Bush Is 'Absolutely' Offended by Trump's Comments on Hispanic Immigrants and Mexico

Jeb Bush: "No tolerance" for Trump's views on Mexican immigrants (CBS News)

Jeb Bush says he's "absolutely" personally offended by Donald Trump's recent incendiary comments about Mexico and immigrants coming from the country.

Bush, the former Florida governor whose wife is from Mexico, made his comments about Trump to reporters at the end of two Independence Day parades in the first-in-the-nation primary state.

"I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think," Bush said. "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."

"He’s doing this to inflame and to incite and to get to draw attention which just seems to be the organization principle of his campaign. It doesn’t represent the Republican Party or its values," Bush added.

During his announcement speech nearly three weeks ago, Trump blamed Mexico for allowing immigrants to illegally cross into the United States.

...In the weeks since, several companies have cut ties to Trump and Democrats have seized on the remarks as further evidence of the GOP's difficulty in appealing to Latinos and other minority groups.
