As we reported earlier Mike Bloomberg lied claiming that on 9/11 he led NYC through one of America’s darkest moments in history.
While we reported since Bloomberg didn’t become NYC mayor until 2012, it was, in fact, Rudy Giuliani who saw us through the 9/11 terror attack.
We also wrote:
One thing Bloomberg won’t be mentioning in any of his 2020 campaign ads is how, under his leadership, the planning for the 9/11 memorial became so politicized, that it was considered by New Yorkers nothing short of a clown show.
The only thing I’ll say about that at this time is the process gave more weight to the Muslim community on what the message of the 9/11 memorial should be, than those of the families who lost loved ones.
Here is some more information on the wonderful leadership Mike Bloomberg provided NYC over the next decade.
On Sept. 11, 2001, 19 radicalized Muslim men used hijacked commercial planes against targets in the United States at the behest of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
New York City took the brunt of the attack as nearly 3,000 people were killed and over 6,000 injured in the attack on the World Trade Center.
The plans on how or even if to rebuild at the twin towers site took over a decade to finally be executed, but among those plans was a mosque and Islamic center just two blocks from ground zero.
Many were outraged that an Islamic holy site would be built so close to where the attacks by Islamic jihadists took place.
But not Mike Bloomberg who was vocal in his support of the project despite the strong opposition from many groups, including Donald Trump and nearly all 9/11 families.
After 9/11, New Yorkers of all faiths came together to rebuild the city. So when groups opposed a mosque near Ground Zero, I spoke up.
Muslims are as much a part of NYC & America as people of any faith. Our doors are open to everyone with a dream and a willingness to work hard. pic.twitter.com/xeYeWxNplk

As this issue will no doubt be part of the 2020 presidential campaign, thanks in large part to Bloomberg’s own campaign spotlighting it, there is another New Yorker who stood firm against the project.
In an effort to quash the planned mosque and Islamic center, Donald Trump offered to buy the site back when he was “real estate mogul” instead of “president.”
Donald Trump reiterated the offer on Twitter back in 2012:
Trump was then and is now clearly head and shoulders above his political rival. Standing on his principals, Trump towers over the man he calls “Mini Mike.” There won’t be a big enough box at the debate podium to help Bloomberg overcome that.
The Ground Zero Mosque should not go up where planned. It is wrong. My offer still stands to buy the property. Good deal for everyone.
