Former President Donald Trump made a surprise visit to the New York City Fire Department (FDNY) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD) on the 20th anniversary of September 11.
“It’s a sad day, it’s a very sad day for many reasons,” Trump told reporters.
He criticized President Joe Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, saying it had not been properly covered by the media and thought it was very disappointing.
President Biden and First Lady Jill Biden, along with former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, were at Ground Zero to commemorate the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the same day.
“I grew up with you. You are New York’s finest. You are incredible people,” Trump told police and firefighters.
He then said that he appreciated the support of him by the New York City police.
“For the first time ever he endorsed a candidate, he told me,” Trump said, “for president.”
An NYPD official then asked him if he planned to run for president in 2024.
“Oh, that’s a tough question,” she replied amidst some laughter.
“It’s actually a simple question for me. I know what I’m going to do, but we shouldn’t be talking about it yet, from the standpoint of campaign finance laws, which are obviously ridiculous,” Trump he said.
“But I think you’re gonna be happy, let me put it that way,” he said.
Between cheers and applause, signing some autographs, and waving the public’s hand, Trump left the NYPD’s 17th Precinct in the early afternoon.
Former US President Donald Trump was asked by an NYPD official if he might consider running for office again.
“We shouldn’t be talking about it yet… but I think you’re going to be happy,” he replies.

“We love the color blue. I’ll say it out loud. We shouldn’t have to say, we love the color blue!” Trump said, while several voices could be heard responding, “We love you!”
