Donald Trump in 2007: Bush's War Was Based On Lies, Iraq Will Explode "The Day We Pull Out"

|

In 2007 in an interview with Wolf Blitzer, Donald Trump spoke about the Bush administration and the Iraq War, correctly predicting, "the day we pull out, it is going to explode." "Because they are in a civil war, whether we want to admit it or not."

"Look, everything in Washington has been a lie. Weapons of mass destruction. Was a total lie. A way of attacking Iraq, which he thought was going to be easy and it turned out it was the exact opposite."

"Everything is a lie. It is all a big lie."

DONALD TRUMP: President Bush says he is religious. And yet, 400,000 people, the way I count it, and probably millions have been badly maimed and injured. What's going on? What's going on?

And the day we pull out, it is going to explode. We're keeping the lid on a little bit -- it is still a catastrophe. But the day we pull out -- because they are in a civil war, whether we want to admit it or not, they are in a civil war.

WOLF BLITZER: What do you think of these scandals that are exploding in Washington right now?

As we speak, the Attorney General is under fire, Alberto Gonzalez, what do you akke of this as an executive trying to watch an administration?

DONALD TRUMP: Look, everything in Washington has been a lie. Weapons of mass destruction. Was a total lie. A way of attacking Iraq, which he thought was going to be easy and it turned out it was the exact opposite.

He reads 60 books a year, a book a week. Thats... Do you think the president reads a book a week? I don't think so.

He doesn't watch television. Now one thing I know is, when I'm on telvision, I watch. Because you do. Your own ego says lets watch, good or bad, lets watch.

He doesn't watch television. So he's on with you, he doesn't watch. Does anybody really beleive that?

Now they are doing this whole scandal with the U.S. attorneys, they're finding emails and it has proven to be a lie.

Everything is a lie. It is all a big lie.
