“Bush is so low, listen, wow, what’s going on with that guy?” Trump said at a rally in Clear Lake, Iowa, on Saturday.

“$69 million! It shows you, you can’t buy elections anymore. It’s really true. I think people are too smart for it.”
 
Bush’s presidential campaign has raised nearly $25 million, and super-PACs supporting the former Florida governor have amassed more than $103 million.
 
Trump, a billionaire real estate mogul, said he is self-financing his campaign.
 
He also said Bush is too low-energy to deal with the crises currently facing the nation.
 
“No, no he’s a little low-energy,” he said. “But that’s — we don’t need low energy, do we agree? We need high-energy.”
 
“Do you think ISIS wants to know about low-energy?” he added, referring to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). “You gotta knock the hell out of them — boom, boom, boom. You need a lot of energy.”
 
Trump leads the Republican primary, according to a RealClearPolitics average poll, with 34 percent support nationwide. Bush places sixth in the field with 3.7 percent support.
