Watch: The Look On Trump’s Face When Jeb Bush Attacked Him At GOP Debate Says It All

After reports indicate CNN wanted to spark a brawl among the 2016 GOP presidential candidates, one of the first questions of the night pitted Jeb Bush against Donald Trump. Asked to respond to his previous assertion that Trump is “unhinged,” as evidenced by a controversial proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the U.S., Bush responded that the next president must focus first and foremost on eradicating Islamic terrorism.

“We need to destroy ISIS and the caliphate,” he declared. “That should be our objective.”

As for Trump’s plan, Bush declared it unrealistic.

“If we’re going to ban all Muslims,” he continued, “how are we going to get them to be part of a coalition to destroy ISIS? The Kurds are the greatest fighting force and our strongest allies. They’re Muslim.” He concluded that Trump’s plan is “not a serious proposal” and drive the wedge between the U.S. and the Muslim world even deeper. Trump is “great at the one-liners” Bush acknowledged, “but he’s a chaos candidate — and he’d be a chaos president.” The line obviously resonated with much of the audience, which rewarded him with applause. Trump responded, however, by suggesting Bush is only mad because he is down in the polls.

“Jeb doesn’t really believe I’m unhinged,” Trump alleged, going on to ridicule the struggling candidate.

“He has failed in his campaign,” he said. “It’s been a total disaster. Nobody cares; and frankly, I’m the most solid person up here. I’ve built a tremendous company.”

Using his allotted time to respond to Trump’s accusations, Bush once again focused on policy.

“Banning all Muslims will make it harder for us to do what we need to do exactly what we need to do,” he said, “which is destroy ISIS.”

He then stated that he wants to “get the lawyers off the back of our war fighters,” explaining that the policies enforced under the Obama administration have made it “impossible to be successful” against ISIS.

Bush concluded that the U.S. will have to “engage with the Arab world to make this happen.”
