JACKSONVILLE, Fla. | Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush shouldn’t be running the country if he can’t even run his own campaign, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Saturday.
Trump was in Jacksonville on Saturday, the day after the Bush campaign announced it is cutting payroll 40 percent. He said Bush, the son and brother of former presidents, is embarrassing his family.
Trump said he’s only spent a couple of million dollars on his campaign and is leading in the polls. He said spending less and getting more is what the country should be doing.
Thousands of raucous supporters cheered Trump in Bush’s home state during a riverfront rally. Trump also made fun of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, saying he’s out of money and “sweats like a dog.”
This story has been corrected to show that payroll, not salaries, is being cut 40 percent.
