According to Donald Trump, landing at New York City's LaGuardia Airport is like landing in "a third world country.

""It's one thing to have $20 trillion in debt and our airports and roads are good — our airports are like from a third world country," he said during Monday's presidential debate.

"You land at LaGuardia, Newark, LAX, and you come in from Dubai and Qatar, you come in from China, you see these incredible airports — We've become a third-world country.

"Trump isn't the first to criticize LaGuardia's design.

Joe Biden made the same "third world" comparison in 2014, and the airport has been ranked in many surveys as the worst in America.

New York City may agree too, considering the city approved a $4 billion redesign of LaGuardia in March.
