Fellow Republican presidential candidates criticize Trump for his ‘Mexican’ comments

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's controversial comments about undocumented Mexican immigrants prompted severe criticism, even from his fellow Republican candidates.

On June 16, Trump described Mexican immigrants as 'drug-runners', 'killers' and 'rapists'. The controversial comments not only prompted denunciations from Latino groups but also cost the presidential candidate several valuable business sponsorships.

Other presidential candidates from the Republican Party also disapproved Trump's comments and said he went too far while expressing his views about a particular community.

Former Florida governor and presidential candidate Jeb Bush said, "His views are not reflective of the immigrant experience. He's just wrong."

Rick Perry, former governor of Texas, also criticized Trump for his controversial comments about Mexicans. In a recent interview, he described Trump's comments as "huge error" painted with a very broad brush. Mr. Perry stressed that Mr. Trump's comments didn't reflect the views of the Republican Party.

It is perhaps the severe criticism that Trump didn't refer to his those controversial comments while condemning the killing of 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle by illegal Mexican immigrant Francisco Sanchez. He, instead, focused on border security. He said the "totally preventable" act of violence committed by Sanchez showed that the United States must secure its borders immediately.
