Donald Trump this week vowed to win the Latino vote, despite not backing away from comments he made three weeks ago that Mexican immigrants are criminals.

Over the weekend, Jeb Bush became the first Republican presidential candidate to denounce Trump’s remarks. The Republican party is divided over how to handle Trump, one month before the first presidential debate.

ABC News political director Rick Klein and Roll Call editor-in-chief Christina Bellantoni discuss the latest in the race for 2016 with Here & Now’s Robin Young and Jeremy Hobson.
