It did not take long for Jeb Bush and Donald Trump to begin sparring during Tuesday night's GOP presidential debate. Bush labeled Trump a "chaos candidate" as evidenced by his recent controversial statements.

The former Florida governor's criticism of Trump came in response to a question about why he called Trump "unhinged" after Trump's Muslim proposal.

"If we're going to ban all Muslims, how are we going to get them to be part of a coalition to destroy ISIS?" Bush said. "Look, this is not a serious proposal.
