Tens of thousands of people have taken part in rallies around the world on Sunday, calling on leaders to halt climate change on the eve of a major conference in Paris. The nearly two-week conference comes amid a state of emergency in France imposed after the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that bans marches so many of the rallies are taking place outside the country.
By Megan Cassella WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump insisted on Sunday he was "100 percent right" when he said he saw Muslims in Jersey City, New Jersey, cheering the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center even though fact-checkers have debunked his claim. In a phone interview on NBC's Meet the Press, Trump said he was getting an "unbelievable response" from "hundreds" of people who told him they also saw televised Muslim celebrations of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in Manhattan. Trump came under fire last week after making remarks at a rally and in a nationally televised appearance that he had seen thousands of people in Jersey City cheer the collapse of the Twin Towers in Manhattan.
