While speaking at the SALT hedge fund conference in Las Vegas on Friday, former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush proffered some free advice to President Donald Trump: Fire disloyal people.
According to Axios, Bush responded with the advice when he was asked what words of wisdom he would offer the president if he were sure Trump would heed it.
“There’s too many different interests and the problem with this is I’ve never seen a White House as leaky as this one … there could be 15 to 20 sources on a particular subject,” he said. “People should be fired if they’re disloyal to the president of the United States and leaking.”
Bush said Trump’s tweeting habits were useful for bypassing mainstream media to communicate with Americans, however, he needs to “stop tweeting” anyway, CNN reported.
Jeb Bush at the SALT conference, per @renaemerle:
"But when [Trump] tweets, he also gives our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights."

The president’s tweets give “our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights” into the mind of the leader of the free world, Bush claimed.
