Brenda Blackmon, a news anchor who interviewed the then-real estate mogul, recalled Trump's awkward remarks as quoted by the Washington Post.

"I have a window that looks directly at the World Trade Center, and I saw this huge explosion. I really couldn't even believe it." He added: "Now, I'm looking at absolutely nothing. It's just gone. It's just hard to believe," Trump told the journalist.

Asking whether the billionaire's property had suffered any damage, Blackmon got a response she would never expect.

"40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually, before the World Trade Center, was the tallest — and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it became known as the second tallest," he said.

"And now it's the tallest."
