Chris Christie has an opinion on 9/11 different than Trump’s

Chris Christie

Republican candidate Donald Trump managed to shock the media a bit over the last days, after claiming that he saw “thousands of thousands of people cheering” in New Jersey, as soon as the World Trade Center towers collapsed on 9/11.

Like expected, some of the candidates for the White House came with their personal opinion on this statement, one of them being Chris Christie, fellow republican and New Jersey governor.

“I do not remember that.”

According to Politico.com, he told the press that he simply doesn’t recall such things, even though the moment was very emotional for him, since his wife, Mary Pat, was working in lower Manhattan at the time.

“It was a pretty emotional time for me because, as I’ve mentioned before, there’s family involved, there were, you know, friends involved and so it was a pretty harrowing time,” Chris Christie said. “I do not remember that, and so it’s not something that was part of my recollection. I think if it had happened, I would remember it, but, you know, there could be things I forget, too.”

Also, Chris Christie isn’t the only one stating that there wasn’t any cheering in New Jersey during those horrific moments. The Washington Post also stated that an article published on September 18, 2001, in the Star-Ledger, proved that the rumors of “rooftop celebrations of the attack by Muslims” were unfounded.

“Donald Trump has memory issues!”

Even more, the actual mayor of Jersey City, Steven Fulop, had an even more acid commentary regarding Mr. Trump’s statement, saying on Twitter that “Either @realDonaldTrump has memory issues or willfully distorts the truth, either of which should be concerning for the Republican Party”

Of course, we’re looking forward to a comeback from Donald Trump, after both governor Chris Christie and Mayor Fulop didn’t agree with his opinion.

    Here they go again.

    Let’s get a hold of our selves America. Isis and its
    off shoots comprise about 60,000 members, of which only about 15 to 20,000 are
    true suicidal fanatics. They have no Airforce, Navy, sophisticated intelligence
    network, or capable logistical structure. While their horrendously brutal
    attacks are shockingly unsettling there results are small, 5 or 10 individual’s
    to a few hundred compared to 100’s or 1,000 killed a day in a real conventional
    war against a true capable enemy . One human life lost to these cowardly
    thugs should not be tolerated and avenged, but the loss of proportion and
    actual threat should not either.

    The purpose of terrorism is fear, followed by hysterical
    over reaction and restrictive rights oppression by government and finally the
    unwarranted self-recognition of the terrorist true threat and power. It
    appears in the U S all of Isis terrorism goals are unwittingly being met.
    Our media has gone 24/7 with terrorism coverage giving the Isis terrorist the
    undeserved recognition and inflated threat they desire. We have an
    American political Party that has fallen into the most basic terrorist trap of
    hysteria, over reaction, and ignorant bellicose xenophobic promises of the
    restriction and denial of basic human rights based only on national origin and
    religion faith. And these are the very leaders of this Party actually running
    to be our nation’s President and leader of the FREE world. America get a
    hold of yourself, do not let the terrorist win, choose enlightenment over
    ignorance.

    A few facts;

    Since 9/11 there have been 24 U S deaths by terrorists in the U S

    There have been about 10,000 just gun homicide deaths a year since 9/11 in the
    U S, over 30,000 total deaths by guns per year

    More people have been killed by guns in the U S since 1968 than in all of our
    wars combined 1776 to 2015
