Former President Donald Trump honors the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks in a surprise visit to NYC emergency departments.
Trump’s unannounced appearance coincided with his condemnation of the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan under Joe Biden’s administration.
“It was gross incompetence, and I hate to talk about it on this day,” he said.
As he continued his remarks, the Former President shifted the subject and focused on the police and firefighters.
He commended the officers and told them, “if they let you do your job, you wouldn’t have crime in New York!”
The room erupted into laughter when Trump jokingly said, “Don’t nod, because if you do nod, you’ll get in trouble, okay?” and advised the crowd to “just stand and just be perfect.”
In the middle of the conversation, an officer asked whether Trump would consider running for New York City Mayor if he would not run for President. “I would love that! I’d say, ‘Fellas, good luck, go to town,” he responded.
According to Trump, crimes will be eradicated in just a week when he becomes the mayor of NYC.
“It’s hurting our city very badly,” he further noted.
Together with the former President, the group gathered for a photo opportunity as a reminder of the noteworthy event. He even jested about being infected by the COVID-19 virus: “I’m not catching anything from you. If I do, I’ll come back and blame you,” prompting the crowd to burst into laughter.
Former President Donald Trump was also greeted by a group of officers outside the stationhouse, shaking hands and taking pictures with him.
