On a heated exchange between Bush and Trump during the ninth Republican presidential debate on Saturday night Trump blamed Jeb’s brother, former US President George W. Bush, for the collapse of the World Trade Center and the death of 3,000 Americans in New York on September 11, 2001.
Trump wrote:The World Trade Center came down during your brother’s reign, remember that.
Jeb Bush wrote:I am sick and tired of him [Trump] going after my family.
Marco Rubio wrote:At least on behalf of me and my family, I thank God all the time it was George W. Bush in the White House on 9/11 and not Al Gore. And you can — I think you can look back in hindsight and say a couple of things, but he kept us safe.
Trump wrote:How did he keep us safe when the World Trade Center - excuse me - I lost hundreds of friends. The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush. He kept us safe? That is not safe. That is not safe, Marco. That is not safe.
