Trump says he was against Iraq war all along, disputes Clinton

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump reads off a teleprompter as he speaks at the Cleveland Arts and Social Sciences Academy in ClevelandRepublican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday said he was against the Iraq war all along despite Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s charge that he supported it. Trump used the start of a speech about education at a charter school in Cleveland to push back at Clinton’s statement that his position on Iraq is pretty much like hers: She voted for the 2003 war as a U.S. senator from New York but has since disavowed the vote. At an NBC forum on Wednesday night, Clinton pointed to a 2002 interview Trump gave to radio host Howard Stern to say that Trump had supported the war.
