Donald trumps the towers 

New York property tycoon Donald Trump has unveiled his design for "bigger, stronger and better" twin towers to replace the World Trade Centre destroyed on September 11, 2001.

Denouncing the existing plans for rebuilding Ground Zero as the "worst pile of crap architecture I've ever seen", Mr Trump argued that erecting two new, even taller twin towers was the only valid response to the terroristsÂ…

Describing the Freedom Tower as an "empty skeleton", Mr Trump said its construction would be a capitulation. "If we rebuild the World Trade Centre in the form of a skeleton ... the terrorists win. It's that bad," he told reporters gathered in the lobby of his Fifth Avenue Trump Towers headquarters in Manhattan.
I have to agree with Donald on this one. The best monument to the almost 3,000 people who lost their lives on September 11 is for life and normalcy to resume on the site. It would also be a more fitting response to those who brought the towers down and intended to bring America to its knees with them – you can't destroy us or our way of life, because whatever you manage to tear down we'll put up again, even bigger and better.

What does everyone else think?
