Jeb Bush while on CNN, was asked by the anchor about report making the rounds that his campaign team was doing its due diligence to possibly break from the GOP pledge to support the party’s eventual nominee. This is believed to be reactions in the wake of Donald Trump’s repeated threats to run as a third-party candidate.
The former Florida governor responded: “Well, because Donald Trump had threatened to go, once again, to become a third-party candidate. And so, I didn’t know they were doing this, but that’s the smart thing to do in the campaign is to determine exactly what the consequences are for making that kind of decision.”
Bush says if Trump wants to win, he needs to stop the entertainment
“Trump will begin to fall because he’s not a serious candidate,” Bush continued.
With reference to Donald Trump’s struggle to explain the challenges of an aging nuclear defense and delivery system, Bush said: “Listen to his comments as it related to the nuclear triad, for crying out loud. This is the pinnacle of our, of our deterrent to be able to keep, be kept safe, since the post-World War II era. He had no clue when Hugh Hewitt asked him that question. If he is going to be president of the United States, he needs to be a serious person, not someone who views this as some kind of entertainment show.”
Trump is a bully – Jeb Bush
During the last GOP debate, Jeb Bush used the word “serious” numerous times. He claims the real estate mogul could not be trusted with making serious decisions. He summarily saw of Trump, who is still polling top, by describing him as the “chaos candidate.”
The super PAC supporting Bush unveiled a new ad hailing Bush’s performance against Trump at the debate. The ad says Bush is the “one candidate tough enough to take on the bully.”
Bush said: “All of the other candidates seem to be intimidated by him, but I’m not. He’s a bully. He’s not a serious candidate. He has not offered compelling alternatives to the path that we’re on, and we desperately need to change direction as it relates to our national security.”
