Donald Trump Sets Off Firestorm With Comments on 9-11 Terrorist Attacks
Donald Trump set off a firestorm on Friday with comments during a Bloomberg interview that implied George W. Bush was somehow to blame for the 9-11 terrorist attacks that killed 3,000 Americans.
NBC News reported:
Presidential candidate Donald Trump set off another political firestorm Friday after implying that President George W. Bush was to blame for the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, drawing the ire of his Republican rivals.
“”When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,” Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg TV.
The comment reignited a long-standing Twitter feud with the 43rd president’s brother Jeb Bush, who called Trump “pathetic.”
