Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton traded insults and sparred over temperament, stamina and judgment on Monday, in a fiery US presidential debate that often saw the Republican nominee on the back foot.
Before an anticipated television audience of up to 100 million, Trump praised Dubai and Qatar airports while comparing them to a few US airports with “third world” amenities.
“When we have $20 trillion in debt, and our country’s a mess, you know, it’s one thing to have $20 trillion in debt and our roads are good and our bridges are good and everything’s in great shape, our airports. Our airports are like from a third world country,” the Republican said.
“You land at LaGuardia, you land at Kennedy, you land at LAX, you land at Newark, and you come in from Dubai and Qatar and you see these incredible – you come in from China, you see these incredible airports, and you land – we’ve become a third world country. So the worst of all things has happened.”
Many netizens echoed his statement. A Twitter user said, “The only thing Trump said right is when he praised Dubai Airport.” More info
