Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is under fire for criticizing and mocking fellow presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

 

NBC News reports that Trump posted a tweet of a Nazi swastika next to a picture of Bush. He also posted a number of other pictures that mocked Bush, including one of Bush wearing a mariachi costume, which was considered offensive since Bush’s wife is Mexican.

 

Trump has been receiving ample criticism from the media and other Twitter users for his inflammatory post.

 

“Tweeting out swastikas and racial stereotypes to attack @jebBush. Very grown up," one Twitter user sarcastically wrote.

 

Trump’s campaign claims that he did not see the photo before he retweeted the post  “like hundreds of others.”

 

Trump’s campaign has been under fire before for inflammatory tweets. 

 

In July, his campaign tweeted an image featuring Nazi uniforms, and a month later, one of his aides was fired for posting a racially-charged statement to Facebook.

 

Trump recently fell to second place in the polls, after leading since he entered the race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson is now the frontrunner.
