DeSantis Helps 9/11 Families After Trump Humiliated Them

Ron DeSantis had hosted about 500 veterans, Gold Star families and relatives who lost loved ones in the unfortunate September 11 attacks at the Florida Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee. He also met privately with eight 9/11 families to listen to their stories and hear their concerns, according to one relative of a victim.



“It was just so remarkable and gracious that the governor of Florida invited us to his home,” Brett Eagleson, 37 as reported by The Post. “He gave us over an hour of his time and listened to every one of our stories.”

Eagleson was just 15 years old when his dad was killed while working in the South Tower of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. As president of the organization 9/11 Justice, he has spent the past seven years fighting for more information about Saudi Arabia’s alleged role in the attacks.

On Saturday, he slammed Trump for hosting a LIV golf tournament, which is bankrolled by Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund on Memorial Day weekend.

“I just want to juxtapose that against what a former president is doing on this very weekend at a golf course and one of his own golf courses, lining the pockets from a country who stands accused in a trial as we speak… of aiding and abetting and sponsoring the 9/11 terror attacks,” he said of DeSantis’ actions versus Trump’s.

It was also noted earlier this month, a 9/11 family advocacy group penned a letter to the former president and condemned the three-day tournament as “an insult to the memory of those killed in the attacks.”

“Your decision to maintain an ongoing business partnership with the Saudi government has been deeply hurtful to the 9/11 community,” wrote Terry Strada, national chair of 9/11 Families United whose husband was killed in the World Trade Center.

The sporting event was hosted at Trump National golf course in Northern Virginia — 29 miles from the Pentagon, where 184 of nearly 3,000 victims were murdered. Trump also said last week that he “fully understand[s] and love[s]” the 9/11 families.

“But it’s tremendous economic development, tremendous number of jobs, just for an event like this — it’s a big event,” he told reporters at his golf course.
