Trump’s Reaction To 9/11 As Private Citizen Says Everything About His Love For America


President Trump gave a very moving speech
on 9/11 yesterday. It was the kind of heartfelt, patriotic speech
we have not heard in many years. Trump was in New York City when 9/11 happened
and it deeply moved him. Trump’s reaction to the 9/11 terrorist attacks
while he was still just a private citizen, says everything about his love for this country. After those horrific attacks on the World
Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, Donald Trump campaigned to have the structures rebuilt
with one major modification. Long before Trump would stun the world and
become President of the United States, he desperately wanted to rebuild the World Trade
Center one story higher to rub the faces of the terrorists in the greatness of America. In 2005, Trump wanted to make a strong statement
that would show our enemies that we would not back down as a nation. President Trump ardently opposed the Freedom
Tower that is now a fixture on the infamous Manhattan skyline. “If we rebuild the World Trade Center in
the form of a skeleton — Freedom Tower — the terrorists win,” Trump said in a speech. And he was right. I feel that way and I bet a large part of
America does too. “It doesn’t represent what we want to
have represented. What I want to see built is the World Trade
Center stronger and maybe a story taller, and that’s what everybody wants … We should
have the World Trade Center bigger and better” he said later in an interview. That is vintage Trump and that is the American
spirit in a nutshell. It took many years to even get the Freedom
Tower built and that is not the American way. We built the Empire State Building in just
over a year… there’s no excuse for taking this long to
rebuild. And in the end, as Trump said, it should have
been bigger and better. That’s the American way. And even though Trump’s desires and statements
on rebuilding the Twin Towers are out there, the media keeps saying that Trump lies about
9/11. If you listened to Trump’s speech yesterday,
you know in your heart that Trump cares very deeply about what happened that day. Which is more than you can say for a number
of Democrats and the media out there. In 2015, Business Insider had this to say
about Trump wanting to rebuild the towers: “In the aftermath of the September 11, 2001,
terrorist attacks, which occurred 14 years ago Friday, real-estate mogul Donald Trump
became the most prominent backer of a plan to rebuild Manhattan’s World Trade Center. Trump, the current front-runner in the Republican
presidential primary, lent his support to the effort in 2005. Among other things, he made media appearances
during which he blasted the proposed Freedom Tower that was eventually built on the WTC
site as “disgusting.” “It doesn’t represent what we want to
have represented. What I want to see built is the World Trade
Center stronger and maybe a story taller, and that’s what everybody wants,” Trump
said in an appearance on MSNBC. “It’s just terrible what’s happened
in New York. … We should have the World Trade Center
bigger and better.” “The proposal to rebuild the Twin Towers,
which were destroyed on 9/11, was the brainchild of structural engineer Ken Gardner. He created a plan to rebuild the buildings
five stories higher with more modern safety features. Gardner’s proposal also included a 9/11
memorial, made with panels from the original towers. “In an interview with Business Insider Friday,
Gardner said Trump reached out to him after seeing his model for the project, which he
dubbed “Twin Towers II.” Gardner had been discussing the plan on MSNBC
and Trump encountered his model when he went on the channel for an unrelated interview. “He just realized, like most of the public
did at the time, that that was the solution,” Gardner said of Trump. “It was just based on, in Israel, whenever
a building was destroyed by terrorists, they put it back. And in this case, since the building was as
old as it was, we were putting it back, but a modern version of it.’” That leaves no doubt about what President
Trump wanted and what he thought would be the right course of action here. He wanted to make a bold statement that America
can’t be defeated and comes back bigger and better every time. The Israelis and Trump have it right… our
leftists have it dead wrong.
