Early Sunday, Donald Trump sat down for an interview with Chris Wallace from Fox News Sunday. In the interview he suggested that with his tough stances on immigration, that it might have prevented the terrorist attacks that occurred on 9/11.
Trump said to Wallace, ” I doubt that those people would have been in the country.”
Trump who has been feuding with Jeb Bush ever since Trump said on Bloomberg Television that to a degree his brother former President George W. Bush, was responsible for 9/11.
Jeb Bush defended his brother and released a web ad that questioned Trump’s ability to be commander in chief of the country’s military.
On Sunday morning’s CNN’s State of the Union, Bush stuck to his stance on Trump’s ability to lead.
“It looks as though he doesn’t-he’s not taking the responsibility, the possibility of being president of the Unites States really seriously,” Bush said in the interview. “For him, it looks as though it’s – he’s an actor playing a role of the candidate for president.”
Trump stood strong with his opinions as well. When speaking with Chris Wallace, Trump again noted how the World Trade Center fell on the watch of former President Bush.
Wallace asked Trump what he would have done if he was president during 9/11.
Trump replied saying, ” Well I would have been much different. I am extremely, extremely tough on illegal immigrations. I’m extremely tough on people coming into this country.”
He continued to say,” I believe that if I were running things, I doubt those families would have – I doubt that those people would have been in the country. So there’s a good change that those people would not have been in our country.”
Jeb Bush, took to twitter afterwards and tweeted that it was pathetic that Trump criticized the president for 9/11.
A spokesman for George W. Bush told media that he had no intention of commenting on the remarks made by Trump.
