While others stayed away out of fear of toxic fumes swirling about the Twin Towers wreckage, Donald Trump went to Ground Zero the very next day to see what he could do to help. It was at that moment when past, present, and future, intersected. Mr. Trump looks up to where those buildings once stood, sees the twisted metal hulk of burnt-out remains, and realizes we are at war with enemies both foreign and domestic who would see America destroyed. There is shock and sadness in Trump’s eyes, but also undeniable determination.
Fifteen years later he would be President of the United States, still fighting, still rebuilding, still determined to see the United States restored.
