Twitter Wars: Trump Deletes Retweet Slamming Jeb Bush’s Wife

Donald Trump: I didn’t expect backlash ‘this severe’ 1:18

Donald Trump reportedly retweeted -- and then deleted -- a tweet suggesting that Jeb Bush "has to like the Mexican Illegals" because he is married to a Mexican woman.

On the evening of July 4, Trump's account retweeted a post by user @RobHeilbron, who wrote "#JebBush has to like the Mexican Illegals because of his wife."

That tweet appears to have been deleted from Trump's account on Sunday.

Bush's wife, Columba, is Mexican.

Over the weekend, Bush criticized Trump's comments about Latinos, including the real estate mogul's statement that immigrants from Mexico are "rapists."

"I don't think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what most Republicans think," he told reporters in New Hampshire on Saturday.
