Former President Trump made a surprise public visit to New York City on the 20th Anniversary of the September 11 terror attacks, where he was greeted with a grand applause.
Trump visited precincts of the city’s police officers and firefighters. At NYPD’s 17th Precinct, he signed the station’s log book with the accompanying message, I LOVE YOU ALL!”
The New York Post reported “Trump left the NYPD’s 17th Precinct in midtown just after 1:40pm. He exited to cheers and applause, with one well-wisher screaming, “Thank you for keeping us safe.”
Outside of the stationhouse, officers lined up to greet the former President and erupted in cheers and applause, as he posed for photos and then walked next door to Ladder Co. 2, where he signed autographs.
In his statements, Trump said, “I’ve been given so much support by the people who do what you do. We love the blue. I’ll say it loud. You know, you’re not supposed to say that. We love the blue.”
Trump also addressed assembled guests and took a few shots at Biden. “It was gross incompetence and I hate to talk about it on this day” he said of Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan.
At one point someone asked Trump if we would consider running for mayor of New York City. “I would love that!” he replied. “I’d say, ‘Fellas good luck, go to town,’ before apparently referencing an uptick in violence in the five boroughs. ‘It’s hurting our city very badly” reports the Post.
