr, dispatched a crew of 100 to help with the cleanup, both claims that have been questioned by officials.
In 2015, the ex-president insistently claimed at an election rally that he had seen “thousands upon thousands” of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating the news of the attacks.
“I watched the World Trade Center collapse. And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people cheered as the building collapsed, ”he lied. “Thousands of people cheered.”
