By Gerry Urbanek. During the eighth Republican debate, a question directed to Donald Trump regarding his support for eminent domain turned into a nasty argument with Jeb Bush and resulted in the audience booing.
“A lot of the big conservatives that tell me how conservative they are, I think I’m more [conservative] than they are, they all want the Keystone Pipeline. The Keystone Pipeline, without eminent domain, it wouldn’t go ten feet. You need eminent domain. It’s a good thing, not a bad thing,” said Trump . . .
After a back and forth,Trump was given an opportunity to respond, and that’s when things got heated.
“He wants to be a tough guy… and it doesn’t work very well,” Trump began. “How tough is it to take property from an elderly woman?” Jeb interjected. “Let me talk, quiet,” Trump said raising his finger to his mouth.
At this the audience erupted into booing of Trump as he was trying to make his point.
“That’s all of his donors and special interests out there,” Trump said, visibly irritated. “That’s what it is, and by the way, let me just tell you, we needed tickets, you can’t get them. You know who has the tickets to the television audience? Donors, special interests, the people that are putting up the money. That’s who it is,” Trump said, shrugging as he continued to be booed.
