Trump Says He Doesn’t Want Bush Endorsement

Donald Trump announced Wednesday that if he wins the Republican presidential nomination, he won’t care whether Jeb Bush supports him, The Hill reported.

The real-estate mogul was reacting to a Politico report about Bush having hinted that he might not honor his pledge to back the party’s nominee if it is Trump. The former Florida governor has repeatedly criticized the front-runner for his controversial proposals.

Trump wrote in a statement for The Washington Post: “I really don’t want Jeb’s endorsement because he is a low-energy person and he does not represent strength, power and stamina, which are qualities our country desperately needs. If he does not endorse and support me as the nominee, legally he cannot be on the ballot in many states so that would be the end of his candidacy — but that doesn’t matter because he is not going to win anyway.”

During Tuesday night’s GOP presidential debate, Bush challenged Trump several times. The following day, the billionaire declared: “While everyone said I beat him last night, I was only responding to his desperate attempt to stay relevant by attacking me.” Bush is languishing in national polls, with single-digit support. Most recent surveys show him in fifth place.

Trump promised in the debate that he will not run leave the party and run as an independent candidate, “no matter what.”
