Jeb Bush: 'If You're Looking For A Divider-In-Chief, I'm Not Your Guy'

Jeb Bush: 'If You're Looking For A Divider-In-Chief, I'm Not Your Guy'
  • Benzinga recently received a sneak peek of Sunday’s Wall Street Week.
  • The upcoming episode will feature Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush.
  • Topics discussed with the former Governor of Florida will include the state of his campaign, Donald Trump, where the country can stand to improve and national security.

In a wide-ranging conversation, Jeb Bush was questioned about his campaign. Co-hosts Anthony Scaramucci and Gary Kaminsky asked him why he believed his message was not resonating with the American people and whether his approach is too low key or “not bombastic enough.”


To this, Bush responded, “If you're looking for a Divider-in-Chief, I’m not your guy; that’s a simple fact.”

“If you want someone that will disparage every American, I'm not your guy. If you want someone that will destroy the alliances to keep the country sage, I’m not your guy,” he continued.

'If You Want Someone Who Can Fix... I Am Your Guy'

However, he stated adamantly, “If you want someone who can fix the [...] things that exist in this country, I am your guy.”

He added that he does not believe that is “low energy,” and concluded by saying, “I just don't go out of my way to tear people down to make myself look better.”
