Trump Defends Hosting Saudi Golf Tour, Claims ‘Nobody’s Gotten To The Bottom Of 9/11’
Donald Trump has defended his decision to host the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series at his golf course in New Jersey. Trump has been heavily criticized by the families of 9/11 victims for hosting the tour at his Bedminster golf course. In an interview with ESPN, Trump defended his decision to host the tour by claiming “nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11.” "Well, nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately, and they should have as to the maniacs that did that horrible thing to our city, to our country, to our world," Donald Trump. The former president then attempted to put a positive spin on the event by saying they were raising money for charity. Fifteen of the 19 hijackers who were involved in the 9/11 attacks were Saudi nationals. In a 2016 interview on Fox News, Trump said that it was Saudi Arabia who was to blame for the 9/11 attacks. "It wasn’t the Iraqis — it was Saudi. Take a look at Saudi Arabia. Open the documents," Donald Trump.
