Trump mocked Bush: Here we are, like the dummies of the world
Here we are, like the dummies of the world," Trump mocked former Us president over Invading Iraq and called it 'the worst decision ever made'.
US President Donald Trump on Saturday has attacked former President George W. Bush verbally over his decision to launch a bloody war against Iraq.
"That was Bush. Another real genius," Trump mocked former Us president over Invading Iraq.
President Trump has called the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, "the single worst decision ever made."
Speaking at a closed-door event with Republican donors in Florida, Trump undermined the former president’s intelligence by comparing the decision to "throwing a big fat brick into a hornet's nest."
"Here we are, like the dummies of the world, because we had bad politicians running our country for a long time," said US President, according to a recording his remarks, obtained by CNN.
"That was Bush. Another real genius," President Trump joked. "That turned out to be wonderful intelligence."
In early 2003, the US, backed by the UK, invaded Iraq under the pretext that the regime of Saddam possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMD). No such weapons, however, were ever found in Iraq.
More than one million Iraqis were killed as a result of the invasion, and the subsequent occupation of the country, according to the California-based investigative organization Project Censored.
The UK's Iraq War inquiry, known as the Chilcot Inquiry, concluded in its 6,000-page report that the policy on the Iraq invasion was based on "flawed" intelligence about the country's supposed WMD.
Many have called for Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair to be put on trial for war crimes in Iraq.
The US invasion of Iraq removed former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's regime, but led to chaos in the country.
That resulted in the rise of terrorism in Iraq as states like Saudi Arabia started promoting Salafism and Takfirism in Iraq.
