Trump also suggested the celebrations would have occurred because Muslims everywhere cheered the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.
“You have a huge Muslim population between Paterson and different places and Jersey City — an unbelievable, large population,” he said, adding Muslims at soccer games and “all around the world” celebrated the attacks.
“Why wouldn’t it have taken place? I’ve had hundreds of people call in and tweet in on Twitter saying that they saw it and I was 100% right,” Trump said. “I saw it and so many people saw it, Chuck. So why would I take it back? I’m not going to take it back.”
Trump also made another claim: That President Barack Obama’s plans of allowing 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States in the 2016 fiscal year is actually drastically lower than what Obama truly has in mind.
“I have it upon a certain amount of knowledge — I’m very friendly with a lot of people on both sides — that Obama’s plan is 200,000 to 250,000,” Trump said.
