Since declaring his presidential candidacy in June, Donald Trump has called Mexican immigrants rapists and murderers, dismissed a brutal, xenophobic attack against a homeless man in Boston as "passionate," implied that Megyn Kelly's hormones influence her journalism, and called for the end of birthright citizenship.
The response to Trump's incendiary and often hateful comments from many of the other Republicans in the field has largely been silence, a mild rebuke over language choice, or outright agreement. But on Thursday, Bush took Trump to task "for his record of supporting liberal policies.
"There's a big difference between Donald Trump and me," the former governor of Florida said at a forum in New Hampshire. "I?m a proven conservative with a record. He isn't. He?s been a Democrat longer than a Republican."
