Who won the debate? Republican presidential debates 2015 schedule, Donald Trump dominates
Almost everyone is eager to know as to who really won the debate. While many are saying that it was Donald Trump who beat everyone else as he has been doing regularly and has topped every survey thus far, other contendersâ€™ fans believe their favored candidate beat everyone else.
The debate hosted by CNN last night, at The Venetian in Las Vegas, Nevada saw the Republican presidential hopefuls pounce on each other. Nonetheless amazingly, except of course Jeb Bush, no one was ready to do a duel with the billionaire businessman Donald Trump.
Jeb Bush who has been going down and down in the last few months not just took Trump head on but went on to mock him in a way that his fans never thought he was capable of doing.
The two debates, one undercard and the main debate had 13 candidates. While four candidates slugged it out early, the main debate had nine candidates. With most of the attention fixed on front runner Donald Trump and the U.S. senators nipping at his heels, many candidates looked to establish themselves as foreign policy hawks.
While no one attacked Trump, Bush took on him like never before. There is no denying the fact that many people are impressed the way Jeb took on Trump. Jeb Bush told the mogul he could not “insult” his way to the presidency. The two had heated exchanges about Trump’s controversial plan to temporarily bar Muslims entry to the United States. They also clashed over their ability to negotiate with foreign leaders.
Here is how the two tried to take swipe at each other
BUSH: So I was â€” I was â€” I was mentioned, so I can bring up something, I think, right? Look, the simple fact is, if you think this is tough youâ€™re not being treated fairlyâ€¦
TRUMP: This isnâ€™t tough and easy. I wish itâ€¦
BUSH: â€¦ imagine what itâ€™s going to be like dealing with Putin or dealing with President Xi.
TRUMP: I wish it was always this easy as you, Jeb.
BUSH: Or dealing with the Islamic terrorism that exists.
TRUMP: Oh, yeah.
BUSH: This is a tough business to run for president.
TRUMP: Oh, I know. Youâ€™re a tough guy, Jeb. I know.
BUSH: And itâ€™s â€” and we needâ€¦
â€¦ to have a leader that isâ€¦
(CROSSTALK) TRUMP: Youâ€™re tough.
BUSH: Youâ€™re never going to be president of the United States by insulting your way to the presidency.
TRUMP: Well, letâ€™s see. Iâ€™m at 42, and youâ€™re at 3. So, so far, Iâ€™m doing better.
BUSH: Doesnâ€™t matter. Doesnâ€™t matter.
TRUMP: So far, Iâ€™m doing better. You know, you started off over here, Jeb. Youâ€™re moving over further and further. Pretty soon youâ€™re going to be off the endâ€¦
