The tweet from Trump, a vocal backer of the AFC rival New England Patriots and their star quarterback Tom Brady, came after the Jets lost to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
 
That loss, along with a win Sunday by the Pittsburgh Steelers over the Cleveland Browns, put the Steelers in the playoffs instead of the Jets.
 
Former Gov. Bush (R-Fla.) tapped Johnson as his top fundraiser in June.
 
In response to Trump, Bush campaign aide Matt Gorman retweeted a Trump tweet from shortly before the 2012 election where the outspoken businessman suggested that Johnson exemplified "real patriotism."
