Eric Trump doubles down on father’s claim of being at 9/11 Ground Zero: “He was totally there, we all were”
The second son of Kremlin kowtower and coronary thrombosis waitlister Dotard J. Trump on Tuesday bolstered his father’s claim of spending time with firefighters and police officers at New York’s Ground Zero in the wake of the deadliest terrorist attacks on U.S. soil in U.S. history.
In a freewheeling, spontaneous in-studio interview on Fox News morning show Fox & Friends, Eric Trump told hosts Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Ainsley Earhardt that his father “immediately wanted to go down there and help with rescue and recovery as soon as he heard that the second World Trade Center tower had collapsed.”
“My father is the kindest, most generous man I know, and he was very concerned about the many lives that were lost and he immediately wanted to know how we could help out in any way we can,” he said. “I remember him calling a family meeting in his office that day and we resolved overwhelmingly to go down there as soon as authorities would allow us.
“We did not come down on the day of, but we were there probably two or three days later, digging out with our shovels, hoping we would find some survivors,” Trump added.
In a stunning twist that impressed the Fox & Friends hosts, Trump provided a photograph taken at Ground Zero of his father, himself and his two siblings Donald Jr. and Ivanka hard at work with their golden shovels.
“Well, there you have it, folks,” Doocy said. “Let’s see the haters and doubters try to refute that photographic proof.”
Earhardt, slightly overcome with emotion, held Trump’s hand and said, “Eric, I cannot say this enough, but God bless you and your family. You truly are Heaven’s blessing upon us all.”
