On Thursday evening, National Review unveiled a series of essays titled “Against Trump,” which make the case that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is not the conservative that he claims to be.

In a piece introducing the essays from by leaders of the conservative movement, National Review editors called the businessman “a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and trample it underfoot in behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as the Donald himself.”

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush took to Twitter to express his approval.

But some Twitter users were quick to remind Bush that the conservatives who wrote essays expressing dissatisfaction with the Trump candidacy have been making the case against the billionaire for quite some time — longer than the former Florida governor.

Trump and some of his supporters responded to the magazine on Twitter:

But the conservatives were unfazed.

The Republican National Committee has informed the National Review that they are no longer permitted to participate in the upcoming presidential debate in Houston on Feb. 25th due to the editorial.

Townhall's Katie Pavlich was quick to point out that in April Trump told his followers that it was "really important" to support National Review, which he called a "true conservative voice."
