Trump Bragged about his Building being the Tallest right after the Attacks on 9/11

Donald Trump on 9-11 talking about one of his buildings. And he was lying then too:

“I mean, 40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually before the World Trade Center the tallest, and then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, and now it’s the tallest,” he said.

The truth:

Trump’s claim that his building was then the tallest in downtown Manhattan wasn’t accurate — the nearby 70 Pine Street building is 25 feet taller than Trump’s 40 Wall Street, though Trump’s building has four more stories.
