Jeb: National Review Shouldn't Be Punished for Truth About Trump

 (Fox News)

The Republican National Committee should not have disinvited National Review from its upcoming debate, as it is only telling the truth with its attacks on Donald Trump, rival GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Friday morning.

"National Review is a cherished, conservative mouthpiece," Bush told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" program. "It has been in existence for two generations, and it is consistently conservative. I think the fact that they would have all of these distinguished journalists and thought leaders of the conservative cause join together to say Donald Trump is not a conservative, they're just telling the truth."

He continued that there have been other people critical of "me and other candidates for specific things, and that's fine. That's fair game. They're not being kicked off the debate."

But with Trump, Bush said, "this transformation he claims he has done needs to be tested."

Trump has supported Hillary and Bill Clinton, including giving money to their foundation, said Bush, and "not that long ago he was anti-Second Amendment, he was pro-choice in terms of abortion. He called for the highest tax increase in American history. All of this was within the last decade."

Bush said that the United States needs a conservative, and Trump is not one.

"He would get beat by Hillary Clinton," said Bush. "I called him a jerk and probably could have use a different word."

But Trump, he continued, "disparages [the] disabled ... denigrates women, called John McCain a loser because he was caught as a POW, this is not the way you build towards the 50 percent [you need] to win the presidency."
