There is a huge difference between "thousands" and "some pockets of 20-30 here and there." If Trump's supporters can't see that, they have an issue. His "general point" is very different given that discrepancy. Yes there were supporters, which is so sick, but don't greatly exaggerate it, making a city and even state look bad.

I don't like Hillary. I also don't particularly like Trump though I do like some of what he has to say. Just not this. He is lying when he says he saw thousands. It's an outright lie, and if people can't see that I can't help you.

Moooooooove those goalposts, Happy. First insinuate that anyone who questions Trump's outrageous statements does so because they support demonstrations on 9/11, and then change the focus to what Palestinians halfway across the world--as in, nowhere near New Jersey--did on that day.

No one is disputing that there were some isolated pockets of Muslims celebrating, but there's a vast difference between a few dozen, who can be considered outliers in the whole of the American Muslim population, and thousands and thousands, which implies that there were many, many American Muslims who were happy about 9/11. Which simply is not true.

Nice try, but big fail.

It would be premature at this point for Donald Trump to apologize to the people of the Middle Eastern countries that America invaded.

I am sure that there are many in this country who lost friends and relatives to the Bush Doctrines.

Okay so he shouldn't have said "thousands" and in the overall scheme of things really QUITE insignificant imho.

So to many of you Trump is unelectable because of this but would rather support Hillary instead who's the potentially the worst corrupt person and politician of them all and as POTUS will (blank) you without conscience as long as it profits her any chance she gets.

Yeah? Thousands versus maybe 100 total (pockets of 20-30 here and there as I've read) is "QUITE insignificant"?

Stop deflecting and bringing Hillary into this. No one is saying they would vote for Hillary over him. This thread is not about her. It's not a contest on who sucks more or who lies more. I for one despise Hillary Clinton. I'm a Republican. I don't like Trump's lie about my state. And yes it is a significant lie. Like others are saying, if I say I will give you $2000 but only send you $40, is this insignificant? That type of discrepancy is ok then?
