Las Vegas • Former Florida governor Jeb Bush has some simple advice for his former rival, President Donald Trump: Stop tweeting.
Bush appeared Friday alongside Valerie Jarrett, a longtime White House staffer during President Barack Obama's administration, at a three-day hedge fund conference held at Las Vegas's Bellagio Hotel. The event, the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference, known as SALT, was started by longtime Republican fundraiser Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci briefly threw his support behind Bush during the 2016 presidential election before ultimately backing Trump
Asked whether he supported the appointment of a special counsel to investigate possible collusion between associates of President Trump and Russian officials, Bush said: "Yes, I think we need a special counsel and I don't ⅛think⅜ the president should tweet." The crowd of Wall Street insiders laughed and applauded.
