Muslim leader challenges Donald Trump to come to Jersey City – Houston Chronicle

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — The leader of a national Muslim-American organization characterized Donald Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that he saw Jersey City residents celebrating on the day of the 2001 terrorist attacks as “vicious” and invited the Republican presidential candidate to come to the city and meet with Muslims. Nihad Awad, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said Thursday that Trump has produced no evidence to back up his claim last month that he saw television reports of “thousands of people” in Jersey City cheering as the Twin Towers fell Sept. 11, 2001.
