Donald Trump Calls on Jeb Bush To End His Campaign

1 minute read

After Jeb Bush put on a weak performance in the third Republican debate, Donald Trump called on the erstwhile establishment favorite to end his campaign.

“Look, Jeb is a nice guy. He’s a stiff, okay? He’s a nice guy. He doesn’t have a chance, alright. He ought to do what Walker did,” Trump told ABC Tuesday. “Jeb is not a man that’s going to make it. He’s wasting his time, he’s wasting a lot of money.”

Bush is in the midst of a reset of his campaign, unrolling a new slogan “Jeb Can Fix It” and attempting to come bounce back from his slide in the polls, and hitting Trump in the process. “You can’t just tell Congress… ‘You’re Fired’… and go to a commercial break,” Bush said at a campaign stop in Florida Monday.

Trump, meanwhile, has dropped to second behind Ben Carson in some national polls after more than 100 days at the top of the Republican pack.
