Trump revels in Rubio-Bush feud

Donald Trump reveled in the brewing feud between the two rival Republican candidates he often criticizes on Sunday.

Trump posted a half dozen tweets on Sunday morning calling out both Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush and seeming to take quite a bit of pleasure in their feud.


Friction between Florida Sen. Rubio and former Florida Gov. Bush exploded at the third GOP presidential debate, with Bush calling out his one-time mentee for his Senate attendance record – only to have Rubio counter-punch back effectively.

“The only reason you’re doing it now is because we’re running for the same position. Someone convinced you attacking me is going to help you,” Rubio spat back.

Trump seems to be enjoying their rivalry as new fodder for his frequent attacks on both rival candidates.

In other tweets, Trump criticized Rubio for his stance on immigration, tweeting that “Rubs can’t win” because he was endorsed by billionaire Paul Singer, who Trump dubs “Mr. Amnesty” because he advocated for immigration reform.

“Weak on illegal immigration, strong on amnesty and has the appearance to killers of the world as a “lightweight,” reads another anti-Rubio Tweet in part.

He also slammed Bush for his newest slogan. “Jeb can fix it”. “I never thought of Jeb as a crook! Stupid message, the word “fix” is not a good one to use in politics!”
