A New Jersey newspaper says it's searched its archives and there is no evidence to support Donald Trump's claims that Muslims in Jersey city celebrated the 9/11 attacks. The Star-Ledger's comments are just the latest from a growing number of people calling Trump's comments false. ABC's Kenneth Moton has more. - There were plenty of stories covered post 9/11 regarding Muslims, concerns of violent backlash, worries about vandalism at mosques. But the Star-Ledger newspaper in New Jersey says Muslims dancing in the streets as the towers fell in lower Manhattan, never happened. The paper and a top state official at the time of the attacks, former Attorney-General John Farmer Jr, say Donald Trump's claims are unfounded and false.
