Donald Trump blasted former President George W. Bush Saturday night at the GOP debate, contending he lied about weapons of mass destruction in order to take the U.S. to war in Iraq.
The billionaire businessman said it was a big “mistake” to go into Iraq and argued Bush intentionally lied to send troops into battle.
“They lied!” Trump said of the Bush administration.
When Jeb Bush argued that his brother kept America safe, Trump hit back.
“The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe?” Trump said. “I lost hundreds of friends [in the 9/11 attack].”
