Jeb Bush Trashes Trump's Taco Tweet

IJeb Busht was a tweet about tacos that unleashed backlash for Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump earlier this month.

On Cinco de Mayo, Trump tweeted a photo of him eating a taco bowl, saying how the best tacos are made in Trump Tower. 

Weeks later, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has chimed in on the tweet, saying it was insensitive to Hispanics. “What Trump did was so insensitive," Bush told Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad. "First, not all Hispanics are Mexican. Secondly, not all Hispanics eat tacos. Thirdly, showing your sensitivity by eating an American dish is the most insensitive thing you can do. Fourthly, to say this, next to all things he already said, is a further insult. It’s like eating a watermelon and saying ‘I love African-Americans.’ ”

 

Bush also said Republicans would have themselves to blame if they lost the election in November.
