Donald Trump Fires Back at Jeb Bush: He Should Lead by Example ‘Speaking English’ While in the United States



Donald Trump is tapping into the, this is still America theme, going after Jeb Bush and ripping him a new one as he questioned by Bush would feel the need to speak in Spanish rather than English. Donald Trump said in an interview with Breitbart“I like Jeb, He is a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that feeling? king English while in the United States.” It is just another example of as Hot Air opines, of Jeb Bush losing the primary to win the general election. Many conservatives believe Jeb to be a pro-amnesty sellout, how does speaking to reporters in Spanish do anything but to further that belief? But this is Jeb’s way of pandering to the Latino vote. Really Jeb, how about you try if anything pandering to the base of your party?


Trump had harsh words for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in this interview as well and lit into the donor class, all while saying that the “silent majority” in America is waking up and fighting to take back the country from the political class.

Trump also predicted that he will not only win the White House in 2016, but that he will be re-elected in 2020–predicting he will be a two-term president–and that at the end of his eventual eight years in the White House he will be known to all as a “great conservative” just like Ronald Reagan.

“I like Jeb,” Trump said. “He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”

“El hombre no es conservador,” Bush said in Spanish of Trump in Miami, according to the Tampa Bay Times. That means, according to that newspaper, that Bush is saying of Trump: “The man is not conservative.”

“Besides, he tries to personalize everything. If you’re not totally in agreement with him you’re an idiot, or stupid, or don’t have energy, or blah blah blah,” Bush continued in English, according to the Times.

Trump, in his exclusive with Breitbart News, ripped that argument—that somehow he’s not a conservative.

      Jeb was speaking in Spanish to get the attention of hispanic voters. However, Trump is right is calling him out on his choice of language. The native language of this country is American English and should be used for all speaking engagements.

      Mexican Spanish can be use if one is speaking in Mexico and it would be appropriate. There is a great difference in the Spanish generally spoken in Mexico when compared to what is spoken in Spain.

      That was really a childish, foolish thing to do. How immature ,let me see, I’ll speak spanish and all the latinos will vote for me, a two year old could figure that one out. Not a justified means to vote for someone.

      The United States is an English speaking country. There are those immigrant families that like to speak in other languages but among themselves. I look at what he did as stupidity toward our country. With so much concentration on illegal immigration he speaks to our people in spanish.

      There are many legal hispanics here that cannot find a job because the illegals are working them.

      I hope Trump can build his wall. We most assuredly need to deport but we also need to prevent more from coming. There’s nothing to stop them from crossing the border. The fences we have are a mess and there is no border patrol in place. Just walk right in.

      The situation is so bad that I think all candidates should sign a pledge to support deportation and support all means of preventing future illegals. That should be unanimous and not a negotiating issue.

      No es conservador, huh? Well, neither is Bush.

      I’m not worried about the Trump’s conservatism at this point, because the term has been so bastardized as to mean nothing. At least the man is standing up for America and Americans, which is more than I can say for Mr. Bush.

      #1…#3…I agree with you both.

      I believe that Donald Trump is the only candidate that is truly concerned about our country and is sincere as to changing the future of America for putting us back on track. Things are in disaster because of obama, his cronies and the democrats.

      I also think that Ben Carson is a very bad choice. Another soft-spoken hopey-changey, misleading voice. I really have a very untrustworthy feeling about him. I think his motives for being president, behind it all, is not what it should be.

      This is the United States of America. We speak English here.
