Trump Stands By Claim 'Muslims Cheered 9/11,' Jeb Bush Admits 'Anyone Is Better Than Hillary Clinton'

Donald Trump stands by his claim (a claim referred to on CNN as "shameful") that he saw Muslims celebrating the deaths of Americans during the 9/11 attacks.

Not everyone is skeptical - an adviser has come forward saying Trump is "probably right" about the cheering Muslim-Americans, who Trump claims he saw on TV on the day the World Trade Center attacks occurred, as reported by CNN.

"He's probably right. There's no way to say that it wasn't [broadcast on TV]."

Trump supporters are more likely than other Republican voters to want to deport undocumented immigrants, making Trump fans the most extreme of even the right-wing GOP voting cohort when it comes to this issue of deportation.

Trump supporters are also likely to be white and to oppose bringing Syrian refugees into America. Here they are roughly the same as the supporters of other conservatives like Carson and Cruz, according to NCBC.

A University of California expert wrote in The Washington Post:

"Before Trump announced his candidacy back in June, opinions about immigration had little influence on support for him. But after his first speech as a presidential candidate harshly criticized Mexican immigrants, voters who believed immigration was important flocked to him. Although his support has increased among other Republicans as well, those who prioritize immigration continue to be his strongest supporters.

"Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out."

Trump insists:

"I saw it on television. I saw clips. And so did many other people."

Trump said he is not the only one who remembers seeing the cheering Muslims, and that people have even been calling to back him up ever since he made the controversial 9/11 claim.

"I saw clips. And so did many other people. And many people saw it in person. I've had hundreds of phone calls to the Trump Organization saying, 'We saw it. It was dancing in the streets.'"

Bush did add - in Trump's favor - that he would support Trump over Hillary Clinton should the presidential race come to that.
