Donald Trump couldn’t even wait for the new season of The Apprentice on NBC before making some headlines. Apparently, the business mogul is looking to purchase the controversial Mosque that is going to be built on ground zero in NYC. Keep reading for the details and Donald’s reason behind this!
On the nine year anniversary of 9/11, it is being reported that NBC’s The Apprentice superstar, Donald Trump is trying to purchase the property in which a Muslim Mosque is supposed to be built. Donald is trying to put and end to the controversy over this, since so many are upset by this as the Islamic terrorists have bragged and celebrated taking down the twin towers there. So what is Donald Trump’s plan? Cash of course! Donald has offered to purchase the mosque site for cash, 25% more than the owner paid for it.
According to TMZ, Donald Trump is asking that part of the deal be that the mosque is built at least five blocks from ground zero. Donald also does not feel this is a good business deal however he is doing it as he says “because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse.” The lawyer for the investor has reportedly stated that Donald’s offer is “just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight.” We’ll have to wait and see how this one turns out, but we all know that cash talks and Donald has a lot of that, so my guess is that Mr Trump will get his way!
