Jeb Bush: Trump 'Grotesquely Manipulates' Anger of Americans

Former Florida governor and Republican Party leader Jeb Bush continued his crusade against Donald Trump all the way to the eve of the Republican convention, arguing that Trump is not the future of the party as the Donald rolls in a tide of public discontent to the nomination.

Bush was the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination back in 2015, and is one of the most well-known anti-Trump names in the GOP. He penned an op-ed for The Washington Post, published last Friday, where he admitted that Trump had seized on legitimate frustrations with American politics.

"They have given rise to the success of a candidate who continues to grotesquely manipulate the deeply felt anger of many Americans," Bush noted, and referred to politics of the mid19th century. "Trump's abrasive, Know Nothing-like nativist rhetoric has blocked out sober discourse about how to tackle America's big challenges."
This is just the latest broadside by Bush against Trump. During the punishing primary race, Bush was constantly hammering on Trump’s misogyny and questionable business practices.

Bush bowed out of the Republican race after the South Carolina primary, and he made it clear at that point that he would not be voting for Trump nor did he plan to attend the Republican convention.
