Trump To Bush: ‘More Energy Tonight. I Like That.’

September 16, 2015 8:43 p.m.

Republican Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said that GOP rival Jeb Bush had “more energy tonight” during Wednesday’s CNN debate.

Trump had repeatedly called Bush a “low-energy” candidate during his campaign.

Bush noted that Trump invited Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to his wedding, which she attended.

“Jeb, I was a businessman. I got along with Clinton, I got along with everybody,” Trump said.

“The fact is,” Bush interjected, as Trump talked over him.

“Excuse me one second,” Trump said.

“No,” Bush responded.

“More energy tonight, I like that,” Trump said, to laughter.
