Bush “absolutely” should have been impeached over the Iraq War.
Trump said he was the “only one on the stage” to say that invading Iraq would destabilize the Middle East.
“I was against the war even though I’m the most militaristic person there is,” he said. “I said don’t go on this stage, don’t go on the -- don’t do this war. If you do this war, you’re going to destabilize the entire Middle East. That’s exactly what happened. That’s why we have the migration and all of the other problems that we have right now in the Middle East.”
When played a tape of his comments with in 2008 saying impeachment would “absolutely” be a wonderful thing, Trump again did not directly respond.

I see all the soldiers that died, I see the wounded warriors all over who I love, who I work with, and I’ll tell you what, it was a horrible mistake. We spent $2 trillion on that war and we have nothing. “
