Donald Trump says former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush angered many Republican voters when he said a week ago that many illegal immigrants enter the United States as an "act of love" to provide for their families.

Appearing over the weekend at the "Freedom Summit" in Manchester, N.H., crowds booed Bush's words when Trump paraphrased them.

"That's one I've never heard of before. I've heard a lot. I've heard money, I've heard this, I've heard sex, I've heard everything. The one thing I've never heard of was love," Trump told the crowd. "I understand what he's saying. But, you know, it's out there."

Trump said Monday on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" that he was having fun when he made the remarks, so he was caught off guard at how strong the negative reaction was to Bush's statement.

Both Trump and Bush have said they are considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. Bush has the backing of the party's establishment, while Trump aligns with the conservative wing.

Trump told host Neil Cavuto he believes the United States is built on laws, and they should be respected.

"You either have a country or you don't," Trump said. "And if we're not going to have boundaries and we're not going to have borders, you don't have a country."
