Trump claims Muslims worldwide were ‘going wild’ after 9/11


MIAMI: US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump ramped up his incendiary rhetoric on Saturday, claiming that Muslims around the world were “going wild” to cheer the September 11, 2001 attacks. “Everybody admits that worldwide, the Muslims were absolutely going wild,” Trump told a crowd of supporters. In fact, several Arab and Muslim leaders — including late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and Libyan strongman Moamer Kadhafi — condemned the attacks at the time. A 2008 Gallup poll found that only seven percent of Muslims around the world said the 9/11 attacks were “completely” justified and viewed the United States unfavorably.
