Rick Perry has joined the Rubio, Bush, Romney choir hitting Donald Trump for his controversial comments almost a month ago. Perry told George Stephanopoulos:
I’ve said very clearly that Donald Trump does not represent the Republican Party. I was offended by his remarks. Listen, Hispanics in America and Hispanics in Texas, from the Alamo to Afghanistan, have been extraordinary people, citizens of our country and of our state. They have served nobly. And to paint with that broad a brush, that Donald Trump did — I mean he’s going to have to defend those remarks. I never will. And I will stand up and say that those are offensive, which they were.
Trump, who hit back at Rubio Bush and Romney, responded to Rick Perry via twitter.
Rick Perry failed at the border. Now he is critical of me. He needs a new pair of glasses to see the crimes committed by illegal immigrants.
