Trump also took a jab at Castro’s twin brother, Julián, former Housing and Urban Development secretary and one of the Democratic candidates in the 2020 US presidential election.

“I don’t know who Juaquin Castro is other than the lesser brother of a failed presidential candidate (1%) who makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth,” Trump tweeted on Wednesday evening.
