Hillary agrees with.... George Bush!??
Here's one phrase Hillary Clinton is seldom heard uttering aloud: 'George Bush was right.'
But that is what the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee told an audience at the University of Minnesota on Tuesday while discussing Donald Trump’s polarizing proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US.
'I want to remind us, particularly our Republican friends, that George Bush was right,' Clinton said in her remarks just hours before the fifth televised Republican debate on CNN.
'Six days after 9/11, he went to a Muslim community center and here's what he said: "Those who feel like they can intimidate our fellow citizens to take out their anger don't represent the best of America, they represent the worst of humankind and they should be ashamed of that kind of behavior,”' the former first lady told her supporters, according to ABC News.
The former secretary of state was referring to President Bush's memorable 'Islam is Peace' speech, delivered at the Islamic Center of Washington DC on September 17, 2001.
