SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A tweet from Donald Trump in response to Jeb Bush’s reaction to his comments regarding Mexicans was quickly deleted.

For a few moments, followers read, “Jeb Bush has to like the Mexican illegals because of his wife.”

Indeed, Bush’s wife is Mexican, and the GOP presidential hopeful said Trump’s comments about immigrants “personally offended” him, last week.

Trump’s remarks that Mexico is sending “rapists” and “killers” have prompted ESPN to cut ties.

The sports channel says it’s moving next week’s Espy Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Los Angeles, to Pelican Hill in Newport Beach.

Last week, Trump called for a boycott of Macy’s, after the retailer dropped his menswear line over the real estate mogul’s views on immigration.
