Former presidential candidate Jeb Bush criticized his vanquisher Donald Trump on Monday, claiming that under Trump, America will “continue to stagger instead of soar.”
In an interview with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace, Bush said, “Trump, you know, to his credit was very smart at exploiting these kind of opportunities. He’s a master at understanding how the media works more than anybody I’ve ever seen in politics. Kudos for him for kind of creating the environment and then manipulating the environment to his affect.”
“The tragedy of this, though, is that there isn’t going to be a wall built and Mexico’s not going to pay for it. And there’s not a ban on Muslims. None of that is — this is all like a alternative universe that he created. The reality is that’s not going to happen,” Bush said.
“And people are going to be deeply frustrated, and the divides will grow in our country,” Bush said. “And this extraordinary country, still the greatest country on the face of the earth, will continue to stagger instead of soar. And that’s the heart-breaking part of this is I think people are really going to feel betrayed.”
