Donald Trump Tells Jeb Bush To Speak English

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told fellow GOP candidate Jeb Bush to speak English today.

“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 referring to Bush's Spanish comments about him on Tuesday while campaigning in Miami.

"El hombre no es conservador," Bush told a Hispanic reporter about Trump, noted the Tampa Bay Times, which translated Bush's statement to mean: "The man is not conservative."

"Besides, he tries to personalize everything," Bush added in Spanish. "If you're not totally in agreement with him you're an idiot, or stupid, or don't have energy, or blah blah blah."

Back at Breitbart News, Trump slammed Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who is also running for president, for criticizing Trump's slogan: "Make America Great Again."

Rubio said this week in Carson City, Nevada, that America is currently “great," noted The  New York Times.

In response, Trump told Breitbart News that Rubio is “Jeb’s plebe," and added:

If Marco thinks that the country is great now, he’ll never be elected president because it’s not what it was and it’s not great enough—and we will make the country great again. But if Marco is satisfied—I like Marco, but that means he’s satisfied. You can’t be satisfied [with where the country is now]. You have to use the word "again." It’s very important, because if he’s saying that, then that means there’s no room for improvement. That means he’s satisfied, that means he’s unelectable.
