Donald Trump is in the headlines for all the wrong reasons as the 16th anniversary of 9/11 and the attack on the World Trade Centre and multiple plane hijackings on US soil passed yesterday.
Trump was speaking to a local TV station in 2001, WWOR, and when the host Alan Marcus, asked "Donald, you have one of the landmark buildings down in the Financial District, 40 Wall Street. Did you have any damage, or did you — what's happened down there?" Trump responded, "I mean, 40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually before the World Trade Center the tallest, and then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, and now it's the tallest."
You can here the call below from a tweet that has now, somewhat predictably, gone viral. #FakeNews etc
