Trump: Jeb Bush Will Get a 'Burst of Energy' and Endorse Me

"I appreciate that many of the people I competed against have now endorsed me."

Donald Trump predicted his one-time presidential foe Jeb Bush, who he repeatedly mocked as "low-energy," is going to get a "burst of energy" soon and endorse him.

"He will get a burst of energy, and he will do it, believe me," Trump told a crowd of supporters during a rally in Anaheim, California, Wednesday. "He needs a little more energy."

Trump also knocked Bush for his negative comments about his campaign recently during a trip to Europe.

"He didn’t think that in Europe I’d get the word back but he was talking there on television about me," Trump said. "They talk badly, I talk badly, that’s how it works."

During the same speech, Trump took aim at former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who he said "walks like a penguin," and Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, who the billionaire blasted for supporting the Iraq War — a position he once held. The two men are prominent leaders of the "Never Trump" movement.

"He’s been [looking for a third party candidate] for like nine months and he can’t find anybody. What a loser," Trump said of Kristol, before predicting the demise of the Weekly Standard, a conservative publication.

But it wasn't all criticism for everyone. The brash billionaire complimented South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who months back reluctantly supported Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) and is still outspoken about his disagreements with Trump.

"It was very nice that Lindsey Graham called," Trump commented. "Don’t forget, I wasn’t an angel — I gave out his phone number."

"I appreciate that many of the people I competed against have now endorsed me," he added.
