Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is not backing down from his claim that “thousands of people” in Arab communities in New Jersey were cheering on 9/11.

Trump defended himself by telling an NBC News reporter that he has “the world’s greatest memory” and that everybody knows that.

“He was adamant,” NBC News reporter Katy Tur told MSNBC after a lengthy phone call with Trump. 

Trump said Monday that he wants apologies from those who doubt his recollection of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“I want an apology,” he tweeted. “Many people have tweeted that I am right.”
