Jeb Bush just blasted Donald Trump and announced that he won’t be voting for either of the candidates running for office. Do you think that we should listen to anything that he says?
Former GOP presidential hopeful Jeb Bush shared some rather dismal predictions for a Donald Trump presidency, but didn’t discount that it could happen.
Bush sat down for his first conversation since Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee chatting with his brother’s former White House communications director Nicolle Wallace on MSNBC.
The former Florida governor, who dropped his bid for the White House in February, on the night of the South Carolina primary, said voters will ‘feel betrayed’ by Trump because some of his campaign promises – from building a Mexican border wall to banning non-American Muslims from the country – would never materialize.
He also told Wallace, who started her career as his press secretary, that he would feel ‘sad’ if Hillary Clinton won the White House, but ‘worried’ if Trump was triumphant.
‘That’s why I can’t vote for either candidate,’ Bush revealed.
‘I can’t vote for Donald Trump and I can’t vote for Hillary Clinton. It breaks my heart,’ he said. ‘This is my first time in my adult life I’m confronted with this dilemma.’
Looking back at what happened throughout the race, Bush threw a couple of backhanded compliments at Trump’s way.
‘Trump, you know, to his credit was very smart at exploiting these kinds of opportunities,’ Bush told Wallace as they sat down near his family’s compound in Kennebunkport, Maine.
‘He’s a master at understanding how the media works – more than anybody I’ve seen in politics,’ the former governor continued.
‘Kudos to him for, you know, kind of creating the environment and then manipulating the environment to his effect,’ Bush added.
