Trump attempted to smooth over the situation, telling Bush, "I have to tell you, I hear phenomenal things. I hear your wife is a lovely woman."

Trump suggested the quote was a mischaracterization, but Bush pressed him further.

"She's absolutely the love of my life and right here and why don't you apologize to her right now," Bush said.

But Trump refused.

"I won't do that because I said nothing wrong, but I do hear she's a lovely woman," Trump said.
