Trump Tweet Goes After Jeb Bush's Wife

Donald Trump has alleged that fellow Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush is weak on border-security issues as a result of having married a Mexican woman, The Hill reported.

On Wednesday, the billionaire real-estate mogul told CNN host Anderson Cooper that he was not sorry for having tweeted: “Jeb Bush has to like the Mexican illegals because of his wife.” Trump deleted the tweet soon after it appeared. He said he did not authorize it, but stood behind the message.

“I don't regret anything. … It was a retweet. It wasn't me. It was actually, if you look at it carefully, a retweet of a Breitbart story … If my wife were from Mexico, I think I would have a soft spot for people from Mexico. I can understand that. … I mean, maybe it should, If he loves his wife, and I know he does. I hear she is a lovely woman, by the way. So, if he loves his wife and she is from Mexico, I think it probably has an influence on him. Yes. I can understand that,” Trump said on CNN.

The Hill noted that Bush met his future bride, Columba, in Mexico when both of them were teenagers. She is an American citizen, having immigrated to the United States legally.
