The feud between Donald Trump and Jeb Bush over the Sept. 11 terrorist attack against America as gotten all fired up on Sunday as Trump argued that his hard-line stance on immigration policy would have prevented the attacks and kept Americans safe, while Bush defended his brother’s handling of them.
Trump was asked during an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” hosted by Chris Wallace what he would have done differently in response to an earlier suggestion that former President George W. Bush was partially at fault for the attacks. And Trump insisted he is not blaming the former president for them.
“Jeb [Bush] said ‘We were safe with my brother. We were safe.’ Well, the World Trade Center just went down. Now, am I trying to blame him? I’m not blaming anybody, but the World Trade Center came down, so when he said we were safe, we were not safe. We lost 3,000 people. It was one of the greatest — probably the greatest catastrophe ever in this country,” the Republican presidential said.
If he were president, Trump said, it would have been much different.
“With that being said,” he also added, “I’m not blaming George Bush, but I don’t want Jeb Bush to say ‘My brother kept us safe,’ because Sept. 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country.”
On the other hand in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union,” Bush said Trump doesn’t seriously address how he would handle foreign policy if eventually elected as president .
“Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things as though he’s still on ‘The Apprentice,'” the former Florida governor(jeb bush) said of his rival for the Republican presidential nomination.
“My brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country, he organized our country and he kept us safe,” Jeb Bush added. “And there’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that.”
