Trump’s support for Iraq

Hillary Clinton challenged Donald Trump on his consistent denials that he supported the Iraq War before the invasion. “I have taken my responsibility for my decision. He refuses to take responsibility for his support,” Clinton said. But Trump disputed Clinton’s account, saying he was consistently against the invasion. So, did Trump always oppose the invasion? Let’s re-up our previous fact-checks. FACTS: The only report that found Trump speaking about the Iraq war before it happened was by Buzzfeed News, which reported that in a 2002 interview with Howard Stern, Trump was directly asked if he would support the invasion of Iraq, which didn’t begin until March 2003. “Yeah, I guess so,” Trump responded. “I wish the first time it was done correctly.”
