Jeb Bush says he correctly predicted Trump would be a ‘chaos president’

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush shared his thoughts on the Trump administration during an appearance at the SALT hedge fund conference on Friday.

CNN quotes him as telling the audience, "When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president. Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now."

Bush made such comments in December of 2015, during a Republican debate where he said, "Donald, you know, is great at the one-liners. But he's 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."

At the recent event, the former Florida governor also advised Trump to stop tweeting which reportedly drew a positive reaction from the crowd.

While Bush acknowledged that the platform is a useful way to reach people directly, he added, in part, "When [Trump] tweets he also gives our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights. These things matter....There are lots of reasons that you don't want to send out signals to our adversaries."

He also argued that "His tweets countermand the efforts of a lot of people that are trying to keep up with him."

Axios reports, among his other comments, Bush is said to have advocated for more order in the White House, the firing of leakers and a clearer foreign policy approach.
