Donald Trump today implied that President George W. Bush was at least partially responsible for 9/11. Via Talking Points Memo:
“He was President,” Trump said. “Blame him, or don’t blame him, but he was President. The World Trade Center came down during his reign.” Trump asserted that unlike the George W. Bush, he would be “a leader” who could command the United States during national crises. “I think I’m much more competent than all of them,” Trump said, referring to George W. Bush and President Barack Obama. “Say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,” Trump told Bloomberg.
