Skip to comments.Jeb Bush blasts 'abhorrent' Trump shifts on immigration (CNN Useful Idiot Alert)
Posted on 08/26/2016 7:07:24 PM PDT by usafa92
Jeb Bush hammered Donald Trump Thursday after the Republican presidential nominee appeared open to major shifts on his immigration platform -- several of which echoed the former Florida governor's during the GOP primary fight. "All the things that Donald Trump railed against, he seems to be morphing into," Bush said in a radio interview with Rita Cosby of WABC. "It's kind of disturbing."
When the two men were competing in the Republican presidential primary, Trump advocated for deporting millions of undocumented immigrants and blasted politicians like Bush who wanted to allow some to stay and seek legal status as long as they met a wide range of criteria. Now Trump is apparently signaling a major shift in his policy, saying that he's open to working with undocumented immigrants rather than deporting them all. They won't be allowed to pursue citizenship, he said in a Fox News town hall Wednesday night, and they'll have to pay taxes.
Some have noted that Trump's comments are starting to sound more in line with policies that Bush proposed -- stances that Trump used to bash him during the primaries. "I don't know what to believe about a guy who doesn't believe in things," Bush said. "His views will change based on the feedback he gets from a crowd or what he thinks he has to do. Life is too complex."
During the primary, Bush repeatedly argued that Trump's deportation idea and proposal to build a wall along the border were "unrealistic" and wouldn't come to pass. Although Trump is suggesting a shift in his deportation policy, he maintains he will still put up a wall and make Mexico pay for it. When pressed on whether he was changing his policy, Trump argues that he's still going to enforce border laws.

Aw shut up, Jeb!!!
SHUT UP, YEB!
So Jeb! appears on CNN.
What good does it do him? His (supposed) party? His future?
How does Jeb! gain ANYTHING by stabbing Trump in the back at this point?
Who cares what Yeb bush thinks or says about anything?
Nobody cares what Jeb says except the media because they know you reliably criticize Trump. Your “media friends” would have massacred you had you somehow won the nomination, but you are too dense to catch on to the game.
If the media can’t find a false equivalency they won’t find one at all.
~Yeb is a moron.
Trump hasn’t changed his position.
But, Hillary is still a bigot.
Part of the bush social disease ...
What’s funny and sad if Jeb would have gotten the nomination he’d still be destroyed by Clinton and her media flying monkeys.
He is very disappointed he did not get to be the Designated Loser like was originally planned.
If the polls for Hillary get bad enough, both Yeb! and W. will endorse the wicked witch of Chappaqua.
The Cheap Labor Express is determined the citizens will not reverse 30 years of bipartisan policy of non-enforcement of immigration laws.
Jebbie, you are finally home with mama, you will never be president, you have most of your marbles, so go play and STFU!
Breaking News. Jeb joins #NeverTrump
Jeb would be in a fetal position under desk at this point in the campaign.
Hillary would be leading him by 30 points.
I see no evidence of that!
Get over it!
Hebbie needs to think about how many people put aside their dislike for him and voted for him as governor for the good of the party but were holding their noses all the way.
Who is this Jeb! person, and why is he begging me to clap? Creepy.
