Donald Trump would 'get crushed' by Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush says

US Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton would “crush” GOP candidate Donald Trump, Jeb Bush says, the Republican who is trying to shake up his struggling presidential campaign.

"Donald Trump, I don’t believe, is going to be the party’s nominee,” Bush said in an interview with Fox News on Sunday. “And if he is, he’s going to get crushed by Hillary Clinton. I wanted to point that out.”

Trump leads the Republican field with 35 percent of support, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls, despite making controversial remarks against Mexican immigrants, women and Muslims.

Many observers say Trump’s appeal among many voters is largely because he comes from outside the political establishment and claims he is not influenced by lobby groups and wealthy individuals.

Bush, who was once considered the leading candidate for Republican nomination, now sits at sixth place among GOP contenders with 4.3 percent of support.

With the Iowa caucuses drawing near, Bush has renewed his attacks against Trump, accusing him of being a “strong supporter” of Clinton.

Trump "said some things that are just outrageous,” Bush argued.

"His views on policy have shifted with the winds. He is a strong supporter, until recently, of Hillary Clinton. And now he’s the front-running candidate for the Republican nomination. Someone has to call him out,” he said.

About a dozen Republicans are seeking their party’s nomination for president.

However, Clinton is competing against only one Democrat and one independent senator, Bernie Sanders, for the Democratic Party's nomination. Only Sanders is considered at all competitive in the early primaries, even as he operates with far less money than the former secretary of state.
