Trump Admits Watching Wrong Footage

WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is making a rare admission he was wrong — in claiming he saw a video of a U.S. cash payment going to Iran.

Trump tweeted Aug. 5 that “The plane I saw on television was the hostage plane in Geneva, Switzerland, not the plane carrying $400 million in cash going to Iran!”

Trump has been expressing outrage about a $400 million payment the U.S. made to Iran this year.

It was delivered on the same day that Iran released four Americans they had detained. Republicans call it ransom; the Obama Administration says it was money the U.S. legally owed Iran.

Trump said Aug. 3 he saw video showing the money being delivered. The campaign acknowledged Aug. 4 that this was incorrect, yet Trump repeated the claim hours later at a rally.
