Hillary is relevant because if Trump hadn't won, the person who actually lied more, broke laws and colluded with Rusdians would be in office.

Some of you people with TDS are simply pathetic!

As it turns out, Donald Trump sent some of his own constructions workers to the site to help AND he walked around in the rubble and some of the dangerous areas. But you people with your TDS just keep bashing the man. You have no idea what kind of man he is yet you insist upon labeling him with your delusional ideals. How pathetic!

To learn more about Trump’s new Rose Garden story, we interviewed Richard Alles, a New York Fire Department battalion chief on Sept. 11, 2001, who was sitting in the audience July 29. He retired as deputy chief in 2017 after 38 years with the department, and he is now director of 9/11 community affairs for the law firm Barasch and McGarry, which represents clients seeking compensation from the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund.

Alles said he had no knowledge of Trump being at the site or sending 100 or so workers there to help.

If Trump had sent a crew of 100 workers, "there would be a record of it. Everybody worked under direct supervision of the police and fire department and the joint commander for emergency services. Is there a chance he was ever down there by himself and I didn’t know it? It’s possible, but I know of no one who ever witnessed him there."
The claim that you are praising Trump for has not been confirmed. In fact, quite the opposite.

If Trump had done this, he would have gone on about it for ages, as "what a true American" he is. He certainly didn't waste anytime to talk about himself having the tallest building right after 9/11.

Where are all of these workers to verify that they were indeed down there, and paid by Donald?

You don't need a source for jokes. Links to the twitter would be the source in this case.

Nothing but hate and serious TDS on this thread. All for a man I didn't even vote for and won't vote for in the upcoming election. But unlike those with the serious TDS, I harbor no ill will feelings for President Donald Trump. He is a great man who has accomplished many great things in his life. One thing is certain, he has accomplished far more than any of us on CD.

Some people say I did more to save the victims of 9/11 than the first responders. I donít say that, but some people do.

Meanwhile, Dolt Cortez can reference the men we put on Mars and planted a flag... and you're all good with that.

No double standard there, right? Of course not.

Trump Lost History


The man is truly a goofball, the humor is an appropriate way to bring out how ridiculous he has been.

And yes, ridiculous means 'deserving of ridicule'. Trump will be ridiculed long after he is out of office, and long after he has gone to his maker. Future generations will read about him in amazement and also ridicule our generation for having had the poor judgment to choose him.

So Trump lied about sending his own workers to help out at Ground Zero. I'm shocked. Shocked.
