Jeb Bush Defends His Campaign and His Brother from Donald Trump

On Tuesday, Jeb Bush spoke on "CBS This Morning" about his rival Donald Trump.

He argued, “The campaign is the campaign, [but] this one is a little different because of the new technologies and Donald Trump filling the space with vitriol, hatred and division. I think he’s a master at manipulation. I find it amusing that he attacks me, I’m his primary target, and I’m doing so poor in the polls according to everybody, right? Why is that? Why is he going after me each and every day? It’s because he fears me. I’m the only candidate standing up to him.”

Bush then spoke of Trump's criticisms of his brother saying, “What Trump’s talking about is conspiracy theories. He is basically mirroring the words of Michael Moore. In a Republican primary, it’s kind of weird. It’s kind of weird in general. Everybody got the same intelligence and everybody concluded that [Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein] had weapons of mass destruction.”

Jeb Bush added, “My brother is my brother. I love him dearly. [But] relegating this campaign to my brother’s presidency is not what this campaign should be about. This campaign should be about the future and that’s what I talk about. I’m in this for the long haul. I’m excited by our progress."
