Trump Accused Of Stealing $150,000 In 9/11 Disaster Relief Funds
Trump has a long history of lying about and profiting off of 9/11 The $150,000 that Trump took was supposed to be for clean up and repairs, but none of his buildings were damaged in the attack.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T




House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) accused Trump of stealing $150,000 in disaster relief intended for small businesses after 9/11.

Rep. Nadler said on CNN’s State Of The Union, “9/11 happened in my district. I know a lot of people who suffered from it. I was involved. I was instrumental in getting funding for small business, grants for victims of 9/11 for people with small businesses in the area. The president, he wasn’t president then, but Donald Trump actually took a $150,000 grant from the Bush administration. They let him take a $150,000 grant meant for small businessmen for 40 Wall Street. He stole $150,000 from some small business person who could have used it to help rehabilitate themselves, and that’s why I got, we got Congress to appropriate the money to use it for his own ‘small business’ at 40 Wall Street. He has no moral authority to be talking about 9/11.”

Trump is trying to use 9/11 to spread fear and division


The Bush administration for all of their uses of 9/11 as a reason for every policy that they pushed, never used the attack to demonize Muslim-Americans. Former President Bush gave speeches where he separated the terrorists from those in the Muslim faith. Trump has trampled all of that distinction because he is getting desperate as his reelection campaign approaches.

Trump has a long history of lying about and profiting off of 9/11 The $150,000 that Trump took was supposed to be for clean up and repairs, but none of his buildings were damaged in the attack.

Donald Trump has no moral authority to talk about anything, but it is especially outrageous that robbed 9/11 victims and then uses the attack to whip up fear.

Well, he has yet to face the music in abusing the emoluments clause, cynically implicates a freshman congresswoman and all American Muslims in cheering the 9/11 attacks, profits from the same attack, absolves the Saudis for their roll in the Khashoggi murder, and still has those who defend him. Indefensible.

Read the article. Also did some of my own research.

Did you know that owning a building that suffered damage during 9/11 is NOT a requirement for applying for or receiving the grant?

bet you didn't bother to look anything up for yourself.

How's Snopes for you as a source to prove you wrong?

https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-911-small-business-fund

What's True
A business owned or operated by Donald Trump was entitled to $150,000 in federal aid to businesses affected by the 9/11 attacks.
What's False
The grant money wasn't specifically earmarked for small businesses, nor was it improperly accessed by Trump. Trump's businesses did not lie or mislead federal agencies to in order to qualify under the terms of the programs, which didn't require businesses to have sustained physical damage to be entitled to the funds. Trump's business also wasn't the only large firm to qualify under criteria used by the agency tasked with distributing the grant money.

Next?

No one is disputing it.

What we are proving to you is that damage to a building was NOT a requirement to receive the grants.

No matter how many times you say his building was undamaged, it changes NOTHING about how or why he received the grant.

Now THAT would be immensely unpopular amongst Democrats in particular.

So now you want to push Granny off the cliff if she no longer pays taxes?

And no more welfare, medicaid, and housing for non-taxpayers?

Heck, Democrats railed when some states want work requirements for those things, so I don't see any way possible to simply end those programs.

He received the money under a grant, legally. How is that theft?  I'll help you, it's not. Nadler is famous for promoting fake news and you bit, hook line and sinker.

Hey, it simply doesn't meet the criteria the left uses nowadays.

Trump applied legally for a grant, met the requirements for the grant, and was awarded the grant.

Other businesses---like Ford Motor Company, the Rockefeller Group, Dell Inc., Morgan Stanley, and the Bank of China----all received grants through the same program.

This is simply yet another case of TDS run amok.

The Donald J. Trump Foundation, once billed as the charitable arm of the president’s financial empire, agreed to dissolve on Tuesday and give away all its remaining assets under court supervision as part of an ongoing investigation and lawsuit by the New York attorney general.

The foundation was accused by the attorney general, Barbara Underwood, of “functioning as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump’s business and political interests,” and of engaging in “a shocking pattern of illegality” that included unlawfully coordinating with Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.

I don't know where the NYP got its info yet every charity watchdog group rated it good. 

Charity Watch gave it an A rating, Charity Navigator gave it four stars.

$150,000 is meaningless.  Just more Trump stuff.  What about all of the workers the Trump cheated on wages in the past decades?  Just more Trump stuff.  Don't matter though, Bannon confirmed that the Trump was delivered through divine intervention.  So, there is that, right?

Remember the Trump's 'veteran group fundraiser' for the veterans group that had only one member?  You know, the one during the campaign on the battleship in New York harbor?

There is much more but, for the 'believers' it just doesn't matter.  Who cares?

"I really don't care.  Do you?"  Displayed on Melania's coat said it all.  Read em' and weep, suckers.

If it was so illegal, why not bring it up when it happened? Why wait until now?

We keep hearing from Democrats in Congress that they have special secret information about the crimes that Donald Trump has committed, but they never produce this evidence. Somehow their investigative powers exceed those of DOJ, the IRS, the SEC, the FEC and any other law enforcement agency that is expert at this kind of thing and has resources specifically designed to uncover these crimes . . . but hasn't.

When is the media going to do the right thing and start openly laughing at these idiots?

The fact that it's not in the seed, John. The years 2015 and 2016 do not appear in your story. I'm not getting my information from Fox, I'm relying on you (and Don) for complete information. Apparently my faith was misplaced. Maybe post better articles, eh?

So . . . getting back to my comment, how come Trump the great lawbreaker wasn't prosecuted by any of the government agencies I mentioned? Is there anything in your wealth of old stories about crimes being committed? Maybe this quack Nadler is as full of shit in 2019 as he was in 2015 or 2016.

I have no idea what you are talking about. This is not my seed, in fact I hadn't even commented on this seed til now. 

You asked why no one has been bringing up this story until now. That is totally not true. This story was brought up during 2016, and I'm sure even before that in articles and books about Trump. 

Why are you making excuses for Trump? He saw a chance to make a quick 150,000 by applying for a government benefit that he did not qualify for.   His business suffered no setback on 9/11 and as someone worth 10 billion (according to him) he didnt need funds set aside for small businesses who were hurt by the disruption in lower Manhattan. 

He's a scumbag, but everyone knows that. 

Was it a crime ?  I dont know, I didnt look into it in any great detail. Nadler says he "stole" the 150,000. I dont think he was accusing Trump of a crime, I think he was saying that Trump took something that he wasnt entitled to. Sounds about right. 

It is a sorry sight to see you guys time after time try and pretend Trump is ethical. 

HINT : It's a losing cause.

Was it? Because I don't see the word "steal" in the headlines you posted. It's one thing to complain that the government did something it shouldn't have in granting money to Trump. That's the government's fault. In which case, your beef is with Obama.

It's another thing altogether to accuse Trump of stealing something.

Nadler says he "stole" the 150,000. I dont think he was accusing Trump of a crime

You don't think that? Why on Earth not? Stealing is a crime. If the intention is not to accuse Trump of criminal behavior, then he should not use the word.

I think he was saying that Trump took something that he wasnt entitled to

Pardon my French, but how the F$#% is there any difference between "stealing" and "took something he wasn't entitled to????"

Why are you making excuses for Trump?

I have not said one thing in defense of Trump. Have I?! I don't even know anything about it to defend him. I'm still waiting to see the evidence that he stole something.

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrive at John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria County Airport in Johnstown, PA on September 11th, 2018.

September 11th is the most solemn day on the U.S. calendar. The terrorist attacks that left nearly 3,000 people dead 17 years ago are still fresh in the minds of many, and no occasion calls for a greater show of reverence and respect, especially from the nation’s commander-in-chief. President Trump commemorated the fallen Tuesday morning by watching a DVR’d episode of Lou Dobbs Tonight and tweeting about the Russia investigation.

i.gif?e=eyJ2IjoiMS4xIiwiYXYiOjQwOTk3OCwi

A few minutes later, the president retweeted a post from White House social media director Dan Scavino about how he signed a letter proclaiming September 11th “Patriots Day 2018,” before quickly returning to his comfort zone. Lou Dobbs was still blaring on the executive television, and half-baked musings about the Russia investigation still needed to be tweeted. In a few minutes, Trump would need to depart for a memorial service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania — where 40 people died on Flight 93 while thwarting a plot to crash into the U.S. Capitol. He snuck in a nod to his legal counsel and one more attack on the Justice Department before departing.

The president was clearly pumped up for some Trump-style tragedy commemoration upon arriving in Pennsylvania.

Trump’s relationship with 9/11 has always been curious, if not outright disrespectful. As a born-and-bred New Yorker whose identity is closely tied to the city, one would think he would make a point of showing the utmost respect for those who lost their lives, but as is the case with Trump’s relationship to just about anything, he hasn’t been able to resist making it about himself whenever possible. During an interview with Bloomberg not even two weeks ago, the president referenced George W. Bush speaking through a bullhorn at ground zero as an annoying blip preventing Trump’s own popularity among Republicans from being the highest ever. “The advantage we have is — I am actually a very popular president, which people don’t like to say, you know,” Trump said. “In fact, I guess the Republican poll came out, there’s one at 92 and one at 93 and one at 90, and they’re the highest numbers that have ever been, with the exception of a tiny period of time with a bullhorn. But that period lasted for about a week.”

The issue was brought into focus during the 2016 campaign, as well, most notably in 2015 when he falsely claimed that he watched “thousands and thousands of people” on rooftops in New Jersey “cheering as that building was coming down.” Trump was using the claim to justify his calls to surveil mosques, noting that New Jersey has a “large Arab population.” A few weeks later, he would call for all Muslim immigrants to be banned from entering the United States.

It wasn’t the only time he used 9/11 as a political tool. “The World Trade Center came down because Bill Clinton didn’t kill Osama bin Laden when he had the chance to kill him,” he said during a debate in February 2016. “And George Bush, by the way, George Bush had the chance, also, and he didn’t listen to the advice of his CIA.” When the audience booed, Trump claimed that he “lost hundreds of friends” in the attacks. A few months later, during a campaign event in Buffalo, New York, he lied about putting himself in harm’s way to help clear rubble.

Trump’s bizarre relationship with 9/11 predates his presidential run, of course. While speaking before Congress in 2005, Trump defended the use of asbestos in building materials by claiming that if the World Trade Center had been constructed using the toxic substance, they’d still be standing. In 2013, he famously tweeted that he “would like to extend my best wishes to all, even the haters and losers, on this special date, September 11th.” The tweet reportedly disappeared during the 2016 campaign, but a quoted tweet dated September 11th, 2013 remains on Trump’s timeline.

The most telling example of Trump’s understanding of 9/11, of his total lack of empathy and of his pathological self-centeredness came the morning of the attack. While on the phone with Secaucus, New Jersey’s WWOR, Trump was asked whether his building at 40 Wall Street has sustained any damaged as a result of the attacks. He proceeded to brag about how now that the World Trade Center had fallen, he owned the tallest building in downtown Manhattan. “40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan,” Trump said. “Before the World Trade Center it was the tallest. Then when the built the World Trade Center it become known as the second-tallest, and now it’s the tallest.”

To answer the question posed by WWOR’s Rolland Smith, the Trump building at 40 Wall Street did not sustain any damage from the attacks. This didn’t stop Trump from applying for and accepting federal recovery money after it was made available for the area’s small businesses, largely because of lobbying efforts by then-Senator Hillary Clinton. “For many months, I allowed people to stay in the building, use the building and store things in the building,” Trump explained after he was pressed to return the money. “I was happy to do it and to this day I am still being thanked for the many people I helped. The value of what I did was far greater than the money talked about.”

That is patently false. Trump applied for a grant, met the requirements for the grant, and was awarded a grant.

And some people still can not let their blinding hatred of all things Trump go long enough to even listen to reason or look at facts.

another story from 2016

No Evidence That $150,000 9/11 Grant Given To Trump Was Used to Help Anyone But Himself

September 12, 2016

After the collapse of the World Trade Center just 15 years ago, the federal government set up a relief fund for small businesses in the area that had been affected by 9/11. That relief fund was administered by the Empire State Development Corporation, an agency funded by the State of New York.

It’s difficult to imagine any of Donald Trump’s businesses in Manhattan as being “small.” And even if his property located at 40 Wall Street did qualify as a small business, surely someone with a net worth of $10 billion (as he was reported having at the time) wouldn’t need federal help in the wake of such a disaster.

Yet, of that $530 million relief fund, Trump received $150,000. He’s taken some heat from it; on the eve of last summer’s Democratic Convention, Representative Joseph Crowley of New York accused Trump of “cashing in” on the tragedy.

At the time, Rep. Crowley said: “He cashed in, collecting $150,000 in federal funds intended to help small businesses recover — even though days after the attack Trump said his properties were not affected.”
