Christie: Parties in N.J. on 9/11 ‘Didn’t Happen’
Donald Trump continues to stand by his story that New Jersey Muslims celebrated 9/11. Chris Christie, a fellow Republican candidate, disagrees with Trump and affirms that it didn’t happen.
“It didn’t happen, and the fact is people can say anything but the facts are the facts, that did not happen in N.J. that day and it hasn’t happened since,” Christie said during a campaign stop in New Hampshire.
NBC News reports:
Trump continues to defend his claim even though media reports do not exist that say “thousands” of Muslims held “tailgate parties” after the attacks brought down the Twin Towers in lower Manhattan.
In one defense of his claim, Trump said on “Meet the Press” Sunday, “I saw it. So many people saw it … So, why would I take it back? I’m not going to take it back.”

Donald Trump: ‘I’m Not Taking it Back’ 11:16
Trump said his staff is searching for evidence of the parties in New Jersey.
On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Monday, Trump said “They’ll find something” but it’s taking time because, “You know if you look back 14-15 years, that was like ancient times in terms of cinema and in terms of news and everything else. They don’t have the same stuff. Today you can press a button and you can see exactly what went on two years.”
