Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Wednesday that he was tired of the “politically correct crap” to a group of South Carolina business leaders, according to Politico.
Trump questioned the dynamic between GOP rivals former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) who are competing in the 2016 race from the same state.
“This is what bothers me about politicians,” Trump said. “He announces he’s gonna run and they go to Jeb, ‘what do you think of Marco Rubio?’ ‘He’s my dear, dear friend, he’s wonderful, he’s a wonderful person, I’m so happy that he’s running.’ Give me a break.”
“That’s called politicians’ speak,” Trump continued. “Then they go to Marco, what do you think of Jeb Bush? ‘Oh, he’s great, he’s brought me along.'”
In reality, Trump said, Bush and Rubio “hate each other” and then he said that maybe voters don’t want straight-talkers.
“Maybe they don’t want a straight-talker. Maybe they don’t,” Trump said. “But I am so tired of this politically correct crap.”
