In a nearly half-hour interview with Telemundo Monday, a portion of which was aired on MSNBC, Bush, speaking entirely in Spanish, also told anchor Jose Diaz-Balart that he was “hurt” by GOP presidential primary rival Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico.
“I was hurt hearing somebody speaking in such a vulgar fashion,” he said. “This makes the solving of this problem much more difficult when we have politicians talking like that.
“Besides that, he was offending millions of people that are here legally. It makes no sense. In a political sense, it’s bad and it creates an environment that is worse. … And I believe it’s important that I as a candidate offer a more optimistic version than Trump’s negativeness.”
