Donald Trump Predicted 9/11 With Frightening Accuracy A Year Before Terrorist Attacks
Donald J. Trump has criticized Jeb Bush’s ability to lead by slamming his younger brother’s record of keeping America safe. It started last month at the GOP debate when he condemned George W. Bush’s failures to prevent the attacks of September 11, 2001.
On Friday, the debate over 9/11 heated up again during a Bloomberg interview when Trump reiterated that it was on George W. Bush’s watch that the Twin Towers fell. Trump exacerbated the situation when on Sunday he told Fox News that he might have been able to prevent 9/11 through his “extremely, extremely tough” immigration policies. Some would dismiss Trump’s tactics as just bullying politics as usual, but it seems that he has a leg to stand on because he predicted 9/11 nearly two years before the horrific terrorist attacks rocked the nation.
It has come to the surface that Trump made a chilling and accurate prediction about the terror attacks in his 2000 book “The America We Deserve.” The book was released 19 months before 9/11, but painted a fairly grim scenario that would end up becoming a harsh and deadly reality:
“I really am convinced we’re in danger of the sort of terrorist attacks that will make the bombing of the Trade Center look like kids playing with firecrackers. No sensible analyst rejects this possibility, and plenty of them, like me, are not wondering if but when it will happen.”
The bombing he is referring to is the truck filled with over 1,300 pounds of explosives that detonated in the parking garage of the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993.
Trump even mentioned Osama bin-Laden:
“One day we’re told that a shadowy figure with no fixed address named Osama bin-Laden is public enemy number one, and U.S. jet fighters lay waste to his camp in Afghanistan.He escapes back under some rock, and a few news cycles later it’s on to a new enemy and new crisis.”
So the billionaire entrepreneur not only predicted the worst terrorist attack on American soil, but also the location as well as who was responsible for the abhorrent incursion. I’m sure Trump will be humble about this clairvoyant prophecy, keep it under his hat and totally not gloat about it.
