Trump: Iraq War Was a ‘Disaster’ and a ‘Mistake’

Donald Trump, in the most recent Republican candidates’ debate, once again slammed former President George W. Bush for invading Iraq in 2003, Breitbart News reported.

The real-estate tycoon also pointed out that the 9/11 attacks occurred while Bush was in the White House. He accused the 43rd president of failing to keep the country safe.

Trump doubled down on his controversial remarks during an appearance on Fox News. “Something’s going to have to happen with the party or we’re going to lose yet another election,” he said. “I’m not even doing it to win election; I’m doing it out of common sense. The war was a horrible thing. If we’re not going to admit that, you’re going to have yet another election where the Democrats are going to win.”

Trump declared that “the Iraq war was a disaster,” adding: “It was a mistake. We spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives, thousands of lives, wounded warriors who we love all over the place. What do we have? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Iran is taking over Iraq as sure as you’re sitting there. … They get the oil, they get everything. … I’m the only one with the vision to have said don’t do it. And I wasn’t even a politician when I said that.”
