Business mogul Donald Trump said Jeb Bush is “wasting his time” and “wasting a lot of money” by running for president, and that he should “absolutely” drop out.
Trump, appearing on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Tuesday with George Stephanopoulos, argued that Bush is “a stiff. He’s a nice guy. He doesn’t have a chance, all right. He ought to do what Walker did.”
Responding to Bush’s latest campaign reset where the former Florida governor went after Trump suggesting, “The solution won’t be found in someone who has never demonstrated the capacity to implement conservative ideas. And you can’t just tell Congress, ‘you’re fired’ and go to commercial break.” Trump said that Bush should “absolutely” drop out of the race because, “He’s got money but the money is not going to do it.”
Trump then joked that Bush has been “branded as a low-energy person. I don’t know who branded him that way… I don’t know, I can’t imagine.”
“Jeb is not a man that’s going to make it, OK,” explained Trump. “He’s wasting his time. He’s wasting a lot of money.”
Regarding Marco Rubio, Trump insisted that he “is highly overrated.”
However, Trump explained, “I think there’s some people that actually do have talent in the group and the reason I talk this way is because I am a non-politician.”
“When this is over, if I win, great. I’m going to make the country great again,” said Trump. “If I lose, fine. That’s fine. I’m not going to deal with these people. That’s going to be it. I go into the sunset, and I go to Turnberry, I go to Doral, and I build buildings.”
