DONALD TRUMP: 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 [in Jersey City]... 

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.
