Jeb: Trump’s Comments ‘Extraordinarily Ugly’
Jeb Bush, married to a Mexican, has finally weighed in on Donald Trump.
“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way outside the mainstream of what Republicans think,” Bush said after two Independence Day parades in New Hampshire.
“No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders,” he said. “Everybody has a belief that we should control our borders.”
“But to make these extraordinarily ugly kind of comments is not reflective of the Republican Party,” Bush added. “Trump is wrong on this.”
Bush’s remarks come as both men compete for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination.
He added that he finds Trump’s comments especially distasteful given his wife Columba was born in Mexico.
“Absolutely,” Bush responded when asked if he is personally offended by Trump’s rhetoric.
