Trump Defends Hosting LIV Golf Tournament, ‘Nobody’s Gotten To The Bottom Of 9/11’

Published on

Former President Trump defended his decision to host the Saudi-backed LIV Golf tournament at his National Golf Club Bedminster against calls from families of 9/11 victims to back out.

“Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately,” Trump told ESPN Thursday.

“They should have, as to the maniacs that did that horrible thing, to our city, to our country, to the world. So nobody’s really been there. But I can tell you that there are a lot of really great people that are out here today. And we’re gonna have a lot of fun and we’re going to celebrate.”

Families of the victims who lost their lives in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks are furious with Donald Trump for hosting the tournament planned for July 29-31 at Trump’s club in New Jersey, according to TheHill.com.

Grassroots group 9/11 Justice attacked Trump in a letter earlier this month claiming that the evidence was clearer than ever. “The evidence, Mr. Trump, is more clear than ever. The Saudi nation is largely responsible for the death of our loved ones and for this horrific attack on America. And you know it.”

Trump, however, called the tournament a “great thing” for Saudi Arabia. He said on ESPN Thursday that “I’ve known these people for a long time, in Saudi Arabia, and they’ve been friends of mine for a long time. They’ve invested in many American companies… and frankly, what they’re doing for golf is so great.”
