MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) - Republican presidential hopeful Jeb Bush blasted front runner Donald Trump during a campaign appearance in Mt. Pleasant Wednesday afternoon.

Speaking to a standing room only crowd at Waterfront Park, Bush chided Trump for using foul language during the campaign.
"Then he says we're gonna bomb the blank blank blank, I can't say it because we have beautiful children here, and by the way as president of the United States I will not use vulgarity," said Bush.

Bush also talked about what he says  are our country's biggest issues, beginning with the budget.

"We need a balanced budget amendment so the government and Washington learn to live within our means," said the former Governor of Florida.

He said our veterans deserve better service at VA hospitals. 

"Veterans died and three people have been fired. As president of the United States heads will roll outside that department. I will fire people for sheer incompetence," Bush warned.

Bush told the audience our military needs to be strengthened. 

"We need to rebuild the military, we need to get back in the game before it's too late," he told the audience.

Afterwards, the candidate was praised by one couple we spoke 
"He's a strong candidate. I really like him," said Bush supporter Jim Spalding

It remains to be seen if the support today will carry over to the primary election on February 20.

"If you believe we can fix the mess in Washington DC rather than talk about it, I'm your guy", said Bush before wrapping up his appearance.

After the event in Mount Pleasant, Bush headed to Murrell's Inlet for another rally.
