Has former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the usually composed Republican presidential candidate become unnerved by Donald Trump?

Trump has launched some verbal salvos at Bush regarding his stance on immigration.

Bush has largely stayed away from publicly criticizing billionaire real estate mogul over the course of the 2016 presidential race.

But behind closed doors the former governor of Florida reportedly has not minced his words for how he truly feels about his primary rival.

In an article in Thursday’s Politico, citing anonymous sources in the Bush campaign, during a recent discussion with a Republican donor, Bush unloaded on the billionaire.

“Seriously, what’s this guy’s problem?” Bush reportedly told the donor, adding that he thought Trump was “a buffoon,” a “clown” and an “asshole.”

Bush has been an active supporter of the Hispanic community. His wife Columba was born in Mexico. He speaks Spanish fluently and is a converted Catholic.

In an interview with the New York Times, he admitted that he took Trump’s virulent attacks on immigrants crossing the U.S. border with Mexico “personally.” He further accused Trump of trying to “inflame and incite and to draw attention” to his fledgling campaign.

Bush also responded to Trump after the business guru retweeted an attack that said the former Florida governor “has to like Mexican illegals because of his wife.”

“You can love the Mexican culture, you can love your Mexican-American wife and also believe that we need to control the border,” Bush said at an event last month in New Hampshire.

“This is a bizarre kind of idea that somehow you can have an affection for people in a different country and not think the rule of law should apply. That is ludicrous,” Bush added.

Tonight the two Presidential candidates will share the stage in the first Republican primary debate.

Trump has surged to first among Republican voters in recent polls. The media attention the billionaire has attracted with his bombastic style has made it difficult for the other candidates to garner any attention.

So it will be interesting whether Bush will directly confront Trump and how will Trump return fire, especially since he has been turning down the rhetoric in recent weeks.
