Cheney: Trump "Sounds Like A Liberal Democrat," We Kept Nation Safe For "Seven And A Half Years"


Dick Cheney reacts to Donald Trump attacking then-President George W. Bush's handling of 9/11 at Saturday night's GOP debate moderated by CBS News. Cheney told FOX News Channel's Bret Baier that Trump sounds like a "liberal Democrat."

"He sounds like a liberal Democrat to me," Cheney said on Monday's Special Report. "It's wrong, and he's, I think, deliberately promoting those views in order to advance his political interests."

"The question of WMD charge that the administration lied, that was thoroughly investigated by the Robb-Silberman Commission. They found absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support that," Cheney said.

Cheney on keeping America safe after 9/11:

CHENEY: The other areas, for example, if you look at what we did in the aftermath of 9/11, we did in fact keep the nation safe for seven and a half years. The president put in place important programs, terrorist surveillance program, enhanced interrogation techniques. All of those things gave us the information that we needed to act. And we had the tremendous support of the American military. They did a superb job. So for Mr. Trump to suggest that just, in my mind, is way off base. He clearly doesn’t understand or has not spent any time learning the facts about that period.
