Jeb Bush: I told you Trump 'would be a chaos president'

Former Fla. Governor Jeb Bush, speaking to hedge fund managers on Friday, urged his once-rival President Donald Trump, to quit tweeting.

Speaking at a Las Vegas hedge fund conference on Friday, Bush offered some free advice to the president: find the leakers, and fire them.

"There is a reason why he tweets, which is to go around the press and directly communicate with millions of people, and he is effective in doing that".

"Unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now", said Bush, who was seated on stage next to former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Trump is unlikely to stop Tweeting, no matter how many people in the political and financial elite tell him to, since he views his Twitter account as a direct line of communication-past the media industry-to the public.

Bush added that instead of "executing on a clear agenda", the Trump administration is too busy "living in the tyranny of the moment".

Bush, whose father and brother had previously served in the White House, bowed out of the Republican presidential primary in February 2016, after a long slide the polls.

Bush did praise numerous appointments Trump has made as president, but he also said his prediction on the campaign trail last cycle that a Trump presidency would be rankled by "chaos" has also come true. "People should be fired if they're disloyal to the president of the United States and leaking".
