Donald Trump’s First Reaction to 9/11 Attack is Making Rounds

Sep 13, 2017: As the world reminisced the 16th-anniversary of 9/11 attack, the horrific day in the timeline of terrorism, Donald Trump made the headlines but for all the wrong reasons.

The 9/11 attack on the World Trade Centre was harrowing for the world, but the way Donald Trump responded in the year of attack was not sympathetic to record.

Trump was speaking to a local TV station in 2001, WWOR, and when the host Alan Marcus, asked "Donald, you have one of the landmark buildings down in the Financial District, 40 Wall Street. Did you have any damage, or did you — what's happened down there?"

Trump responded, "I mean, 40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually before the World Trade Center the tallest, and then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, and now it's the tallest."
