Jeb Bush Just Implied to a Yale Audience That Trump's Kids Don't Love Their Dad

Former Governor Jeb Bush (R-FL) slammed President Donald Trump during a lecture sponsored by the the William F. Buckley, Jr. program at Yale University, the Yale Daily News reported Wednesday.


Bush said that, unlike Trump, he goes home every day to children “who actually love me.”

The former governor is the son of President George H.W. Bush and the brother of President George W. Bush, who both attended the university.

“The 21st-century conservative agenda cannot be nostalgic about the past,” Bush said.

Trump bested Jeb Bush during the 2016 GOP presidential primaries.

“I’m not going to talk about the 2016 election,” Bush joked. “I’m still in therapy.”
