Trump Cites New York’s 9/11 Response To Refute Cruz's 'New York Values' Criticism
January 14, 2016
Ted Cruz was asked during the Republican debate what he meant when describing Donald Trump as having "New York values."
The Texas senator answered by saying most of the people in South Carolina knew what he meant bringing up New York's traditionally liberal viewpoints on abortion and gun control.
When asked what he thought about those comments, Trump brought up the resiliency of the New York people following 9/11.
“We took a big hit with the World Trade Center — worst thing ever, worst attack ever in the United States, worse than Pearl Harbor because they attacked civilians, they attacked people having breakfast, and frankly if you would've been there and if you would've lived through that like I did with New York people — the way they handled that attack was one of the most incredible things that anybody has ever seen.”
