Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush criticized opponent Donald Trump for his recent comments about 9/11, suggesting Trump lacks the seriousness to be president.

Bush, appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday with Jake Tapper, also defended his brother, former President George Bush, who Trump suggestively laid the blame to for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Tapper: What are you objecting to about Mr. Trump’s remarks about 9/11 and your brother?

Bush: Look, my brother responded to a crisis and did it as you would hope a president would do. He united the country, he organized the country, he kept us safe. There’s no denying that. The great majority of Americans believe that and I don’t know why he keeps bringing this up. It doesn’t show he’s a serious person as it relates to being commander in chief and being the architect of a foreign policy. Across the spectrum of foreign policy, Mr. Trump talks about things that as though he’s still on ‘The Apprentice.’ Literally talking about Syria saying ISIS should take out Assad then Russia should take out ISIS as though it was some kind of board game and not a serious approach. This is just another example of the lack of seriousness. And this is a serious time, we’re under a grave threats again and I think we need a president with a steady hand.
