Jeb Bush on Trump: ‘I told you so’

Speaking at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas, Nevada, former GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush took an opportunity to have an ‘I told ya so’ moment in reference to the current dumpster fire presidency of Donald Trump.

“When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president,” Bush told the Vegas audience, according to CNN. “Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now.”

Bush first warned of the “chaos” that would accompany Trump should he win the White House back in 2015.

He added that the Trump administration is “living in the tyranny of the moment” instead of “executing on a clear agenda.”

Bush then offered some unsolicited advice to the President: “Stop tweeting.”

The former Florida governor said that Twitter in the hands of Trump theoretically could have some benefits, such as circumventing the media, but warned that Trump’s infamous Twitter rants  give our enemies “all sorts of nuances and insights” into the mind of the commander in chief.

The leaks coming out of the White House concerned Bush as well.

“I’ve never seen a White House as leaky as this one,” Bush said. “People should be fired if they’re disloyal to the president of the United States and leaking.”
