Trump: If the GOP Can’t Admit Iraq Was a Mistake, We’re Going to Lose Againby Josh Feldman | 2:12 pm, February 14th, 2016
Donald Trump has been making it clear this weekend that the Iraq war was a disaster, and on Fox & Friends this morning, he warned the rest of the GOP that they need to come to terms with it.
He again claimed that he was “the only one with the vision to have said ‘don’t do that,'” despite there being absolutely zero evidence Trump said anything negative about the Iraq war before it began.
Trump acknowledged that while he did get booed for trashing George W. Bush and the Iraq war at the debate, he’s not saying this stuff to win elections, but because “all smart people know that the war in Iraq was a huge bungle.”
“The war was a horrible thing,” Trump concluded. “If we’re not gonna admit that, you’re gonna have yet another election where the Democrats are gonna win.”
