‘Bush should not say brother kept us safe’

18 Oct, 2015

In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Wallace asks Trump about his comments on George W. Bush and 9/11.

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…I am extremely, extremely tough on people coming into this country. [If I had been president then]…there’s a good chance that those people would not have been in the country…I’m not blaming George Bush, but I don’t want Jeb Bush to say ‘My brother kept us safe’.

Bush responds:

Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things as though he’s still on The Apprentice. 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. And there’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that.
