Jeb Bush Gets Testy at CNN Debate About Brother’s Record: ‘There’s One Thing I Know for Sure, He Kept Us Safe’
CNN’s debate host Hugh Hewitt hit a sore spot when he asked Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush a question about foreign policy.
Cornered, Bush defended his brother’s track record and suggested that he made the right choices.
“Of course, that’s the case,” Bush said. “But I’m my own man. I’m going to create a strategy that based on the simple fact that the United States need to lead the world.”
“I will have a team that will follow the doctrine that I set up,” he insisted. “And it will be peace through strength.”
Bush suggested that his
brother kept the United States safe.
“As it relates to my brother, there’s one thing I know for sure,” Bush quipped. “He kept us safe. I don’t know if you remember, Donald. Do you remember the rubble, you remember the firefighter with his arms around him? He sent a clear signal that the United States would be strong and fight Islamic terrorism.”
“And he did keep us safe,” the candidate concluded.
