New Hampshire GOPers Boo Jeb Bush After Trump Mocks His Immigration Stance
The 2016 speculation surrounding former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush may have hit a speed bump over the weekend. The road to the White House for moderate Republicans traditionally runs through New Hampshire and, speaking at an Americans for Prosperity event in the Granite State over the weekend, real estate mogul Donald Trump showed that the state’s roads may be rocky for the potential presidential aspirant.
Appearing at the Freedom Summit attended by a number of conservative activists, Trump mocked Bush’s recent comments about illegal immigration being at its core an “act of love.”
“You know, I heard Jeb Bush the other day,” Trump said, pausing for the chorus of booing from the audience to build. “And he was talking about people that come into this country illegally, they do it for love.”
“And I said, say it again I didn’t get — that’s one I’ve never heard before,” Trump continued, with the crowd’s boos growing louder. “I understand what he’s saying, but, you know, it’s out there.”
