By Steve Holland LACONIA, N.H. (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Thursday rejected what he called a bizarre notion voiced by front-running rival Donald Trump that people should speak English in the United States. Bush, who is bilingual in Spanish and frequently breaks into the language at his events, vowed to keep speaking Spanish whenever he feels like it. Trump, who has made opposition to illegal immigration a hallmark of his campaign in the November 2016 election, told a news conference in New York that, "We're a nation that speaks English." "Whether we like it or not, that's how people assimilate," he said, a day after he criticized Bush's use of Spanish.
