Iraq War Vets Argue About Trump's Stance on Bush and the Iraq War

Donald Trump's remarks at a recent GOP debate about the Bush administration's decision to invade Iraq has caused quite a stir among Americans - especially military veterans.

In that GOP debate, Trump called that decision a "big fat mistake" that "destabilized the Middle East."

"The war in Iraq, we spent $2 trillion, thousands of lives. We don’t even have it. ... Obviously, it was a mistake," Trump said on the debate stage.

In the video below, two Iraq War veterans offer differing points of views regarding Donald Trump's comments about President George W. Bush and the Iraq War.

Those two Iraq War vets who appeared on Fox News to share their opinions on Trump and his stance were Pete Hegseth, a decorated Army National Guard veteran, and Carl Higbie, a former Navy SEAL. to weigh in.

Hegseth said that Trump's comments "trashing" the Iraq War were an insult to the military members who served there.

On the other hand, Higbie, a former Navy SEAL, said the wisdom of invading Iraq is up for debate, but that he's supporting Trump because of the billionaire's abilities to accomplish goals.

Watch the two Iraq War veterans' exchange below.
