Donald Trump kicked his ongoing battle with the Bush political dynasty into high gear. Trump now claims that he knew about 9/11 and it would not have happened on his watch.
Trump’s campaign to be the Republican Party’s presidential candidate continues. One man he is up against is Jeb Bush, brother of George W., who was President when commercial planes were flown into the World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon, along with flight 93 which crashed into a field as passengers fought back against hijackers.
How would Trump have saved 2977 lives that day?
Well of course his immigration policy would have been much stricter and under his stewardship the hijackers wouldn’t have reached US soil.
I am extremely, extremely tough on illegal immigration. I’m extremely tough on people coming into this country. Since Bush became President, i knew something BAD is going to happen to this country. World Trade Center came down, so when Bush said we were safe? That’s not safe. I believe that if I were running things, I doubt those people would have been in the country. So, there’s a good chance those people would not have been in our country.”
All the hijackers entered the United States legally, with just two of the 19 overstaying their visas.
Sounds like typically outlandish rhetoric that exploits America’s unresolved emotions surrounding that fateful day.
