Trump makes offer on Islamic center site

Real estate mogul Donald Trump has offered to buy the lower Manhattan
site where a Muslim group plans to build an Islamic community center for 25
percent more than the current owners paid for it.

A letter obtained by CNN obtained from Donald Trump confirms his offer to purchase the site at 45 Park Place.

    For all that do not understand why we would not want a mosque at the site of a terriost attack, we understand that not all muslims are the extremist that commited this act, just like all whites arent in the kkk, all blacks arent in a gang, and all mexicans arent illegal. Its the point of the situation, its an association issue, muslims are associated with the extremist that did this, not that there all bad, but to put their shrine at the site of the terriost attacks shouldn't be allowed. They can build it anywhere, just shouldn't do it at this location
