Trump Clarifies He's 'Not Blaming' President George W. Bush for 9/11
Pundits say Donald Trump placed himself on precariously shaky ground by evoking 9/11 at Saturday’s GOP debate.
In one of the more explosive moments of the night, Trump appeared to blame President George W. Bush for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York City.
“I lost hundreds of friends. The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush,” said Trump, as the audience broke out into loud boos.
“He kept us safe? That’s not safe.”
Trump later clarified his remarks in an interview with CBS News.
“I am not blaming [President Bush], although ... the CIA said there was a lot of information that something like that was going to happen,” said the GOP presidential front-runner.
“I'm not blaming anybody. It's a tragedy.”
