Trump sets his sights on Ground Zero
The real estate mogul unveils his own plan to recreate the twin towers at Ground Zero.
NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Donald Trump unveiled his plan to recreate the twin towers at Ground Zero at a press conference Wednesday, in an attempt to trump the Libeskind plan for a stand-alone Freedom Tower.
The real estate mogul said he aims to build two 111-story buildings, one foot taller than the 1360-foot buildings destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Trump plan would require scraping the Libeskind plan for a 1,776-foot Freedom Tower, symbolizing the year of American independence, which continues to be hotly debated.
"In a nutshell, Freedom Tower should not be allowed to be built, it's not appropriate for downtown Manhattan, it's not appropriate for Manhattan, it's not appropriate for the U.S. and it's not appropriate for freedom," Trump said.
"The only thing good about the building, from an architectural standpoint, is the name Freedom Tower," he added.
