MSNBC and CNN Suggest Trump Was Never at Ground Zero after 9/11 Attacks; Videos Prove Otherwise
On Monday, when President Trump signed the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund extension, he told a story of being at Ground Zero after the 9/11 terror attacks, that immediately got unhinged liberals coming out of the woodwork to claim he was lying. Kyle Griffin, a producer at MSNBC, actually claimed there was no evidence Trump was ever at Ground Zero after 9/11:
CNN's Chris Cillizza also strongly implied Trump was lying:
Others in the media quickly piled on, challenging Trump's claim. The New York Times even fact-checked his claim, citing a retired NYFD deputy chief who said Trump was never at Ground Zero. Business Insider ran a story with the headline, "Trump said he was 'down there' at Ground Zero after the 9/11 attacks, but there's no evidence he was ever closer than a few blocks away." In more than one interview conducted in the days after the attack, Trump told of crews he had been helping in recovery efforts, and here's one clip that shows, definitively, Trump was at Ground Zero after the attacks.
So, there is tangible proof he was there, and there are other similar videos from other outlets as well.
