Skip to comments.Old Phone Interview Of Donald Trump From 9/11/2001 Re-Surface And Sparks More Controversy (Video)

On September 11, 2001, two planes were flown into the famous twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City. 19 terrorists associated with the Islamic extremist group al-Qaeda hijacked four airplanes and carried out suicide attacks against targets in the United States. The third plane hit the Pentagon just outside Washington, DC, and the fourth plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. Over 3,000 people were killed during the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The 9/11 attack triggered major US initiatives to combat terrorism.
19 years ago at 8.45 am on a Tuesday morning, an American Airlines Boeing 767 loaded with 20,000 gallons of jet fuel crashed into the north of the World Trade Centre. The 80th floor of the 110-story skyscraper was left burning and thousands of people lost their lives. Hundreds of people got trapped on the higher floors. 18 minutes later, a second Boeing 767 -United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the south tower of WTC and burnt a hole on the 60th floor.
9/11 attack was reportedly financed by the al-Qaeda terrorist organization of Saudi fugitive Osama bin Laden.
But Donald Trump had something more to add back in 2001. In an old interview from 9/11/2001 the real-estate mogul Donald Trump was asked about the attacks from a local TV station during a phone interview, he said that there has to be something more than just fuel, he claimed that there was probably some sort of explosives because the World Trade Centre would never collapse from the hits of the planes only. He said that he talked with the man who constructed the building
Maybe this old interview will spark more controversies but President Trump definitely knows something more about 9/11.
Last year during an interview with ABCs George Stephanopoulos Trump said that he knows who was behind the al-Qaeda terror attacks on the US in September 2001 and added that Iraq did not knock down the World Trade Centre.
It was not Iraq, the president told ABC News. It were other people. And I think I know who the other people were. And you might also.
President Trump has made several controversial remarks about the attacks on the Twin Towers.
During a Republican primary debate, the then-candidate blamed Bill Clinton and George Bush for not killing Osama bin Laden.
He said: The World Trade Centre came down because Bill Clinton didnt kill Osama bin Laden when he had the chance to kill him. And George Bush by the way, George Bush had the chance, also, and he didnt listen to the advice of his CIA.
After the attacks, Mr. Trump claimed thousands and thousands of people were cheering the day the towers fell and later added that the cheers came from areas of New Jersey with large Arab populations.
Trump mentioned that the bomb was in the basement and said the foundation was the weakest point.
And the building still stood.
I've seen pictures of plane noses indented after striking birds.
What if the 9/11 Truthers were right?
I think he knows a lot more than the average person about a LOT of things. He’s probably been privy for decades to info that most of us can barely imagine.
Who says the only connections of importance are in the world of politics? :-)
The second hit tower collapsed first because it was hit lower down and the compromised part of the structure was holding up more weight.
I see no problems with what he said.
Anyone being interviewed on the day of the attack could have only been speculating.
Not really, it's an extremely ignorant one. However, considering this was an interview immediately post 9/11, I think you and Joy Behar are on the same wave length.......If it's any consolation, Rosie O'Donnell and Woodie Harrelson are on your side..........ROFLMAO!
“Does Trump know more than the average person about 9/11? That’s a really good question!”
What people don’t know about Trump is as a construction magnate, Trump needs to know the intelligence on the ground where he is looking to build. He needs to know local politics, who the players are and what has been politically trending.
Trump knows more about intelligence than most people in the intelligence community.
And you knew that as early as 9/12/2001?
Nobody at the time thought that a fire could take the whole building down.
It looked like a perfectly planned and executed demolition job. Vertical drop of both buildings all the way to the ground.
Yes, but wouldn’t those planes have been going at a slower speed than the ones that hit the Twin Towers? Just think of the difference in the damage to a brick wall that’s hit by something going 20 mph vs the same object going 80 mph.
And the Empire State building is much more lighter than the WTC was.
Nothing happened except broken windows, of course. There wasn't even a loss of life.
If you listened to Trump's interview, he mentioned that the WTC was built like a can. It was built from the outside.
Dozens of other skyscrapers had fires that didn't bring down the building. The WTC was the first in history to have collapsed after a fire.
And the way the Towers fell was similar to a controlled implosion or demolition.
I'm not a Truther. I'm just saying there are a lot of questions that need to be answered. And I predict Trump will tell the world what really happened on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
German TV Interview with Trump on 911
Hard to find anything offensive
Trump was correct that past US weak responses to terror ( Reagan and Clinton) figured into the planning of 911 by KSM. Info provided to debriefers
If the Dems want to chase this rabbit then they are welcome to it.
And you have to remember that WTC 7 collapsed, and nothing crashed into it.
An automobile is a much more solid object than an airplane.
I cannot account for all of the physics, but airplanes dent when struck by birds because their skin is thin aluminum (or composite, now). The burning jet fuel, IIRC, is hot enough to melt unguarded steel. The trade center did not wrap the structural steel in asbestos, like buildings before it, due to the asbestos concerns.
If you throw a grapefruit at a glass and steel wall at 100mph, it will do much less damage than a baseball thrown at the same speed.
“And I predict Trump will tell the world what really happened on the 20th anniversary of 9/11.”
If he knows what “really happened” then why doesn’t he tell us now?
