    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush declined to say on Tuesday whether GOP front-runner Donald Trump is qualified to be commander in chief, but he urged his rival to speak more substantively about national security. -snip- The candidate also said that he is opposed to ending birthright citizenship -- something that Trump has proposed as a way to deter illegal immigration and that another GOP presidential candidate, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, said he supports. "Look, this is a constitutionally protected right. I don’t support revoking it," he said. "That’s not one of my – I mean, look, there’s a way to...
  • Jeb Bush to Lester Holt: Donald Trump's Surge in the Polls Is a 'Phenomenon'

    Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush called Donald Trump's candidacy a "phenomenon," and said his outspoken rival has "appealed to people's anger" as he has skyrocketed to the top of the polls. "I was surprised that Donald Trump has surged. I think he's captured the deep frustration that people feel," Bush told NBC News' Lester Holt in an exclusive interview on Friday. Trump — who kicked off his campaign with controversial comments accusing Mexico of sending its rapists and murderers to the U.S. — has a large lead over the GOP presidential field, a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday showed. "I get...

    A new poll finds Donald Trump leading Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio — in their home state of Florida. The surprise result comes less than a week after another poll found Bush, the state’s former governor, with a comfortable 12-point lead over Rubio, a GOP senator from the Sunshine state. Trump was 17 points behind Bush in the Maxon-Dixon poll released on Friday. The new poll, by Florida-based St. Pete Polls, was released on Wednesday and found Trump leading the entire field at 26 percent—6 points ahead of Bush. Conventional wisdom has been that Florida will be dominated by...

    There was a time not that long ago when this could be a very effective strategy. Nobody in the English speaking community was paying much attention to what went on at the Spanish speaking stations and the two media worlds remained largely separate. If a candidate had the ability to do so, they could sit down for an interview like this and pretty much nobody outside of the target audience would really know about it. But this is the 21st century and everyone is watching everything. Those sorts of walls don’t hold up any more for politicians and I think...

    In an interview conducted solely in Spanish, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tells MSNBC he’s “hurt” by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump’s strident criticisms of Mexican criminal aliens coming across the border. “I was hurt hearing somebody speaking in such a vulgar fashion. This makes solving this problem much more difficult. When we have politicians like that we cannot progress,” said Bush according to a translator. “In a political sense it was bad, and it creates an environment that is worse.”

    Presidential hopeful, and former Florida governor, Jeb Bush will be campaigning in his adopted home state this week. Bush will be in central Florida on Monday. Bush will host central Florida pastors for a meet and greet in Orlando and then tour a local small business and host a town hall in Longwood. Later in the day Bush will host a meet and greet in Maitland. As Bush tours central Florida and the 2016 presidential race heats up, the former Florida governor is repeating a stand on his party's pursuit of new voters. Bush says Republicans won't win the White...

    Real estate mogul and 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump is ahead of his fellow Republican contenders in another national survey on the field. Mr. Trump was the first choice of 19 percent of GOP primary voters, followed closely by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker at 17 percent in the poll released Monday by the Democratic-leaning firm Public Policy Polling. Next was former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 12 percent, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida at 10 percent apiece and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee at 8 percent. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly...

    MOTHER OF SON MURDERED BY ILLEGAL ALIEN SLAMS SANCTUARY CITIES, POLITICIANS: ‘YOUR SILENCE SPEAKS VOLUMES’ At a Tuesday Senate hearing dedicated to the families who lost loved ones thanks to illegal aliens, Laura Wilkerson gave testimony on her youngest son Joshua’s horrific death while some in the silent audience wept. Wilkerson called on Congress to place American lives and interests over foreigners, especially those illegally living in the country. During the hearing, titled “Oversight of the Administration’s Misdirected Immigration Enforcement Policies: Examining the Impact on Public Safety and Honoring the Victims,” Wilkerson broke from her written testimony to deliver a...

    The media, Democrats, and weak-kneed Republicans who defend and dismiss our porous Southern border, have plenty of blood on their hands — and not just the everyday Americans victimized by people who simply shouldn’t be here. Due to our unwillingness to secure the border and protect our own citizens, this country lost two major American artists in the last decade, Bob Clark and Adrienne Shelly. Bob Clark was just 67 when Hector Velazquez-Nava’s SUV crossed the center line on the morning of April 4, 2007, in Los Angeles California. Velazquez-Nava was not insured, did not have a driver’s license, but...

    What’s the deal with Donald Trump? He can’t possibly think he has a chance against a dozen highly qualified candidates, all but one of whom have held elective office, from governor to senator, for years. He must know that after a tiny pop in the polls over the silly summer season (remember Howard Dean?), he’ll tumble back down to earth and disappear. True, Mr. Trump couldn’t care less how embarrassing he is — to the Republican Party, sure, but also to himself. He’s an egotistical narcissist just blowing some of his $7 billion while in between tapings of his god-awful...

    <p>SOMEWHERE ABOVE THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST — It was Saturday night aboard Donald Trump’s gleaming Boeing 757. An hour earlier, he had finished the most high-profile speech of his nearly month-old presidential campaign: a rally attended by thousands in Phoenix where he railed against illegal immigration and countless other targets — Macy's, NBC, NASCAR, U.S. ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy — for 70 minutes. The billionaire real-estate mogul took off his jacket, clicked the oversized satellite television in his plush, cream-colored cabin over to Fox News and closely watched the channel’s coverage.</p>

    Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman — one of the world's most notorious crime figures — escaped a maximum security prison on Saturday via a 1,600 yard tunnel dug under his shower cell, Mexico's top security official said. The brazen jailbreak is the second time Guzman, the powerful head of Mexico's Sinaloa drug cartel, has escaped a maximum security prison. Guzman was last seen using the shower area at the Altiplano prison around 9 p.m. Saturday, the National Security Commission said in a statement. An alert was triggered when prison guards found his cell empty. The tunnel was so...

    House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer says that the over 200 sanctuary cities like Baltimore and San Francisco should be informing federal authorities when local law enforcement arrest felons like the illegal immigrant who allegedly shot and killed 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco last week. When asked by The Daily Caller if federal funds should be withheld to such cities who refuse to comply with federal law and do not report felons to federal authorities that are arrested by local police departments, Hoyer replied, “Without getting into specifics as to the action we ought to take, my feeling is that...

    Five-time deportee, seven time convicted felon Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez said in a new interview Sunday with a local ABC News affiliate that he came to San Francisco because he knew the sanctuary city would not hand him over to immigration officials. Lopez-Sanchez has confessed to shooting Kathryn Steinle last Wednesday at Pier 14. Had San Francisco police not refused a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer request, Lopez-Sanchez may not have been in the United States and Steinle might still be alive. “Did you shoot Kate Steinle, the lady who was down at Pier 14?” an ABC7 News reporter...

    In an interview you'll see only on ABC7 News, the man accused of shooting and killing a young woman at San Francisco's Pier 14 admitted to the crime and talked about where he got the gun. Francisco Sanchez didn't recall every detail because he says he doesn't remember everything that happened. But in the 45 minute jailhouse interview, he revealed how the shooting went down and why he kept returning to the United States after being deported numerous times. Barnard: "Did you shoot Kate Steinle, the lady who was down at Pier 14." Sanchez: "Yes." Barnard: "You did shoot her?"...

    In my July-issue Editor's Note column released earlier today, I expressed some skepticism about National Review writer Charles C.W. Cooke's conservatarian project, partly on grounds that libertarians should be wary of a political party that keeps on coughing up government-growing Republicans with the last name "Bush." So it's only fair to point out that, according to the shrewd political Washington Examiner political columnist Byron York, Jeb Bush is floundering to the point of shaking up his campaign staff. The remedying began Monday with word that Bush has shaken up his campaign before the campaign has even been formally announced. The...

    KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — A banner in the town square says, “Happy 90th Barbara Bush.” Postcards read “Kennebunkport: 2 presidents, 1 town.” A local gift shop is already selling unofficial “Jeb Bush 2016” magnets. In this coastal hamlet made famous by George H.W. Bush and his cigarette boat, it is hard to escape the Bush family — but Jeb Bush is trying very hard to do so. After festivities this weekend to celebrate his mother’s 90th birthday, Bush will jet overseas for a foreign-policy tour and then launch his 2016 presidential campaign 1,500 miles to the south in Miami. The iconic...

    Former Florida governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that although his pro-immigration views are not in line with his party’s base, he’s “not going to back down” on the country’s “immigration problem.” Speaking Sunday on CBS’ “Face the Nation,” Bush said he’s “not going to back down” on immigration, insisting the country has an immigration problem and needs a path for illegal aliens “I think we have immigration problem,” said Bush. “It’s a system that’s broken. The legal system is broken. We need to narrow family petitioning expand economic immigrants. We need to enforce the law....
