Donald Trump responded to Jeb Bush calling him a “jerk” by calling Bush “an embarrassment to himself and to his family.”

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd on Sunday, Trump suggested, “Look his people gave him that quote. You could see he was just saying, ‘Okay, I’m ready now, I’m ready now to say it.'” (RELATED: Jeb Bush Calls Donald Trump ‘A Jerk’ [VIDEO])

“Jeb is a weak and ineffective person,” Trump explained. “He’s also a low energy person, which I’ve said before. But he’s a weak and ineffective person.”

“Jeb, if he were president, it would just be more of the same,” Trump claimed. “It would be, he’s got money from all of the lobbyists and all of the special interests that run him like a puppet.”

“He’s got two percent in the polls, I have 41 percent in the latest poll, he has two percent. He’s going to be off the stage soon. He’s an embarrassment to the Bush family,” Trump argued. “And in fact, he doesn’t even want to use the Bush name which is interesting. Jeb is an embarrassment to himself and to his family.”

“And the Republican Party has essentially, they’re not even listening to Jeb. Jeb is saying that– by the way Chuck, Jeb is only saying that to dry to get a little mojo going but in the mean time,” Trump explained. “I went up 11 points in the new Fox poll, I went up 11 points after the debate and he went down two.”
