Jeb vs. Trump Fight Escalates

The public fight between GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and Jeb Bush has intensified this week after repeated attacks by Trump on Jeb Bush’s record.

Trump’s attacks culminated in a video release earlier this week which features mugshots of illegal alien criminals along with a highlight of Jeb Bush’s remark concerning illegal immigration being “an act of love.”

The Bush campaign turned a sharp corner, having ignored Trump thus far, by releasing its own video this week accusing Trump of being a “closet liberal” and promising to cut him down to size.

It’s a big gamble on Bush’s part both because Trump’s operation has notable marketing prowess and because it risks painting Trump as a victim of the political establishment, which could likely earn him even more support.
