Trump slams Bush
President Bush, you should be fired.
The Donald has turned thumbs down on the President's war in Iraq, calling it a "mess."
"What was the purpose of the whole thing?" Donald Trump asks in an Esquire interview. "Hundreds of young people killed. And what about the people coming back with no arms and no legs?"
"The Apprentice" star said it's folly to think Iraq can be turned into a "wonderful democracy."
The real estate baron said if he were President, Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden "would have been caught long ago."
"Tell me, how is it possible that we can't find a guy who's 6-foot-6 and supposedly needs a dialysis machine?" Trump said. "Can you explain that one to me? We have all our energies focused on one place - where they shouldn't be focused."
Trump, a Republican, has flirted with the idea of running for President.
