Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Republican presidential candidate and former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-FL) said his rival Donald Trump is “misinformed” at best and “scary” at times on foreign policy.
Bush said, “I think he’s uninformed. He knows what he is saying He is smart. He’s playing you guys like a fiddle, the press, by saying outrageous things. and garnering attention that’s his strategy to dominate the news. He simple fact is that he has been wrong on Syria and on the refugees, pretty consistently. And no one is holding him to account. He frst said we had no interest in being involved in Syria, then let the Russians take out ISIS, let ISIS take out Assad. Back and forth it goes. The net effect, these really serious times he’s not a serious leader.”
He continued, “Anybody is better than Hillary Clinton, let me be clear about that. I have great doubts about Donald Trump’s ability to be commander in chief. I really do. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt to see how the campaign unfolded. But you listen to him talk, it’s kind of scary to be honest with you because he’s not a serious candidate. He doesn’t talk about the issues at hand that are of national security importance for our country to keep us safe is the first priority of the president. He’s all over the map. Misinformed at best and preying on people’s fear at worst.”
