Ana Navarro: ‘Time and Time Again’ Trump Has Exploited 9/11 for His Personal Gain


Monday on CNN’s  “New Day,” network contributor Ana Navarro criticized President Donald Trump for tweeting a video that included images of Sept. 11 in response to Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) controversial comments about the attack.

Navarro said, “As far as Trump, I just can’t even fathom his level of hypocrisy and inappropriateness. Let’s remember Donald Trump’s own history with 9/11. This is a guy who lied about seeing Muslims celebrating in the streets of New Jersey right after 9/11. This is a guy who lied about being on site cleaning up rubble. This is a guy who applied for small business aid funds in New York after 9/11.”

She added, “Time and time again he has exploited the 9/11 issue for his personal gain, and it is wrong. It is wrong. 9/11 is a date of reverence. It should be a sacred date for all Americans. It’s a date of suffering and a date to reflect and a date to unify not to divide Americans. So, this entire thing needs to stop.”
