Rep. Peter King: Trump Should Apologize to George W. Bush About 9/11 and Iraq

Donald Trump should apologize to former President George W. Bush for his comments regarding the 9/11 attacks and the Iraq War because his "calling President Bush a liar is to me almost sacrilegious," Rep. Peter King told Newsmax TV on Friday.

"He should first of all issue an apology to President Bush, say he got caught up in the force of the campaign — and he just said something he shouldn't have said," the New York Republican told "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth. "He also shouldn't have said that President Bush was lying about going into Iraq."

King, who sits on the House Homeland Security Committee, said that Trump needed to right the record because of Bush's active involvement in New York City after the attacks that killed more than 2,600 at the World Trade Center alone.

"I know the way he got personally involved," he told Hayworth. "I know of the many families he met with personally and generally. He was not to be making public these meetings.

"He authorized the $20 billion in aid to New York City afterwards to rebuild. He visited there a number of times.

"I was with him when he came down three days after 9/11 on Sept. 14 — and I know the families he stayed in contact with since then," King said. "I know what this has meant to him and how personally he took it.

"When Donald Trump — somehow, in anyway — would malign President Bush for his efforts before, during, and after 9/11, it's just terribly wrong."
