Donald Trump, Jr. unloaded on the former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush said this week that he has children, the “I love” – a comment interpreted as a dig at the President.
“Jeb! I love everything about my father,” Trump Jr. tweeted Thursday. “I love it that he is a fighter, I love it that he has guts, I love it that he as a President (all of those things, which they are not).”
Jeb! I love everything about my father. I love it that he is a fighter, I love it that he’s got balls, I love it that he as a President (all those things which you are not)

The President’s oldest son, said his father: “Even the love he learned enough about politics in a couple of weeks to disassemble, piece by piece, even though it is her life’s work.”
Eric Trump came to his father’s defense
The Yale Daily News published a story on Wednesday about Bush’s appearance on the campus this week, where, according to the student newspaper, said Bush, he returned home to children, the “I love” after a disappointing finish in 2016 primary in South Carolina.
It was after that the primary that Bush dropped out of the race.
The paper reported that the comment was met with “wild laughter from the crowd,” and some viewers said that they “interpreted Bush’s comment to slash, as a side to trump.”
Another Trump’s son Eric Trump also tweeted to Bush: “.@JebBush I actually love my father very much. #PleaseClap.”

The “please clap” dig in regards to the video, which went viral during the campaign, Bush asks for a New Hampshire audience to applaud him – something critics of the show received less-than-enthusiastic reaction of his campaign.
Trump and Bush famously sparred during the campaign, with the New York business man, the dismissal of Bush as a “low energy.” Bush argues Trump a “chaos” – President would be. Bush does not endorse or support trump in the General election.
