Donald Trump just couldn't resist going after Jeb Bush during tonight's debate over his brother George's decision to invade Iraq after the September 11 terrorist attacks, setting up an intense argument with his nemesis that saw the entire Bush clan invoked. 'The World Trade Center came down during the reign of George Bush,' Trump shouted during the argument. Moderator John Dickerson tee'd Trump up for the verbal assault by asking if he still believes the ex-Republican president should have been impeached over Iraq following the discovery that the country's dictator did not have weapons of mass destruction as the U.S. government claimed. 'Obviously the war in Iraq is a big fat mistake,' Trump said. Jabbing Jeb, Trump mocked his Republican rival's struggle last year to defend his brother's record while admitting that the war was based on incorrect information and was therefore a mistake. 'It took him five days, he went back - it was a mistake, it wasn't a mistake - it took him five days before his people told him what to say and he ultimately said it was a mistake.' Trump said, 'Obviously it was a mistake. George Bush made a mistake, we can make mistakes, but that one was a beauty. We should have never been in Iraq. We have destabilized the Middle East.' The leading GOP candidate was visibly and vocally incensed as he responded to Dickerson's question about impeachment, 'You do whatever you want, you call it whatever you want. 'I want to tell you, they lied, they said there were weapons of mass destruction, there were none and they knew there were none. There were no weapons of mass destruction,' he declared. Bush demanded to respond to the assault on his family and said, 'So here's the deal. I'm sick and tired of Barack Obama blaming my brother for all of the problems that he's had.
