Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York, and current advisor to Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump, has defended the Trump’s statement that the US should have taken Iraq’s oil.
When asked in an interview if that was legal, Giuliani, a lawyer, said: “Of course it’s legal. It’s a war. Until the war is over, anything is legal.”
But Giuliani went on to explain: “[Trump] didn’t say we should take [the oil] for ourselves necessarily. He said we should secure it, so it doesn’t get taken by terrorist forces.”
