LAS VEGAS — Donald Trump was under fire at tonight’s CNN presidential debate, a prime-time event dominated by national security and the fight against ISIS.
Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor whose campaign is floundering, appeared most eager to hit the GOP front-runner. The two men exchanged tense words on Trump’s plan to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the United States as well as his recent vow to go after family members of ISIS terrorists.
The latter, Bush said, was “another example of (Trump’s) lack of seriousness.”
“The idea that this is a solution to this is just crazy,” Bush said. “It makes no sense to suggest this.”
Trump, visibly annoyed, at one point could be seen mouthing, “give me a break.” He delivered his usual attack line on the ex-governor: that he is simply too nice.
