Trump on 9/11

On September 11, as other Americans were rushing to aid the victims of the terror attacks, Trump was bragging that the fall of the World Trade Center left his own building as the tallest in downtown Manahattan. Esquire reports:

When he was asked about potential damage to 40 Wall Street, his 71-story building that was
positioned blocks away from the towers, he took the opportunity to share how "amazing" the news was:

"40 Wall Street actually was 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 became known as the second-tallest. And now it's the tallest."

Truly a new level, even for Trump. A man who uses the word "amazing" while describing the greatest tragedy in our nation, who values his building's height over the loss of thousands of lives—this is our Republican nominee.
