Trump Is Right About Rebuilding The Twin Towers
Say what you want about Donald Trump, the man made a name for himself (and a fortune) building snazzy skyscrapers and he has the right idea about rebuilding the Twin Towers:
“New York property tycoon Donald Trump unveiled his design for “bigger, stronger and better” twin towers to replace the World Trade Center originals destroyed on September 11, 2001.
Denouncing the existing plans for rebuilding Ground Zero as the “worst pile of crap architecture I’ve ever seen,” Trump argued that erecting two new, even taller twin towers was the only valid response to the terrorists.
The consummate self-promoter, known as “The Donald,” showed off his proposal just weeks after the official master design was put on hold because of security concerns surrounding the centerpiece 1,776 foot Freedom Tower.
Describing the Freedom Tower as an “empty skeleton,” Trump said its construction would be a capitulation.
“If we rebuild the World Trade Center in the form of a skeleton … the terrorists win. It’s that bad,” he told reporters gathered in the lobby of his 5th Avenue Trump Towers headquarters on Manhattan.
…”It’s bigger, it’s stronger and it’s better than the previous World Trade Center, and it sets the right tone and the right attitude,” Trump said, adding that some members of the public who had seen the model had been moved to tears.”
The Twin Towers should be “bigger,” “stronger,” and “bolder” to send a message not just to the terrorists, but the rest of the world. You may knock America down, but we’ll just be back bigger and better than ever. One day, probably right after that craptacular pile of artsy garbage posing as a replacement for the WTC is actually built, they’ll figure out that Trump was right all along.
