Gen. Michael Hayden, former CIA and NSA director, endorsed Jeb Bush Monday, telling "Newsmax Prime" anchor and former Congressman J.D. Hayworth that the former Florida governor represents "the right position."

The retired Air Force general says Bush is the best candidate to deal with the Islamic State (ISIS) and other national security threats.

"I've signed on as an adviser to Gov. Bush because he asked me and because he represents what I feel is the right position, which is the Republican internationalist position," Hayden said. "If you're looking for one sentence as to what a new president should do with regard to foreign policy: Get involved, and stay involved."

Hayworth asked Hayden about the former Florida governor's view on amnesty for illegal aliens, a position that has put him at odds with the more conservative members of the Republican Party.

A recent Rasmussen poll found that 63 percent of Americans want a military presence on the border with Mexico, Hayworth pointed out.

"We are blessed by being an immigrant nation," Hayden responded. "We need to manage it well. And that would be my guidance here."
