A political blogger says the election of President Trump will go down in American history as an event at least as disastrous as the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“The 9/11 attacks were a horrific event in US history, but the election of Donald Trump will be seen as equally disastrous, if not more so,” Charles Johnson, founder of Little Green Footballs, said on Twitter Monday.

In subsequent tweets, Mr. Johnson stood by his claim, arguing Mr. Trump has “already destroyed much of what’s good about America, and it’s getting worse every day.”

Sixteen years ago today, 2,996 people were killed when al-Qaeda terrorists hijacked four passenger airliners and crashed them into the North and South World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon.

The fourth plane, United Airlines Flight 93, was thought to be on route to Washington, D.C. It crashed in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, after passengers fought back and tried to regain control of the plane.
