Howard Stern’s name was brought up during the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. There was a question of whether or not Trump had supported the Iraq war before it began.
“When I did an interview with Howard Stern, very lightly, the first time anyone’s asked me that, I said, very lightly, ‘I don’t know, maybe, who knows?’ essentially,” Trump said during the presidential debate.
Howard Stern responded to Trump’s comments on his Sirius radio show. “Trump was on our show years ago and said yeah, you know, he was kind of for the Iraq war, us going into Iraq.”
“He was saying he really wasn’t for it, and so they were forced to mention my name,” Stern continued.
Lester Holt the moderator of the debate stated that the record shows Mr.Trump was for the war. The clip above gives you a better understanding of Donald Trump’s position from 2002-2004. Trump was never a politician and obviously showed more interested in the economy than foreign wars.
“I think the Iraqi situation is a problem, and the economy is a much bigger problem.” – Donald Trump, 2003, before the invasion of Iraq.
