Jeb Bush says he doesn't think his Republican presidential opponent Ted Cruz has eligibility issues stemming from his Canadian birth, and placed blame on Donald Trump for perpetuating the controversy.

The former governor of Florid told Sean Hannity on the radio Thursday when asked if he thought Cruz's eligibility was an issue: "No, I don't. I'll just leave it at that."

"You know this is what Trump does," Bush continued. "He says something and then he pulls back. 'Well I didn't say it, someone else said it. I'm just repeating what someone else said.' Come on man. Let's get to the issues."

In an interview with the Washington Post on Tuesday, Donald Trump said Ted Cruz's Canadian birth would be a "big problem" for the Republican Party. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul added on Wednesday that he was not sure if Cruz was eligible to be president of the United States either. (Both men previously had said it was not an issue.) On the same day, Arizona Sen. John McCain also said that he wasn't sure if Cruz was eligible.
