Showing that he sometimes is made aware that he has gone too far, 2016 GOP presidential contender Donald Trump deleted an offensive tweet aimed at rival Jeb Bush’s wife who was born in Mexico.
On July 4th, Trump retweeted a Twitter comment reading: “@RobHeilbron: @realDonaldTRump #JebBush has to like Mexican illegals because of his wife.”
The tweet stayed up for 24 hours before Trump deleted it.
Bush’s wife, Columba, was born in León, Guanajuato, Mexico, and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1979.
