On the 22nd anniversary of the tragic September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, supporters of former President Donald Trump have brought attention to an interview he conducted on that fateful day. In the interview, President Trump revealed that he personally financed the efforts of “hundreds” of his employees to search for survivors in the wreckage.

As a native New Yorker, President Trump expressed his deep concern for fellow residents who were inside the twin towers when they were struck by commercial airplanes and subsequently collapsed. While it is challenging to determine the exact number of survivors from each tower, President Trump proudly stated that his staff played a crucial role in saving the lives of at least five first responders.

Describing the perilous conditions, President Trump emphasized the unprecedented nature of the work, highlighting the dangers posed by the surrounding weakened buildings. He mentioned the shock his employees experienced upon encountering the devastation and the heartbreaking sight of bodies strewn about. Nevertheless, he expressed the relief and hope that came with each discovery of a survivor.

During his time in office, President Trump signed into law compensation for 9/11 victims, ensuring financial support for their ongoing health struggles, including illnesses resulting from exposure to toxic dust and chemicals. In 2020, he further demonstrated his commitment by allocating an additional $2 million in funding for the National September 11 Memorial & Memorial Plaza, securing the maintenance and security of the memorial and museum.

President Trump’s compassion and dedication to supporting the victims and honoring the memory of 9/11 were evident as he visited Ground Zero, where he witnessed the heartbreaking devastation and loss of human life.

In contrast, current President Joe Biden faced criticism for choosing to skip the ceremony in New York, becoming the first sitting president to do so. Instead, he sent Vice President Kamala Harris. Biden’s decision drew scrutiny, especially as he opted to travel to Anchorage, Alaska, to meet with first responders in a smaller ceremony.

Vice President Harris was seen alongside New York City’s Mayor Eric Adams, a vocal critic of the White House’s immigration policies, which have strained the city’s resources and services due to an influx of migrants.
