Keeping up with his xenophobic style, Donald Trump has now attacked Jeb Bush for speaking Spanish.
“I like Jeb,” Trump told Breitbart News. “He’s a nice man, but he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”
Trump was responding to a criticism Jeb made of Trump when he commented that Trump was not a true conservative.
“El hombre no es conservador,” Bush told the Tampa Bay Times. Translated from Spanish, that means: “The man is not conservative.”
“Besides, he tries to personalize everything. If you’re not totally in agreement with him you’re an idiot, or stupid, or don’t have energy, or blah blah blah,” Bush told the Times.
While speaking with Breitbart, Trump countered Jeb’s statement that he isn’t a true conservative.
“You know, Ronald Reagan wasn’t a conservative,” Trump said. “He became a great conservative. By the time I’m finished, people will say I’m a great conservative. By the time I’m finished with the presidency, after eight years of the presidency, people will say I’m a great conservative – far greater than Jeb would ever have the ability to be.”
