Former President Donald Trump kicked off his day to commemorate the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks by unleashing a rant against Joe Biden, making the day all about himself as he unloaded on his successor. There was quite a backlash over reports that the twice-impeached one-term president will join his son, Don Jr., to provide commentary on a “gamecast” for the Evander Holyfield vs. Vitor Belfort boxing match scheduled for the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. So, maybe that’s why Trump is reportedly going to visit Ground Zero today, too. But even that’s weird since he attacked Joe Biden just before the president visited the area.
According to TMZ, the former president has been bragging about the “obscene” amount of money he’s getting for his upcoming gig providing commentary at the boxing match on the 20th anniversary of Sept. 11.
“Multiple sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Trump says he’s making an “obscene” amount of money providing “live, alternative commentary” on the Evander Holyfield/Vitor Belfort fight,” the outlet reports. “We’re told Triller, the media company behind the event, is paying a fortune … millions and millions for his blow-by-blow analysis, though our sources would not be more specific.”
“And there’s more. Trump says Triller is providing him with a G-5 jet to take him back and forth. What’s unclear … Trump lives in West Palm Beach, a stone’s throw from the Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida where the event is taking place,” the report continues. “So that’s a car drive, not a plane ride. It’s possible Trump’s going to New York City earlier in the day to commemorate 9/11.”

“Our sources say not everyone connected with the event is pleased, and some are downright angry,” the report adds.
Viewers for the boxing match can purchase either the main telecast or the Trump “gamecast” for $49.99. Meanwhile, President Joe Biden on Saturday is visiting all three sites where planes crashed on September 11, 2001, to commemorate the victims and heroes of that day on the 20th anniversary of the attack. One of these two men acts presidential; the other does not.
