Former Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he doesn’t believe Trump has had a sincere policy evolution on immigration. Instead, Bush told WABC radio, he believes Trump is just playing a game with the American electorate.

“I don’t know what to believe about a guy who doesn’t believe in things. This is all a game. His views will change based on the feedback he gets from a crowd or what he thinks he has to do,” Bush told WABC in an interview that was flagged by BuzzFeed.

Bush called Trump’s recent immigration flip-flop “abhorrent” and accused Trump of being a typical politician.

“It is everchanging. I’m happy he is making efforts to reach out to constituencies Republicans have ignored. I think that is a very healthy thing for our party. It is a smart thing for him to do if it is sincere,” Bush said. “But his views on immigration? I can’t comment on because we’re talking in the morning … and tomorrow it might be different.”
