Donald Trump drastically exaggerated his supposed warning about Osama Bin Laden in the 2000 book "The America We Deserve," going so far as to claim he called for the terrorist masterminds capture before 9/11. The problem with Trump's claim is that it's simply not true. Donald Trump didn't mention al-Qaeda a single time in the book and only referred to Bin Laden one time - when he criticized President Clinton for not killing Bin Laden in air strikes he ordered - but he never followed up his criticisms with a call to action against the terrorist.
