Ted Cruz owes New York an apology

Second, the number of visitors to our city for business, for entertainment, for sightseeing and for countless other reasons has increased at least 40% since the 9/11 attacks, a clear indication that New Yorkers’ example of moving forward with our lives despite the Islamic extremist terrorists’ actions and threats is having an impact on the rest of the world.

Indeed I truly believed that 9/11 brought New Yorkers together with all other Americans because all we were doing is what any patriotic American would do. No different than the people of Boston after the Marathon bombing or the people of San Bernardino, who I visited with two weeks ago, did after the jihadist attack of Dec. 2, 2015.
