Trump fires back over Bush endorsement of Cruz

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump offered some digs Wednesday after former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush endorsed Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination. Trump alluded in Twitter posts to Bush’s presidential campaign, which ended Feb. 20 after poor performances in early Republican contests.

“Low energy Jeb Bush just endorsed a man he truly hates, Lyin’ Ted Cruz,” Trump tweeted, using one of his nicknames for Cruz, a Texas senator. “Honestly, I can’t blame Jeb in that I drove him into oblivion!”

Bush endorsed Cruz on Wednesday as Republican leaders seek to block Trump from getting the nomination. In Bush’s announcement, he said that for “the sake of our party and country, we must move to overcome the divisiveness and vulgarity Donald Trump has brought into the political arena, or we will certainly lose our chance to defeat the Democratic nominee and reverse President Obama’s failed policies.”
