Jeb Bush says Donald Trump's continued use of profanity is an "underreported story" that is harming his standing with South Carolina voters ahead of the primary there.

"Donald Trump's profanity has been one of the underreported stories, here in South Carolina. My experience is people find it repugnant that he would use foul language in crowds where children exist," the former Florida governor told Newsmax Prime on Tuesday evening. "Those aren't South Carolina values."

Trump has used profane language several times at his rallies. At the most recent Republican debate, he promised he would no longer use such language.
