Jeb Bush Lays Out Plan to Reclaim Republican Party From Donald Trump


Jeb Bush on Friday laid out a plan to reclaim the Republican Party from Donald Trump’s “nativist rhetoric.”

Bush said in a Washington Post op-ed that Trump does not represent the future of the GOP or what it stands for.

“While he has no doubt tapped into the anxiety so prevalent in the United States today, I do not believe Donald Trump reflects the principles or inclusive legacy of the Republican Party. And I sincerely hope he doesn’t represent its future,” Bush wrote.

“Trump’s abrasive, Know Nothing-like nativist rhetoric has blocked out sober discourse about how to tackle America’s big challenges,” he added.

Rebuilding the trust in American government, the Florida governor said, “requires that we be the catalysts that lead to change.”

He called for GOP focus on keeping control of Congress and state governments.
