In an ongoing showdown, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump took another swipe at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by criticizing his use of Spanish on the campaign trail.

“I like Jeb,” Trump said in an interview with Breitbart. “He’s a nice man. But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”

As part as his ongoing campaign to paint Trump as not a true conservative, Bush told reporters in Miami that “El hombre no es conservador.”

Bush, who met his wife in Mexico, has used Spanish frequently on the campaign trail, including during a portion of his presidential campaign announcement.
