Trump Signs 9/11 Victims Bill, Lies That He “Spent A Lot Of Time” With First Responders At Ground Zero [VIDEO]

Mediaite reports:

During a signing ceremony for the 9/11 victim compensation fund bill, President Donald Trump — speaking to an audience filled with first responders — made reference his time “down there” at Ground Zero.

Speaking from the White House Rose Garden Monday morning, the president discussed his time at the site of the attacks. “I was down there also,” Trump said. “But I’m not considering myself a first responder. But I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you.”

This claim, however, has never been corroborated. And according to Snopes, Ground Zero was on lockdown by Sept. 15, and a government-issued ID badge was required to access the site.
