Donald Trump: Well, that, the war with Iraq which started this whole thing, the whole thing starts with the war in Iraq. You know, Saddam Hussein was a terrible guy but one thing about him, he killed terrorists. Now Iraq is Harvard for terrorism. You want to become a terrorist, you go to Iraq. Saddam Hussein understood and he killed terrorists. Bad guy. But if the president and other people, and frankly, Obama was no better because the way he got us out was a disaster. Look what’s happened since then. A disaster. Shouldn’t have been there, shouldn’t have got out the way we got out. But if the president went to the beach, we would have been better off, believe me.
