Most people hate to admit it, but Jeb made sense when he explained why he felt that the 2016 Presidential Election could be Hillary’s time to win. In December, Bush claimed that Donald negotiated a deal with Hillary that made sure that she would become the President of the United States. He argued that Donald and Hillary are “long-time friends” and that he “liked the Clintons.” Now, Trump spends much of his day trying to find a way to get an edge on Clinton in the polls, only to come up short.
A majority of the GOP candidates believed that Trump’s nomination would do nothing more than guarantee that Hillary would win the election. In fact, Jeb Bush went a step further; he proposed that was exactly his purpose–he ran for president to ensure that Hillary wins the election. In March, Donald talked about running as an independent nominee, if he didn’t win the primary election. Bush believes the reason he was determined to stay in the race was to ensure Hillary became our next president in November.
“Trump revived talk Tuesday of an independent run when he highlighted on Twitter a USA Today/Suffolk University poll that shows 68% of his supporters would back him, rather than the GOP nominee. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush responded by saying Trump would only be helping Clinton by splitting the conservative vote.”
Bush explained that Trump was not a good candidate for president because he lacked the political experience needed to run a successful term in the White House. Another point Jeb mentioned was Donald’s lack of control on social media spoke volumes about his temper. He claims that Donald Trump’s bullying behavior on Twitter was troublesome for a presidential candidate.
Jeb stated that Trump previously was one of Clinton’s largest supporters, not only by verbally expressing that he hoped she won the election, but financially contributing to her campaign. Bush explained that it seems “too good to be true” that Trump suddenly doesn’t support Hillary and has a plan “to make America great again.” He believes it is much more likely that he is part of the Hillary campaign and is doing “his part” to ensure his friend elected in November.
“Trump had previously supported Clinton’s presidential candidacy and supported her during her time as a New York senator. Trump interviewed with Fox and Friends on July 15, 2015, where he admitted to previous contributions to Clinton’s campaign, ‘I’m a businessman, I contribute to everybody … That’s part of the problem with the system,’ Trump said nearly six months ago. He defended his contribution and downplayed it after suspicions from the GOP of a liberal mole.”
For many Trump supporters, they have voiced some of the same fears that Jeb explained, Bipartisan Report noted. Donald has wavered in his position in typical hot topics for the GOP from abortion to gun control to health care. Trump made waves even in the GOP when he touted that all Muslims should be deported or face criticism since “some Muslims are terrorist.”
Many of the dedicated Republicans still have serious reservations about Donald Trump and his ability to run the country. Many believe that he may be shocked that he made it this far in his campaign, and feels trapped by his GOP nomination now. Jeb Bush was correct about one assumption he made, Donald Trump’s support of the Clintons’ is odd and could point to a conspiracy to ensure that Hillary snagged the majority of the votes in the election in November.
