Here are the Top 18 Times Trump Was Inappropriate and/or Just Flat-Out Lying about September 11th
Mediaite has an almost “must read” article (Linked Below) out on the top 18 times that Trump was inappropriate and/or lied about 9/11. It is quite a jaw-dropping list as would be expected. When it comes to a topic like 9/11, it is so important and so emotional, Trump would, of course, involve himself in all kinds of lies. We are going to set out out the ones we find to be the most revealing while honoring fair use rules and encouraging one to read the entire list.
Obviously, the list begins where he began, his first public words after the incident, he talked about himself while lying. His boast was both inappropriate and untrue:
“Forty Wall Street actually was the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan,” Trump said, adding “and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest, and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second tallest. And now it’s the tallest.”
Donald Trump’s reaction on 9/11 – on the actual day – was to say he used to have the 2nd tallest tower in NY and it was now the tallest

Who among us normal people could possibly care which of the remaining buildings were the tallest and bring it up during such an inappropriate time? Very few.
The racism always runs deep:
Trump’s hatred of Muslims was evident long before his presidential campaign, as in this March 31, 2011 interview with future disgraced Fox News host Bill O’Reilly. Asked if there is “a Muslim problem in the world,” Trump made a super-racist contrast. “I don’t notice Swedish people knocking down the World Trade Center. There certainly is,” Trump told O’Reilly.
Is there any country on Earth known to be more “white” than Sweden?
And then the tweet in 2013, the first one of which Trump extended his graces to all the “losers” out there:
“@realDonaldTrump: I would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.”

Again, there is nothing like 9/11, such an emotional date, for Trump to let out his thoughts about himself and his rivalry with others. We would like to add this year’s statement in which Trump spent 24 seconds out of a 1:44 minute video, talking about 9/11. The rest of the statement is spent insulting Biden and the Afghanistan pull-out. Talk about inappropriate, a former president criticizing the current one and blaming him for the deaths of 13 servicemen and doing it on 9/11.
It is a great article.
