Jeb Bush: Trump supporters will feel 'betrayed'



Jeb Bush says Donald Trump supporters will feel "betrayed."

In an interview airing tonight on MSNBC:

"Trump, you know, to his credit was very smart at exploiting these kind of opportunities. He’s a master at understanding how the media works – more than anybody I’ve seen in politics. Kudos to him for, you know, kind of creating the environment and then manipulating the environment to his effect. The tragedy of this though, is that there isn’t going to be a wall built. And Mexico’s not going to pay for it. And there’s not going to be a ban on Muslims. None of that is – this is all like a, alternative universe that he created. The reality is, that’s not going to happen. And people are going to be deeply frustrated and the divides will grow in our country. This extraordinary country, still the greatest country on the earth, will continue to stagger instead of soar. And that’s the heartbreaking part of this -- is I think people are really going to feel betrayed."
