Bush says Trump, Clinton both unfit for White House ahead of IPFW lecture

Former Florida governor and presidential candidate spoke at IPFW

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush visited Fort Wayne on Thursday to speak at the Omnibus Lecture Series at IPFW.

The former Florida governor met with the media then spoke to a group of students before Thursday night’s lecture, titled “Leadership, Redefined: An Evening with Jeb Bush.” Bush is the first of four speakers in the 22nd annual lecture series that features Fort Wayne native and New York Times journalist Charlie Savage; NCAA president Mark Emmert; and ground-breaking Dr. Bennet Omalu, the basis of the Will Smith movie “Concussion.”.

Bush ran for president on a campaign to reform education and reform Medicaid. He founded the nonprofit Foundation for Florida’s Future, which joined forces with the Urban League of Greater Miami to establish one of the state’s first charter schools.

Bush told the media Thursday that there’s a higher degree of anxiety in the country than in the past, and that pressure has to do with who is leading the nation. He said neither Donald Trump nor Hilary Clinton are fit for the country’s top job.

He did mention a couple of local politicians who are great leaders, though.

“The kind of leadership that I think we need is the kind of leadership that Mike Pence gave as governor, many others governors, certainly Mitch Daniels when he was Governor did some big, bold, proactive things and did it in a kind-hearted way,” said Bush. “We need to start getting back to that kind of leadership if we’re going to be effective fixing the mess we have.”
