GOP frontrunner Donald Trump takes to Twitter to criticize Jeb Bush, after news broke that a Bush campaign volunteer questioned Trump about women’s issues during a campaign event in New Hampshire on Monday.

As Breitbart News earlier noted:

At the town hall event, [Lauren] Batchelder asked “If you’re elected president, will I make the same as a man? And will I do what I want with my body?”

“You’ll make the same if you do as good of a job,”Trump responded. “And I happen to be pro-life.”

Bush’s spokesperson Allie Bradenburger tells Breitbart News that the young woman went on her own accord to the event, and her question was not sanctioned by the Bush campaign:

Like many in NH, Lauren is a student at St. A’s who is passionate about and active in politics and attended this event on her own accord. While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign, we can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women.

Lauren has never been paid staff, she has volunteered at events as she has for other candidates in NH.

A spokesperson from the Bush campaign also tells Breitbart News Batchelder will be able to continue volunteering at campaign events in New Hampshire, as she does with other campaigns.
