New York - Giuliani Confirms "Pockets" Of New York Muslims Celebrated 9/11, But Says Trump Is "Exaggerating"
New York, NY - Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani acknowledged on Tuesday that there were “pockets” of New York Muslims celebrating the terrorist attacks on 9/11, but said Republican GOP frontrunner Donald Trump is “exaggerating” when he says those numbers were in the thousands.
During an appearance on CNN.com (http://cnn.it/1TrmrII) reports “New Day,” Giuliani admitted to receiving confirmed reports of small Muslim celebrations in Queens and Brooklyn, but said they included nowhere near the numbers Trump insists he recalls seeing.
“We did have some celebrating, that is true,” Giuliani said. “We had pockets of celebration some in Queens, some in Brooklyn—10, 12, 30, 40” people.”
When pressed as to whether or not Trump is “not telling the truth,” Giuliani said, “He’s exaggerating, is what he’s doing.”
The former mayor also said it’s up to the billionaire mogul to produce evidence, or otherwise suffer the consequences.
“If thousands of people were demonstrating and he saw it on television, then there must be some tape of it somewhere,” Giuliani said. “If it shows up it will corroborate him. If it doesn’t show up it’s going to make him look really bad.”
