Washington: US President Donald Trump said the decision to launch attacks on the Middle East was the “worst single” error in U.S. history. He told this during an interview to Hill TV. He criticized the decision to venture into the Middle East after the attacks of 9/11.
Attacking one of his predecessors, Trump said, President George Bush committed the greatest mistake in American history by venturing into the Middle East.
He is quoted to have said, “We spent $7 trillion dollars in the Middle East,” he continued. “Now if you wanna fix a window some place they say, “oh gee, let’s not do it. Seven trillion, and millions of lives — you know, ’cause I like to count both sides. Millions of lives.
