Donald Trump is not happy with Jeb Bush right now, which really isn’t news. He’s been upset with Jeb for years for opposing gambling, which affected his business ventures. Now, Trump is furious over a new attack ad posted online in which the Bush campaign uses Trump’s own words to highlight his flip-flopping on issues.
The video, entitled “The Real Donald Trump,” shows the real estate mogul taking some very liberal stands, including supporting abortion, supporting his “friend” Hillary Clinton (and endorsing her as qualified to make a nuclear deal with Iran), supporting higher taxes, and even identifying as a Democrat on many issues. He then states his views are different from those living in Iowa, a statement which is likely to have a negative effect on caucus voters in the state.
Trump took to Twitter to vent, as well as several TV appearances. Among his responses on Twitter were “Yet another weak hit by a candidate with a failing campaign. Will Jeb sink as low in the polls as the others who have gone after me?” and “Jeb is spending millions of dollars on ‘hit’ ads funded by lobbyists & special interests. Bad system.”

What do you think? Is the video out of line or fair game? After all, the ad uses Trump’s own words, and Trump has released ads doing the same thing to Bush. Let us know in the comments below!
