Donald Trump on September 11th

On September 11, 2001 Donald Trump spoke to New York’s WWOR Radio, reflecting on the catastrophic destruction of the World Trade Center, so close to his own property at 40 Wall Street. He reacted with his characteristic sensitivity and empathy:

“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.”


“‘And now it’s the tallest’: Trump, in otherwise somber interview on 9/11, couldn’t help touting one of his buildings,” Timothy Bella, Washington Post
