Trump: I ‘helped a little bit’ with Ground Zero clean-up
Hard to do when you’re in your zootsuit.
“Everyone who helped clear the rubble, and I was there, and I watched, and I helped a little bit, but I want to tell you, those people were amazing, clearing the rubble, trying to find additional lives, you didn’t know what was going to come down on all of us, and they handled it,” Trump said…
Washington Post‘s Philip Bump noted that contemporaneous reporting indicated Trump certainly visiting Ground Zero after the attacks. New York Newsday wrote that the businessman appeared on the site two days afterward with “every hair in place and impeccably dressed in a black suit, pressed white shirt and red tie, walking into the plaza with his cellular phone to his ear.”
