    Two Republican candidates took their battle over comments about the 43rd president and 9/11 to the Sunday morning shows, NBC News reported.

    Donald Trump told Fox News he took issue with Jeb Bush's claims that "my brother kept us safe."

    "Jeb said we were safe with my brother, we were safe," Trump explained. "Well, the World Trade Center just fell down. Now, am I trying to blame him? I'm not blaming anybody.”

    Jeb Bush continued to defend his brother on CNN Sunday morning.

    "Look, my brother responded to a crisis, and he did it as you would hope a president would do — united the country, he organized the country and he kept us safe," he said.
