During an interview with FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani paid tribute to the firefighters and police officers of 9/11 on this 14th anniversary.
“It’s the worst day in my life and the best day in my life, meaning the great acts of heroism. I’m so proud of my firefighters and police officers who stood their ground… I go all over the world and people come up to me and tell me ‘I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for’ – and I like it when they say, ‘your firefighters and your police officers’,” he said.
Giuliani said 9/11 united America in the days that followed.
“Four days later President Bush drove up the west side of Manhattan with me and Governor Pataki and my commissioners and the entire west side of Manhattan was cheering and yelling and waving flags… and yelling out ‘we love you George’ and I leaned over to the president and I said ‘Mr. President, I don’t know how to tell you this but none of these people voted for you.”
