The CNN South Carolina town hall 2016: Who won free for all GOP Republican debate there
The GOP Republican debate on CNN was interesting. CNN Republican town hall was full of fire and attacks as all the previous debates have been. To be true, the Republican presidential hopefuls are becoming more and more belligerent than ever before.
The man who seems to be under attack from all the sides and who is leading all the polls right now is none other inimitable Donald Trump. Merely a few days ago he was attacked by President Barack Obama. He said that he doesnâ€™t fit to be the US president and added that the US voters are not fools to elect someone like Trump as commander-in-chief.
In the meantime Donald Trump attacked both Pope Francis and former president George W. Bush the brother of Jeb Bush who is also seeking nomination or the White House 2016. He also laughed at a report that he’d supported the Iraq war in September 2002 and tore into the last GOP president, asserting that he only went to war to finish George H.W. Bush’s business. Jeb Bush offered a much sunnier take on the Bush family, and John Kasich urged Americans to “slow down” in life during the second night of CNN’s Republican town hall, just two days away from South Carolina’s primary.
In the meantime this time Donald Trump didnâ€™t call George W Bush an outright liar that he has been doing for several weeks and added “I don’t know what he did,” while attacking him. Oran Smith, a prominent evangelical leader in South Carolina, pressed Trump to take back his attack on the 43rd president from the last Republican presidential debate. But Trump wouldn’t give an inch, attacking Bush for going to war with a country that wasn’t involved in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks.
When asked if he believes George W Bush lied about Iraq war he said “I think the son, being loyal to the father, I think he really wanted to go into Iraq, even if it wasn’t the right thing to doâ€. Pressed again on whether Bush lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, Trump said: “I would probably say that something was going on. I don’t know why he went in. I don’t know why he went in — because honestly, there was no reason to go in. They did not knock down the World Trade Center. Iraq did not knock it down.”
