Donald Trump Doesn’t Know We Invaded Iraq After We Invaded Afghanistan

That's his story and he's sticking to it.

During a two-part interview with buddy Bill O’Reilly, Donald Trump tried to show off his foreign policy mojo but wound up revealing how truly ignorant he is on the subject.

Of course, O’Reilly did not mention how Trump’s recent foreign-policy address had been slammed by editorial boards.

O'Reilly did, however challenge Trump on policy. "You did not mention Afghanistan in the address. …What exactly will you do about Afghanistan?" O'Reilly asked.

TRUMP: I’d stay in Afghanistan. It’s probably the one place we should have gone in the Middle East because it’s adjacent and right next to Pakistan, which has nuclear weapons. So I think you have to stay and do the best you can. Not that it’s ever gonna be great but I don’t think we have much of a choice. That’s one place, frankly, instead of going to Iraq, we should have probably gone there first.

Newsflash for Trump: We did go there first. The Afghanistan war began in 2001. We invaded Iraq in 2003. And here’s another newsflash for the birther: Then-candidate Barack Obama – you know, the one you can’t stop bashing – called the Iraq war a “dangerous distraction” from Afghanistan.

Not surprisingly, Trump’s milkshake BFF, Bill O’Reilly, did not point out the YUUUGE mistake.

Watch it above, from the April 28 The O'Reilly Factor.
