Jeb Bush praises Fiorina, bashes Trump as two-faced



Jeb Bush praised Ted Cruz's selection of Carly Fiorina and criticized Donald Trump in an interview Thursday with CNN.

"I'm impressed with her," Bush said. "Picking a candidate that is talented, tough -- she takes on Trump really well, I think, and she takes on Hillary Clinton very well, as well. (She's) someone who's got a proven record, who's been vetted by a candidate, I thought it was a smart move."

He then talked of Trump, who on Wednesday gave a scripted speech on foreign policy.

"I don't know which Donald Trump to believe, the one that read from a teleprompter, a speech that was inside the lines, or the one that wants to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it," he said, naming other controversial positions.

"Which Donald Trump is the one that's expressing these views? There's two of them, and I think we need a president with a steady hand. The idea that a president should be unpredictable is not really the way history has been written."
