"Those people that knocked down the World Trade Center most likely, under the Trump policy, wouldn’t have been here to knock down the World Trade Center," Trump said, referring to his contentious "Muslim Ban."

The remarks were one of a series of comments Trump made while addressing past controversies at a rally in Daytona Beach. In addition to bringing up his claim that people in New Jersey danced in celebration on 9/11, he also pushed back on criticism about his comments on disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski and Fox News' Megyn Kelly.

Trump also pushed back on reports that his campaign is in chaos, telling supporters at the Florida rally it has "never been this united." The billionaire indicated things have never been better.

"I think, I think we've never been this united, and I just want to thank everybody for being here. This is incredible,” Trump said.

The GOP nominee took aim at his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, suggesting that ISIS give her "an award" because she was "the founder of ISIS." Trump also said it would be "embarrassing" to lose to her.

"Wouldn’t that be embarrassing to lose to crooked Hillary Clinton?" Trump said. "That would be terrible."

Trump also condemned the current Democratic president, Barack Obama as "incompetent," following a report yesterday that the U.S. government paid $400 million dollars cash--and $1.7 billion total--to Iran.

"We've been humiliated by President Obama and his policies," he said, later adding that he would like to play Obama in golf to determine the presidency.
