"Amazing!" That is the word Donald Trump used to describe the greatest tragedy to ever befall America. Yesterday, US commemorated the 15th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack. Amost 3,000 people died after four passenger planes were hijacked by Al Qaeda militants.
The first targets hit were the World Trade Centre's twin towers in New York. Both collapsed to the ground in a matter of seconds. Another commercial aircraft was flown into Pentagon near Washington, while passengers brought the fourth one down over Pennsylvania.
In an audio from 9/11 posted by Senior Entertainment Editor for the Daily Beast and Columbia Journal alum, Marlow Stern, Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump managed to make the national tragedy as usual, all about him.
When he was asked about potential damage to 40 Wall Street, his 71-story building that was positioned blocks away from the towers, he took the opportunity to share how "amazing" the news was:
"40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest. And then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second-tallest. And now it's the tallest"
