“If someone is looking for a committed conservative, consistently so, that's acted on their core beliefs across the spectrum of conservative policy, I'm their guy,” Bush told Bloomberg's With All Due Respect on Wednesday. “Donald Trump isn't. He's not a conservative. That's laughable. I mean, really?”

Bush said he wasn't expecting support from Palin, the 2008 GOP vice-presidential nominee who's favored Tea Party candidates. He did reserve some kind words for her as he trails Trump in the polls, however, highlighting her advocacy for children who have Down syndrome, like her son.

“I admire her commitment to the disabled. I love her passion for—love for her family and the fact that she's been actively involved in that. I love her pro-life stance,” Bush said.
