Trump Won't Name Any of the 'Hundreds of Friends' He Says Died on 9/11

This Article is from 2016 during the Primary Campaign. but the questions have never been answered and with his attacks on ilhan omar over 9/11 it should be brought up again (the media should have demanded answers back then).


<Two days after Donald Trump claimed that he “lost hundreds of friends” at the World Trade Center as a result of the 9/11 attack, his campaign continued to ignore a Daily Beast request that he name even one.

By his math, Trump is trying to tell us that at least one in 10 of the 2,983 who died on 9/11 were his friends.

The cop also wonders why nobody seems to recall seeing Trump at the seemingly endless funerals that followed the attack. The FDNY, which had lost 343 members, had so many funerals and memorials in those dark days that the city asked citizens to attend them to fill the churches.

Trump was also on record saying that none of his properties were damaged in the attack.

But, as the New York Daily News has reported, Trump accepted a $150,000 federal grant that was part of a program meant to assist small businesses affected by 9/11.>

1. I'm listening to the Weekly List podcast, by Amy Siskind.

I highly recommend it, you wouldn't believe how much we miss in the chaos.
During his first year he told an average of 4 lies per day. He is now telling an average of 22 lies a day. With all the chaos so much is being missed.

23. He lies about everything now. Even stupid stuff.

No one ever calls him on it. It's beyond ridiculous.

Just recently, he lied about his dad being born in a "beautiful town" in Germany. I mean, why even? That would make both of his parents immigrants and him an "anchor baby".

2. He is such a shameless liar.

He only saw 9/11 as another chance to get publicity for himself.

First of all, he had no friends. Ever. Let alone any who perished during 9/11. He is such a disgusting opportunist.

4. I hadn't heard about lots of Russians dying on 9/11.

I did hear about Don bragging about now having the tallest building in NYC on the same day the towers fell.

11. On Sept. 11, 2001 Chump only cared about one thing

HIS building was now the tallest in lower Manhattan because the Twin Towers came down. He actually went on the air to say that to the world.

18. Trumpy would have trouble naming two friends, let alone hundreds.

Unless he is counting ex wives and girl friends as friends.

And we all know what Stormy Daniels thinks of him.

others need to do the same.
