Donald Trump, the Republican candidate for President, has been described as a carny act gone political and an entertainer who wants to be President. Trump’s critic have been chewing him up since he announced his candidacy but that fodder has only made Trump more appealing to his supporters. It comes as no surprise to his supporters that once again Trump is making headlines with an assertion that the mainline new sources can’t confirm. Tuesday, Trump is sticking by his story and his supporters are sticking by him.
This newest allegation that Trump is a divisive and not in touch with reality started Saturday at the campaign stop in Alabama. It started with this, “I watched in Jersey City, NJ where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” Trump said, then continued with, “Thousands of people were cheering, so something’s going on we got to find out what it is.” News outlets were quick to say, “it’s not so, it never happened. “ As quickly as news people were quick to say it didn’t happen, supporters found an article from the Washington Post that declared that Trump may not have been so off base. The Post article stated that, In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the World Trade Center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river.”
So is Donald Trump completely fabricating the story or did he actually see a news report on the matter? In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, he said that “It did happen, I saw it with my own eyes. There were thousands of people that were cheering, on the other side of the river” and continuing Trump said, I know it may not be politically correct to talk about, but there were people cheering as those buildings came down. And that tells you something. It was well covered at the time, I know they don’t like to talk about it, but it was well covered at the time. There were people over in New Jersey that were watching it, heavy Arab population that were cheering as the buildings came down. Not good.” Now that is the real reason supporters of Trump will continue to support him for President. Mistrust of the government is center mount in the believers of Trump. Trump always tells the truth and there is a major conspiracy to suppress the truth. The question of whether Trump supporters are going to bail on their Presidential candidate the universal answer is no, never. They are devoted to the man they want to be President. They will take every potential political fall from grace and pick Trump back up. Trump’s campaign is far from over.
