Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush predicts that Donald Trump’s supporters will “feel betrayed” when his promises go unfulfilled. In a conversation with MSNBC, Bush said that Trump, “to his credit was very smart at exploiting these kind of opportunities. He’s a master at understanding how the media works – more than anybody I’ve ever seen in politics. Kudos to him, for kind of creating the environment and then manipulating the environment to his effect.”
But, the former primary foe of Trump added that the “tragedy” of his presumptive nomination is that “there isn’t going to be a wall built. And Mexico’s not going to pay for it. And there’s not going to be a ban on Muslims. ... This is all like a alternative universe that he created. The reality is, that’s not going to happen. And people are going to be deeply frustrated and the divides will grow in our country. And this extraordinary country, still the greatest country on the face of the earth, will continue to stagger instead of soar. And that’s the heartbreaking part of this, is I think people are really going to feel betrayed.”
