Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump reiterated during his Sunday news show appearance that he saw people in New Jersey, and implied they were Arab Americans, “cheering as the World Trade Center came down” on Sept. 11.

Trump had said Saturday during a campaign rally in Alabama that he saw these crowds cheering, a comment he reiterated on ABC’s “This Week.”

“There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey where you have large Arab populations. They were cheering as the World Trade Center came down,” Trump said. “I know it might be not politically correct for you to talk about it, but there were people cheering as that building came down, as those buildings came down, and that tells you something. It was well covered at the time.”
