Donald Trump, along with many of his fellow Republican candidates, said some pretty harsh things about Jeb Bush.
In fact, in his big campaign announcement speech on Tuesday Donald Trump was a bit harsher than the rest, saying, “I don’t see how he can get the nomination. He’s weak on immigration and he supports Common Core. How the hell can you vote for this guy?”
While bluntness and swagger are just part of Donald Trump’s style, he admitted to CNN‘s Jake Tapper that he regrets being so harsh.
In an interview set to air Sunday during CNN’s State of the Union, Donald Trump said, “I think he’s a nice person. I actually felt bad because I hit him very hard one day like two days ago, three days ago, and I said, why am I hitting him so hard?”
Donald Trump added, “I actually saw myself a couple of days ago and I said ‘…that’s, that’s too rough. Because I really think he’s a nice man, I think he’s a wonderful man.’ I don’t know if I want him negotiating with ISIS.”
Of course in true Donald Trump style, he added, “I think Trump will do a lot better. You think so too, but you’re not going to say it.”
During Donald Trump’s announcement, he didn’t just bash his counterparts, he also made some pretty hefty promises.
For example, Donald Trump said, “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created. I tell you that. I’ll bring back our jobs from China, from Mexico, from Japan, from so many places. I’ll bring back our jobs, and I’ll bring back our money.”
He also promised, “…I would do various things very quickly. I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare.” and, “I would build a great wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively, I will build a great, great wall on our southern border. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall.”
