Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump blasted Jeb Bush's campaign manager Wednesday for speaking to a group in Germany after a published report that highlighted the former Florida governor's campaign problems.

Trump said of Danny Diaz on Twitter:


The billionaire developer cited an article from U.S. News & World Report, which said that Diaz spoke to the International Conference for Political Communications in Berlin on Monday.

During his speech, "before a mostly European audience," Diaz "ticked off selective polling numbers pitting Bush against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, touted early state advertising buys and trumpeted a handful of endorsements by elected officials," the report said.

A Bush spokeswoman told U.S. News that the Berlin trip was scheduled before Diaz joined the campaign in June and that he was only there for "like five hours."

However, the report said that Diaz's trip did not "display the sense of urgency that many Republicans now believe Bush must engender in order to mount a comeback.

U.S. News cited Bush's sinking poll numbers as placing him into a "second-tier status" in the race. "He's stuck in a single-digit polling slump, idling between fourth and fifth place … even after his allies have blitzed the television airwaves with more than $5 million in advertising.

"His much-heralded fundraising prowess has also been neutralized," the report added, saying that Bush has brought in about as much money as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and has "saved less" than retired pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson.

The article raised other problems facing the Bush campaign, including his flubs in the press — adding that he has been "continually emasculated by Trump's taunts and transcended by [Florida] Sen. Marco Rubio's natural eloquence."
