Donald Trump has been all over the map when it comes to his opinion on the U.S.' actions in Iraq and Libya.

"Gadhafi in Libya is killing thousands of people. … Now we should go in, we should stop this guy, which would be very easy and very quick," Trump said.

And as BuzzFeed pointed out, a year after Sept. 11, he said this on "The Howard Stern Show."

"Are you for invading Iraq?" Howard Stern asked.

"Yeah, I guess so. I wish the first time it was done correctly," Donald Trump responded.
