Donald Trump And Jeb Bush Spar Over Iraq War

Let the blame game begin! On Wednesday evening, Donald Trump experienced a few heated exchanges with fellow GOP presidential candidate, Jeb Bush. During one of their exchanges, Trump said that Jeb's brother George “gave us Barack Obama.” Trump argued “Because it was such a disaster, the last three months, that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected." Trump made his comments during a debate over the validity of the war in Iraq.

This wasn't the first time Jeb Bush has been called to answer for his brother's actions. Bush responded “One thing about my brother, he kept us safe. I don’t know if you remember.” Trump then said, “I think it’s important because it’s about judgment. I didn’t want to go into Iraq and I fought it. I am the only person ... that fought very, very hard against us — and I wasn’t a sitting politician — against going into Iraq. In fact, a delegation was sent to my office because I was so vocal about it.”

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) jumped in stating “I’ve made my career as an opponent of the Iraq War." After that, Trump gave Dr. Ben Carson a high-five when he said that he also “suggested to President Bush that we not go to war.”
