Donald Trump appears to have deleted a tweet he quoted that made questionable comments about Jeb Bush and his wife.

On July 4th, Trump quoted another users tweet which claimed to know why Bush likes “Mexican illegals.”


The tweet appeared to be live for 24 hours before Trump deleted it. Bush’s wife, Columbia, is Mexican.

Bush responded to Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants being rapists and drug lords over the weekend.

“I don’t think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what most Republicans think.”

Trump is currently polling number 2 among Republicans in New Hampshire.

Trump’s momentary endorsement of a tweet wouldn’t have been the first time he took  a shot at Bush. The former NBC reality star called his opponent “weak on immigration” while speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this year.

“I don’t see him winning,” Trump added.
