ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump lashed out at Jeb Bush for his recent comments on funding for women's health programs on Tuesday. "Women's health issues: I'm for that. I watched Jeb Bush give the worst answer the other day. I think that is going to be his 47%. (Mitt) Romney possibly lost the election -- there are a lot of reasons, frankly, that he lost -- but one of the big reasons was his 47%... I think that Jeb's answer the other day on women's health issues is a disaster for him," Trump told reporters ahead of a speech in Birch Run, Michigan. Bush has had to correct a statement he madle in Nashville, Tennessee at a Baptist conference last week when he said, "I'm not sure we need half a billion dollars for women's health issues." Bush quickly made clear he was referring to a need to defund Planned Parenthood, but his original comment was quickly pounced on by Democrat Hillary Clinton, whose focus on Bush suggests she sees him as the real threat in the Republican field.
