Jeb Bush Says Trump's Mexico Comments Were Done to 'Draw Attention'

After two Independence Day parades in New Hampshire, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) told reporters on Saturday that he is absolutely offended by Donald Trump's recent remarks on Hispanic immigrants and Mexico. Bush also said “I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way outside the mainstream of what Republicans think. No one suggests that we shouldn’t control our borders. 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.

"Trump is wrong on this.” In addition, Bush said "Absolutely" to whether or not he finds Trump’s comments especially distasteful given his wife Columba was born in Mexico. Bush added “He’s doing this to inflame and incite and to draw attention which just seems to be the organizational principle of his campaign.” The Bush family is currently vacationing at its Walker’s Point compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. The retreat is in close proximity to the Granite State. On Saturday, Bush marched in an Independence Day parade in Amherst before joining a second one in Merrimack.

Moreover, the Bushes are welcoming former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney and his wife Ann for lunch in Kennebunkport next week.
