Former US President Donald Trump defended hosting the Saudi-backed LIV Golf Series at his own course in Bedminster, New Jersey, brushing off criticism from families of 9/11 victims by saying “nobody’s gotten to the bottom” of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

With families set to protest the golf event — being held just 80km from where the Twin Towers once stood — ESPN pressed Trump for a response to the controversy, the New York Post reported.

“Well, nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11, unfortunately, and they should have as to the maniacs that did that horrible thing to our city, to our country, to our world,” Trump said. “So nobody’s really been there.”

The former President then attempted to put a positive spin on the golf event, saying, “there are a lot of really great people that are out here today, and we’re gonna have a lot of fun”.

“We’re going to celebrate and money’s going to charity,” Trump added. “A lot of money (is) going to charity.

“I’ve known these people for a long time They’ve been friends of mine for a long time. They’ve invested in many American companies. They own big percentages of many, many American companies and, frankly, what they’re doing for golf is so great. What they’re doing for the players is so great. The salaries are going to go way up.”
