Right after the World Trade Center in New York's Manhattan was taken down in a terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, U.S. President Donald Trump could not help but tout his 40 Wall Street building, also called the Trump Tower.

Axar.az informs citing AP.

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."
