Donald Trump said Wednesday that Jeb Bush had "really no choice" but to issue an Internet video that attacks him on his conservative stance, as he's "doing very poorly in the polls."

"He's a very low energy kind of guy and he had to do something so they're spending a lot of money on ads," Trump told ABC News' "Good Morning America" host George Stephanopoulos Wednesday morning. "He has a lot of money from the hedge fund guys from the special interests from lobbyists, he raised over $100 million, so they control him totally so he really had no choice."

But Trump doesn't think Bush's gamble with the ad will succeed, as "so far, everybody that's attacked me has gone down."

The ad shows Trump praising Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton in the past, but on Wednesday the real estate mogul told Stephanopoulos that when it comes to supporting a presidential candidate, he'll support Bush as a fellow Republican.

"I was obviously very friendly," Trump said of his relationship with Clinton. "I was a major business person. You've seen that and I really was very friendly with all politicians. If I'm in New York I was friendly with politicians throughout the United States."

But his friendliness with Democrats came at a time "when the Republicans were not doing well," and "had some ideas that were different from my ideas."

Trump also spoke of the advances neurosurgeon Ben Carson has been making.

"I like Ben a lot," said Trump . "He's a good guy but he's been spending a tremendous amount of advertising money in Iowa."
