After releasing a new ad attacking Donald Trump’s past liberal views, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush continues to criticize Donald Trump — now in Spanish.

“He attacks me every day. He attacks me every day with barbarities,” Bush pointed out in Spanish, accusing Trump of not being a true conservative. “He supports people like Nancy Pelosi. He’s given money to Hillary Clinton. He was a Democrat longer than Republican. He’s said that he’s more comfortable being a Democrat. He doesn’t have a record, because he hasn’t been a person who has served like me, who served for eight years as governor. He’s not a conservative. That’s my point.”

Bush made his remarks during a town hall meeting at La Progresiva Presbyterian School in Miami and in response to questions in Spanish. The translation of Bush’s anti-Trump rhetoric in Spanish was completed by the Washington Post. After the event Bush continued speaking to Spanish-speaking reporters from Telemundo about his attacks against the billionaire candidate.

“He’s not conservative. He doesn’t have a career that you could say is conservative and beyond that, he personalizes everything,” Bush explained, in Spanish referring to Trump. “If you’re not totally in agreement with him, you’re an idiot, or stupid, or you don’t have energy or ‘blah blah blah.’ That’s what he does.”

Trump was quick to react to Bush’s attacks on Twitter but didn’t specifically react to the hostile rhetoric in Spanish.

“Yet another weak hit by a candidate with a failing campaign,” he wrote. “Will Jeb sink as low in the polls as the others who have gone after me?”
