Trump has long claimed that he was always against the 2003 Iraq invasion, and he uses it as evidence of his foresight in foreign policy. But BuzzFeed unearthed a 2002 clip of Trump telling talk show host Howard Stern that he wasn't opposed to invading the Middle Eastern country.
 
"Yeah, I guess so,” Trump told Stern when asked if he was in favor of an Iraq invasion. “I wish the first time it was done correctly.” 
 
Confronted with this contradiction at a South Carolina town hall, Trump said he didn't remember making the comment but admitted, "I could have said that. ... I wasn't a politician."
 
"But by the time the war started, I was against the war," Trump said. "And shortly thereafter I was really against it."
