Trump says he 'would love' to run for NYC mayor after visiting first responders on 9/11 anniversary
TRUMP floated a future run for New York City mayor in a question and answer session during his meeting with first responders on the anniversary of 9/11.
Asked if he would consider a mayoral run, he replied, "Well, that's an interesting question. I would love that.
"We could straighten it out. I'd say, 'Fellas, good luck, go to town.' They'd be announcing in one week, 'There's no crime in this city.'"
Trump was also asked yet again about his intentions to run for president in 2024, referencing growing speculation that he plans to seek re-election, the Washington Examiner reports.
He answered that he had already made up his mind, adding, "I think you’re going to be very happy," but declined to give a conclusive answer.
The former president held a surprise meeting with the NYPD and FDNY on the 20th anniversary of the attack after he skipped the official ceremony.
He was met with loud applause from the crowd, as he shook hands and took pictures with police and firefighters.
After touring the city, he attended a boxing event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida.
FITE, the digital video streaming service, announced that the former president and his son, Donald Trump Jr., would “offer their perspective” on that night's fight between Evander Holyfield and Vitor Belfort.
Trump used the opportunity to once again push the disproven theory of widespread election fraud.
While waiting for referees to return their scores, he reportedly said he had seen many bad boxing decisions over the years, adding: “It’s like the elections. It could be rigged.”
Ahead of the event, he released a commemorative video, saying, "For the great people of our country this is a very sad day. September 11 represents great sorrow for our country.
“Many things were displayed that day, including most importantly the bravery of our police, fire, and first responders of every kind, the job they did was truly unbelievable. We love them and we thank them."
He went on to once again criticize Biden's withdrawal from Afghanistan.
“It is also a sad time for the way our war on those that did such harm to our country ended last week, the loss of 13 great warriors and the many more who were wounded, should never have happened.
“It was caused by bad planning, incredible weakness, and leaders who truly didn’t understand what was happening.
"This is the 20th year of this war, and should have been a year of victory and honor, and strength."
