Donald Trump to NYC Mosque Owner: Let's Make a Deal!

by at . Comments

Call us crazy, but we think Donald Trump likes attention. He seems to chime in on almost every pop culture news story, most recently slamming Steven Slater for his unprofessional actions.

Now, Trump has gotten involved in a far more pressing, global issue: he's actually contacted Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the most prominent owner of the planned Islamic Cultural Center in NYC, and made an offer on that controversial property.

TMZ has acquired the letter Trump sent to that site's owners, offering them 25% more than the amount for which they purchased the property and saying they must build any other mosque at least five blocks from the grounds of 9/11.

The real estate mogul says he made the offer "because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse."

Replied the attorney for the investor in the real estate partnership that controls the site: This is "just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight." 

Probably. But you gotta give the Donald props for creativity.
