Oops!… Bush Family Used Eminent Domain to Build Texas Baseball Park
The establishment media cheered Jeb Bush’s performance last night at the ABC GOP debate.
The media was particularly pleased with how Jeb went after Donald Trump on eminent domain.
Jeb slammed Trump for using eminent domain in his building projects.
But Jeb forgot to mention his family used eminent domain too – to build a baseball park.
The Hill reported:
Following attacks from primary rival Jeb Bush about his past use of eminent domain, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Sunday accused the Bush family of using the practice to build a baseball stadium in Texas.
“Eminent domain is a very important thing,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Jeb Bush doesn’t understand what it means, and if you look into the Bush family – I found this five minutes ago – they used eminent domain for the stadium in Texas, where they own, I guess, a piece of the Texas Rangers.”
When host George Stephanopoulos said that was Jeb’s brother, former President George W. Bush, Trump said his point still stands.
“That doesn’t matter,” he said. “It was the Bush family. They used private eminent domain. He didn’t tell anybody this. So, I mean, he should have told people.”
“Maybe – he probably doesn’t know because I don’t think he even knows what eminent domain is,” he added. “But I just found that out five minutes ago.”
