Former presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he thinks a Republican should challenge President Trump in next year’s presidential election.
“I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” said the former Florida governor in an interview that will air on CNN on Saturday.
Bush, who himself was unable to defeat Mr. Trump in the 2016 Republican primaries, said beating him in 2020 will be tough for anyone because the president has a “strong, loyal base” and it’s difficult to defeat a sitting president.
“But to have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important,” Bush also said, according to CNN. “And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people — that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards rather than revert back to a nostalgic time.”
Last year, Bush told the Yale Daily News that Mr. Trump is a “Republican in basically name only.”
