This follows a conversation with the broadcasters who ask him about the fact that his buildings are well known landmarks and tourist attractions and that they are now targets for flying bombs. If you are now the owner of the tallest building in NYC, wouldn't you be a bit concerned that more madmen are going to seek out your building to destroy?

Here is a link that includes the actual audio/visual:

Point is he had to bring it back about himself even that day....

In the olden days Presidents had to travel to disaster sites to truly assess the damage.

Jump to 2018 -- communication systems have improved greatly. Presidents don't need to travel to the site to assess the damage but they go for photo ops and to boost morale.

Fine and dandy -- it's what politicians do.

I think it is a misuse of federal funds to send a President into a disaster area for this kind of a show.

But maybe the victims feel differently.

Trump's lack of empathy.........

What's that old saying you always hear?

But if Trump didn't go maybe we wouldn't get nuggets of information like that Florence was the wettest of storms from a water standpoint --- words of wisdom that will go down in history.

No?

Well, then, don't presume you know what really happened.
I don't believe the poster was making any presumption about what was said whatsoever and if you had taken the time to consider the post a little more carefully, you wouldn't have made a presumption either.

I'm guessing you didn't listen to it. Trump was ASKED about his other buildings.

~ sigh~ NATO. Train advise assist.

Once again, where is the video of this being said? Are so many blindly following this because the media said it happened?
As of this morning I still have not found evidence of this being so.
