While answering questions during a campaign press conference, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said that he did not regret using the term “anchor baby” during a Wednesday interview and turned the tables on the reporter for posing the question in the first place.
REPORTER: Do you regret using the term “anchor babies” yesterday on the radio?
BUSH: No I didn’t — I don’t. I don’t regret it. Do you have a better term?
REPORTER: Uhhh, no. I’m asking you —
BUSH: Ok, then. You give me a better term, and I’ll use it. I’m serious, don’t yell at me behind my ear though. Jeez.
Bush’s response closely echoed that of Republican front-runner Donald Trump when he was asked the same question on Wednesday. (RELATED: Trump Defends Using ‘Anchor Babies’ [VIDEO])
