Jeb Bush: 'In these serious times, (Trump's) not a serious leader'



Appearing on Face the Nation, Jeb Bush continued to press his plans for taking out the Islamic State and drew a contrast with Donald Trump.

“In these really serious times, he’s not a serious leader,” Bush said of Trump.

”I have great doubts about Donald Trump's ability to be commander in chief. If you listen to him talk, it's kind of scary to be honest with you, because he's not a serious candidate."

Bush also said Trump was working the news media. "He knows what he's saying. He's smart. He's playing you guys like a fiddle, the press, by saying outrageous things and garnering attention."

In Sarasota on Saturday, Trump said Bush's campaign was "down in the tubes."
