Officials in charge of rebuilding the World Trade Center site Wednesday were quick to dismiss real estate developer Donald Trump's proposal to scrap
their plan and instead build "reincarnated" Twin Towers similar to the originals.
"Donald Trump is entitled to his opinion, just like the millions of people who actually involved themselves in the public planning process which
resulted in the master plan," said a spokesperson for the Lower Manhattan Development Corp., the agency overseeing rebuilding on the 16-acre site hit
by the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
But Trump told reporters at a news conference: "Throw it all away."
Trump made it clear he doesn't like it.
"It's a building that's essentially a skeleton," he said.
Trump said the plan "looks like a junkyard."
"You take a look at a the roofs of those buildings, they're all at different angles, different shapes," he said. "It is the worst pile of crap
architecture I have ever seen in my life."
