Jeb Bush: 'I Don't Know Which Donald Trump to Believe'

Former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush Thursday praised Ted Cruz's choice of Carly Fiorina as a running mate and said that "I don't know which Donald Trump to believe."

"The one that read from a teleprompter, a speech that was inside the lines, or the one that wants to build a wall and make Mexico pay for it," the former Florida governor told CNN correspondent Jamie Gangel.

"Which Donald Trump is the one that is expressing these views?" Bush added. "There's two of them — and I think we need a president with a steady hand."

Bush, 63, who dropped out of the race in February, was referencing Trump's foreign policy speech on Wednesday in Washington, in which he called for an "America first" policy that would create a stronger nation both financially and militarily.

"We tell everything," Trump later added. "We are sending troops, we tell them. We're sending something else, we have a news conference. We have to be unpredictable. And we have to be unpredictable starting now."

"The idea that a president should be unpredictable is not really the way history has been written," Bush said. "The successful presidents have been clear about their vision, have laid out the agenda on foreign policy — and our friends know that we have their backs and our enemies fear us."

Bush reiterated his longstanding opposition to Trump, saying that "I don't think he's a serious person."

He hesitated on saying outright whether he would not vote for Trump, only that "I hope I won't have to be faced with that dilemma."

But Bush was more adamant about opposing Hillary Clinton — "no way" — and said that Republicans should not support the Democrat in order to stop Trump.

"I don't think we should support Hillary Clinton."

Regarding Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO, who suspended her campaign about two weeks before he did, Bush called her "talented, tough."

"She takes on Trump really well and she takes on Hillary Clinton very well," he told Gangel. "Someone who's got a proven record and who's been vetted as a candidate — I thought was a smart move by Ted Cruz."
