The Republican frontrunner was introduced by Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan at a rally, where he called Ryan a great coach “who won championships” in New York, which is untrue.

"I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart," he said. "Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down on 7-Eleven, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I've ever seen in action."
