    Former Florida governor and Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized President Donald Trump for “saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand.” Bush made the criticism during an interview that aired Sunday with WFOR’s Jim DeFede. “He hasn’t shifted to being President in the way that people are used to, and I think that’s the problem,” Bush said, adding later: “He’s a distraction in and of himself.”

    Former Florida Gov. and onetime GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Sunday that President Donald Trump is making life a little more difficult for himself. In an interview with Jim DeFede for "Facing South Florida" that aired Sunday, Bush said Trump "should stop saying things that aren't true, that are distractions from the task at hand." "He's a distraction in and of himself," he said. "He's got a lot of work to do, and some of these things — the wiretapping and all of this stuff — is a complete distraction that makes it harder to accomplish the things I...

In a panel about the president's recent statements denouncing racism and anti-semitism, Navarro said: "It took so much for him to read those words yesterday. It is like squeezing blood out of a stone." "There's so much to be said from presidential leadership -- We're not going to get it from him on this issue. He...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said it's unlikely that he will ever seek public office again, including the presidency, and said he wants to return to private life and his business career. Bush made the remarks while teaching a two-week course on governors at Texas A&M University. He said he is focused on his work to reform education and on his businesses, which he rejoined after his failed presidential bid concluded in February after the South Carolina Primary. "I unraveled everything I was doing to prepare for this - you don't do that lightly," Bush said. "I just think this...

    In the event that you've been wondering what former Florida governor and GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush has planned for the future, you can rest easy now knowing that it — probably — won't involve running for office again. The Associated Press reports that Bush has joined The Foundation for Excellence in Education, an organization he founded to focus on pushing for “changes in education policy that often drawn opposition from teacher unions and Democrats.” Of his loss in the GOP race, Bush is quoted as saying: “I just think this was my chance. The conditions of this election weren't...

    A former British spy has vanished after being named as the author of a ‘dirty’ file smearing Donald Trump and fled his £1.5million mansion in fear telling his neighbour: ‘Look after my cat.’ Ex-MI6 agent Christopher Steele has been named as the author of the salacious Russian dossier containing outlandish claims about Donald Trump’s sex life and bizarre footage allegedly held by the Kremlin’s blackmail unit. The 35-page briefing, which is littered with spelling mistakes, includes an unsubstantiated and far-fetched claim Trump watched prostitutes perform a ‘golden shower (urination) show’ in the Presidential Suite of a Moscow hotel. Mr Trump...

    Editor's Note: Jeb Bush is the former governor of Florida and was a candidate for the GOP nomination for president in 2016. The opinions expressed in this commentary are his. (CNN)When Scott Pruitt and I assembled a Restoring Federalism Task Force last year, he headlined the plan: "Putting Washington In Its Place." Those five words sum up exactly what the American people were clamoring for in this election: a dramatic shift of power out of a broken Washington and back into the hands of the people.I cannot think of a person more suited to lead the Environmental Protection Agency than...

    In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush makes the case that the incoming Republican administration should set the agenda by calling for a constitutional convention to establish term limits, a balanced budget amendment and restrictions on the Commerce Clause. Bush asserts that the 2016 election was largely a protest vote over the growth and power of the central government and that Republicans have a rare chance to shift some of that power back to the states. Bush wrote: But here’s something we shouldn’t forget: This election was more about voting against something than voting...

    It has been an increasingly caustic environment behind the scenes between Team Trump and GOP elites that has seen Republican power brokers effectively wall in the Trump campaign. GOP funding has been all but cut off, and so too has the institutionalized state-to-state ground game so critical in winning battleground states on Election Day. Donald Trump, and his millions of supporters, are truly on their own. The primary impetus behind this effort is said to be three-fold, coming in the form of House Speaker Paul Ryan, Ohio Governor John Kasich, and long-ago ousted, onetime GOP presidential front-runner, Jeb Bush. The...
