NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Donald Trump unveiled his plan to recreate the twin towers at Ground Zero at a press conference Wednesday, in an attempt to trump the Libeskind plan for a stand-alone Freedom Tower.

The real estate mogul said he aims to build two 111-story buildings, one foot taller than the 1360-foot buildings destroyed on Sept. 11, 2001.

The Trump plan would require scrapping the Libeskind plan for a 1,776-foot Freedom Tower, symbolizing the year of American independence, which continues to be hotly debated.

"In a nutshell, Freedom Tower should not be allowed to be built, it's not appropriate for downtown Manhattan, it's not appropriate for Manhattan, it's not appropriate for the United States and it's not appropriate for freedom," Trump said.

Bout damn time. Now this is a good idea. I know the non Americans could care less, but what do you Americans think? Freedom tower plan is stupid. I like Trumps plan.

They knock it down, you build it up again. Bloody good idea.

Ah, how nice. Rebuilding the towers is just the right thing to do if you ask me. I'm not American, though, so maybe you weren't...

I personally like the new design and I hope it gets built that way. :)

The U.S. loves to place the nationalistic "freedom" label on certain things that it produces just to spite the rest of the world (remember 'freedom' fries?). I for one agree with this; I'd like to see the twin towers rebuilt just as they were and for the same purpose instead of a giant memorial in their place.

They won't be the same. Hopefully these ones won't crumple like a deck of cards if a plane or something else hits them. Well it's a slap in the face of old Osama, anyway. What's that song? With the words... "I get knocked down, but I get up again, you aren't ever gonna keep me down..."? You should have that as their theme tune.
