Washington, Feb 21: Donald Trump, who won the Republican primary in South Carolina on Saturday to register back-to-back victories, drew flak for not acknowledging former Florida governor Jeb Bush who pulled out of the presidential election race after a poor show.
A former official of the Barack Obama Administration and a political commentator termed Trump as a "classless clown" for ignoring Bush in his victory speech during his he thanked his own family, among others. "Something is wrong in our country," the commentator said while speaking in a discussion programme on the South Carolina primary on CNN.
Trump's rivals, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, both of whom were almost tied in the second spot, however, did not miss the chance to do what Trump didn't---praise Bush for his contribution to the country's politics.
Trump and Bush had an ugly clash over issues like Iraq War, the Bush family and the former's business links ahead of the South Carolina primary.
