Trump and Bush Spar Over Muslim Immigration Policies at GOP Debate

On Tuesday at the main stage of the GOP presidential debate in Las Vegas, NV, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush pushed back on Donald Trump by calling him a "chaos candidate."

He was referencing Trump's call for a ban on Muslim immigration by saying "This is not a serious proposal, it will push the Arab world away from us at a time where we need to engage with them. Donald is great at the one-liners but he is a chaos candidate and he'd be a chaos president. He would not be the commander in chief we need to keep our country safe."

Trump then responded by saying "Jeb doesn't really believe I'm 'unhinged,' he said that very simply because he has failed in this campaign. It has been a total disaster, nobody cares and frankly I'm the most solid person up here."

Bush further clarified his point by stating "It is not a serious proposal to say to the people you are asking for support that they can't even come to the country to engage in a dialogue with us. That's not a serious proposal. We need a serious leader to deal with this and I believe I am that guy."

Trump also tried to drill down his previous statements by saying "We are not talking about isolation, we’re talking security. We’re not talking about religion, we’re talking about security."

Bush echoed the words of his brother, former President George W. Bush, by saying "They are relevant if they want to destroy ISIS, if we want to destroy radical Islamic terrorism, we can't disassociate ourselves from peace-loving Muslims. If we expect to do this on our own, we will fail, but if we do it in unison with people who are also threatened by Islamic radical terrorism, we will be far more successful."

Despite the recent terror attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, many GOP candidates shared that Donald Trump's call to ban Muslims would be counterproductive.
