Donald Trump retweets attack on Jeb Bush’s wife

Donald Trump apparently never heard the adage, “when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.”  Last week, he dealt with a number of business setbacks tied to comments he made about illegal immigrants from Mexico.  These comments have cost him deals with Univision, NBC/Universal, Macy’s and Serta.

However, despite these hits that he’s taken on the business front, Trump seems to believe that these statements will help him in his quest to gain the Republican nomination for the Presidency so, he’s digging in and standing by his comments.  But, even for Trump, there must be a line.  At least, that is what I gleaned from his decision to delete a retweet from his official Twitter account regarding the wife of fellow candidate Jeb Bush.


The tweet appeared on Trump’s for over 24 hours before being deleted. Jeb Bush’s wife, Columba, is from Mexico and has been a naturalized American citizen since 1979.

How this will play out in the business and/or political world for Donald Trump has yet to be seen.  The story on this tweet is just hitting the news outlets but, I suspect that this will only further create wariness around those who are debating whether Trump can really be a serious competitor for the Republican nomination.
