Donald #Trump: Wall Street would continue to benefit from illegal Iraq war

BuzzFeed News uncovered audio file of an interview Trump gave to the Howard Stern Show in September 2002, in which he expressed support for an invasion of Iraq. Are you for invading Iraq, Trump was asked: ‘Yeah, I guess so,’ answered Trump.

Trump said in an interview with Fox News one day into the invasion on March 21, 2003, the audio of which was obtained by BuzzFeed News: ‘The Iraq War looks like a tremendous success from a military standpoint and I think this is really nothing compared to what you’re gonna see after the war is over: I think Wall Street’s just gonna go up like a rocket, even beyond, and it’s gonna continue and, you know, we have a strong and powerful country and let’s hope it all works out.’

    This is great he’s throwing this back in their face. But lets also talk about what Trumps says about trade. Like NAFTA was a big mistake too. And he wants a 30% tariff. And the network pundits can’t figure out why the working Joe citizen love this guy. Well they might git it alright, but they sure aren’t going to be mentioning it while their paycheck depends on them slamming him.

    Vote Rump! They can all KMA.

    Why would anybody go back over 10 years ago and cherry pick a comment. This is a stupid smear tactic. People change and often times for the better. I certainly did. Just because Trump is a loudmouth bully we have to assume he is dishonest? NO! Cherry picking 10 year old comments is dishonest.

  5. Edward J Max says:

    Do some research. See what Trump said to Joe Scarborough.

    It makes a buck, so it’s ok. Not a difficult question like, say, choosing a salad topping. But the man does have “style”, in a certain shlock overproduced sort of way. If the Billionaire klatch flipped out over a black president. Just imagine what they’d have to swallow over an orange one – with beet-red flashes?

  7. YoLithos says:

    Before WWII, when people brought up Hitler talking in public about getting rid of all “undesirables” (anyone he didn’t have a use for), of eliminating them ans his long list of favorite scapegoats, the shills and deluded patsies said that “he didn’t mean it”, “it was taken out of context”, “it’s just politics”, “it was just that once”.

    When jupiter trines pluto — most people in the world will feel happy, and the pope would not have to work as hard

  9. Flopot says:

    Stop painting Trump as a special sort of psychopath. He is no different from Obama or Bush — Islamophobia was nurtured by those last two bastards. Trump is just riding their Nazi bandwagon.

    That’s right — we already have Hitler’s galore in the West and even in the one place that was supposedly righteous…

    So plonk the Kabuki King in the White House.
