Jeb Bush: Trump is ‘a creature of Barack Obama’

“It wasn’t that long ago that people wanted your signature on things”, the former Florida governor observed.

The Republican electorate hates the establishment, and they have no love for the charisma-challenged Bush – Trump was the ideal vehicle for them to express their disgust at the status quo.

Bush took aim at Clinton’s record as a senator, saying only three minor bills she sponsored ultimately became law, and said her time as secretary of state was “mired in controversy, scandal and failure”. Jeb attended a lunch at the Forum Club in Palm Beach on Monday.

“So Donald, I’ll take you on one-on-one in a debate – any time any place you name it and I’ll do it”, Trump said. He also was asked about his GOP rival Trump, whose Mar-A-Lago mansion is only a few miles from where Bush spoke and who had been in town in recent days.

Out on Twitter there arose such a clatter, late night twitter-drunk Donald is back at it!

“We know that from Obama’s example you can’t just throw rocks at Congress and expect them to move and do what you say they’re going to do”, Anderson said.

With the American population grappling with big issues such as immigration and national security, Mr. Trump is using fear as a method of scaring people into voting for him, Mr. Bush said. “I gotta get this off my chest”.

Jeb Bush has been told he must appear tough to help climb in the polls.

But then Donald Trump happened, and the billionaire blowhard who is anathema to the Republican establishment, soared to the top of the polls, while spending only a token amount of his personal fortune.

But no doubt Trump will continue to attack Jeb at every turn, especially through Twitter.

Bush said people are “legitimately angry with Washington, D.C.” and with Obama, whom he said has “divided the country up in all sorts of disparate parts”.
