(ABC NEWS) Front-runner Donald Trump says that fellow GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush keeps attacking him because the former Florida governor is “embarrassed” that he has failed to gain traction on the campaign trail and in the polls.
“Well, look, Jeb has had a very hard time,” Trump said via telephone on “Good Morning America” today. “He’s way down in the polls. He’s doing very poorly. He’s embarrassed by what’s happening. So he has to attack me to try to get his numbers up.
“The last thing we need is another Bush. We’ve seen what happens. The last thing we need is another Bush and he understands that and the voters understand that. You know, to compare me to Michael Moore; that one hasn’t happened before.”
