In the spin room following Thursday’s CNN Republican debate in Miami, GOP front-runner Donald Trump was confronted by Jeb Bush’s former communications director, Tim Miller.
According to video captured by Time reporter Zeke Miller, the former Bush campaign staffer asked Trump, “Where’s your tie made? Is that a Trump tie?”

Trump responded to Miller’s question by launching an attack.
“You did a great job with Bush. You did a great job representing Bush,” Trump fired back. “Where is your client? I’ll tell you what, Jeb could have won if it wasn’t for you.”
Miller’s question was an obvious jab at the Manhattan billionaire whose “Trump” branded suits and ties are made in China, according to multiple media reports this week. Many find the development hypocritical, given that Trump is often extremely critical of United States trade policy with China. The billionaire even has a policy proposal dedicated to reforming U.S.-China trade.
