The former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani has argued that “anything is legal” in war, defending Donald Trump’s call to “take the oil” of Iraq, one of the Republican nominee’s proposals that appears to violate international law.
“Leave a force back there, and take it, and make sure it’s distributed in a proper way”
Giuliani told ABC This Week host George Stephanopoulos.
“That’s not legal, is it?” the host asked.
“Of course it’s legal – it’s war,” Giuliani answered, laughing. “Until the war is over, anything is legal.”
