Jeb Bush took time on his campaign stop Friday in Carroll, Iowa, to talk Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton and his economic record.

Speaking inside a packed room at the Greasewood Flats Ranch with snow covering the ground outside, the former Florida governor said if the U.S. accepts Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim immigration, it would “send a signal that the U.S. is retreating in the world.”

Citing Benghazi, Bush said Clinton is smart and sincere but “I can’t give her credit for honesty and trustworthiness.” He added that he has the economic record to “take it to Hillary Clinton.”
