The anti-American activist group Code Pink praised Donald Trump after the Saturday night GOP debate. Code Pink founder Medea Benjamin agreed with Trump that Bush lied and the War in Iraq was a major mistake.
In 2015 Code Pink activists barged into the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing with former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, Madeleine Albright, and George Shultz.
The far left protesters interrupted the meeting and tried a citizens’ arrest on 91 year-old Henry Kissinger.
These radicals may have praised Trump but clearly they are going to vote with the Socialists.
The Hill reported:
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is being praised by Code Pink, a group working to end U.S. wars and militarism that has protested the Iraq War.
Trump garnered support from the organization during the GOP debate Saturday night when he called the Iraq War a mistake and accused the George W. Bush administration of lying before the invasion.
“Obviously the war in Iraq was a big, fat mistake,” Trump said during the debate.
“George Bush made a mistake,” the billionaire continued. “Obviously we can make mistakes, but that one was a beauty.”
Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin said in an email to the Huffington Post that she “loved” the debate.
“It felt surreal to hear Donald Trump, the leading Republican contender for President, saying what we at CODEPINK have been shouting to the winds for 14 years now: that Bush and his cronies lied about WMDs, that the Iraq war was catastrophic, and that Bush never ‘kept us safe’ because 9/11 happened on his watch.”
Benjamin said that she also agrees with Trump that the war wasted money that could have been used to rebuild the country’s infrastructure — a theme the group uses in a campaign called “Bring out war dollars home.”
Someone should really sit Donald Trump down for a foreign policy discussion before he blows up his campaign.
