An audio interview has resurfaced from President Donald Trump falsely showing how one of his buildings was the tallest in New York just hours after the World Trade Center collapsed on September 11, 2001.

Trump called the New Jersey television station WWOR to make dull comments and brag about about 40 Wall Street in the afternoon immediately after the terror attacks.

& # 39; 40 Wall Street was actually the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and actually, before the World Trade Center, it was the tallest, and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it was known as the second highest, & # 39; he said. "And now he's the tallest."

& # 39; 40 Wall Street was actually the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and actually, before the World Trade Center, it was the tallest, and then, when they built the World Trade Center, it was known as the second highest, & # 39; he said.

That claim later turned out to be false. At 952 feet, 70 Pine Street was about 25 feet higher than 40 Wall Street after the attack, according to the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat.

He also claimed $ 150,000 from the government, originally earmarked to help small businesses, to cover losses for rent & # 39; and & # 39; repairs & # 39;

More than a decade later, Trump, then a television star and host of The Apprentice, tweeted a strange message to the "haters and losers" on the anniversary of the terrorist attack.

"I would like to express my best wishes to everyone, including those who hate and lose, on this special date, on September 11," he wrote.

During his presidential election campaign in November 2015, Trump notoriously claimed that he had seen thousands of Muslims applauding for the attack in New Jersey.

"I watched when the World Trade Center collapsed, and I looked in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were applauding when the building was going down," he said at a rally in Birmingham, Alabama.

He later claimed that the applause came from areas with "large Arab populations".

Many New Jersey residents and police representatives have refuted the claim.

Later, the president would go to claim in 2016 that he lost "hundreds" of friends on September 11, which would result in knowing one in ten of the nearly three thousand people who died.

In 2016 he made another dubious claim, saying that 9/11 would never have happened under his immigration policy, even though 15 of the 19 terrorists involved were in fact Saudi Arabian nationals, a country that has been omitted from its ban on travel.

"The people who toppled the World Trade Center most likely under Trump's policy would not have been here to bring down the World Trade Center, just so you understand," he said.

He has also blamed previous presidents, such as George Bush and Bill Clinton, for not having avoided the attack.

The high floor of Donald! How Trump often boasts that his towers are taller than they are to try to make them more attractive to buyers

This is not the first time that President Trump has been discovered exaggerating about size.

He has often been accused of being creative with the height of many of his properties in New York to make them look more prestigious.

According to reports, Trump adds 20 more floors when he describes his properties, apparently to make his apartments more attractive for big money buyers. His worst example of inflation was the Trump World Tower on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

He called it the tallest residential tower in the world & # 39; with 90 floors and 900 feet, although in reality it was 70 stories and 843 feet, according to the archives of the construction department of the city of New York.

It is reported that Trump claims that his properties have up to 20 additional floors, ostensibly to make his apartments more attractive for large money buyers.

Trump said it reached 90 floors by dividing 900 feet by 10 feet, the standard of a residential apartment, even though it announced that the apartments had higher ceilings than usual.

He said at that moment: "I could have gone beyond 90 stories. I chose 90 because I thought it was a good number & # 39;

According to the New York Times, Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York, one of its most famous properties, was built with 58 floors, but claimed it had 68.

When the property was built, Trump started the first residential apartment on the "30th floor" even though there were only 19 commercial floors below them.

Another building that obtained the Trump treatment was Trump SoHo, which was completed in 2010. According to plans submitted to the state attorney general's office there were 43 floors, Trump said there were 46.

When Trump renewed the 583-foot Trump International Hotel in Manhattan in 1994, he said it was a 52-story tower, though it actually had 44 floors.

When they caught him, Trump said the new apartments on the property were smaller and that he was actually being restricted because he could have said they were 60 floors if he wanted to.

Amir Korangy, editor of The Real Deal, a New York real estate magazine, said: "The higher your building is, the better it will be for your marketing purposes, any kind of advantage you can get to add a floor here and there. , you take it & # 39;
