WASHINGTON, DC - Donald Trump insisted during a Fox News interview that he's not blaming George W. Bush for 9/11, but claimed that if he'd been president, the terror attacks never would have happened.

In an interview on "Fox News Sunday," the real estate tycoon said that since he's "extremely, extremely tough on immigration" the attackers wouldn't have been allowed into the country and therefore wouldn't have been in position to hijack U.S. flights.

"So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country," Trump claimed.

The Republican contender took another swipe at rival Jeb Bush over his claims that his brother brother, George W. Bush, kept the US safe.

"I'm not blaming George Bush," Trump was careful to say. "But I don't want Jeb Bush to say, 'My brother kept us safe,' because September 11 was one of the worst days in the history of this country."

Trump attacked Bush over his brother's tenure on Twitter as well as his interview on Fox aired.

Trump tweeted: "Jeb, why did your brother attack and destabalize the Middle East by attacking Iraq when there were no weapons of mass destruction? Bad info?"

He then also tweeted some advice: "Jeb Bush should stop trying to defend his brother and focus on his own shortcomings and how to fix them."

Jed Bush is pushing back against the criticism though, one that Trump has made repeatedly in recent days.

Bush defended his brother's presidency in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union" Sunday.

"My brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do," said Bush. "He united the country, he organised our country and he kept us safe. And there's no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that," he added.

"And I don't know why he keeps bringing this up. It doesn't show that he's a serious person as it relates to being commander in chief and being the architect of a foreign policy," Bush said.> BNN
