Donald Trump intends to visit Ground Zero on the 20th anniversary of 9/11 after Rudy Giuliani said Joe Biden was “not welcome” in NYC.
The former Republican president said he would visit the site of the terrorist attacks in Manhattan in an interview with Fox News Friday.
Ahead of his expected visit, Trump sent a video message of support and also took a swipe at Joe Biden.
“For the great people of our country this is a very sad day,” Trump said in the 90-second long video which was shared online. “September 11 represents great sorrow for our country.”
“Many things were displayed that day, including most importantly the bravery of our police, fire and first responders of every kind, the job they did was truly unbelievable” said Trump. “We love them and we thank them.”
He then turned his attention to taking aim at Biden and his handling of the withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week, the loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded, should never have happened,” Trump said in the video. “It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening. This is the 20th year of this war, and should have been a year of victory and honor, and strength.”
But, Trump claimed, Biden had “surrendered in defeat.”
