Donald Trump is reportedly threatening to sue a Jeb Bush donor over ads trashing the front-running GOP candidate as a "narcissistic BULLYionaire with a hunger to be adored."

A full-page ad that ran last Sunday in the Miami Herald — bought by businessman Miguel "Mike" Fernandez, founder of MBF Healthcare Partners — also likens Trump to some of history's bloodiest demagogues, and urges fellow Republicans to oppose Trump's White House bid.

Politico
posted the ad in advance of its first run.

The anti-Trump blast will also run this Sunday in newspapers in Des Moines and Las Vegas, where a GOP presidential primary candidates' debate will take place Dec. 15, the Miami Herald reports.

According to the Herald, Trump lawyer Alan Garten sent Fernandez a one-paragraph letter on Trump Organization letterhead last Friday ahead of the first ad splash.

"Though we believe your decision is fool hearted, please be advised that in the event your ads contain any false, misleading, defamatory, inaccurate or otherwise tortious statements and representations concerning Mr. Trump, his businesses or his brand, we will not hesitate to seek immediate legal action to prevent such distribution and hold you jointly and severally liable to the fullest extent of the law for any damages resulting therefrom . . .  and will look forward to doing it," the letter states, the Herald reports.

Fernandez was unapologetic.

"Only in America can an immigrant scare a #bullyionaire," he tells the Herald. Fernandez came to the United States from Cuba at age 12 in 1964.

"If there is any damage being done to the Trump brand, it is by Donald Trump himself."

According to the Herald, the Trump Organization letter was also sent to James Robinson of Miami, whom Trump listed as a representative of Right to Rise PAC, Inc.

The Herald reports Robinson is treasurer for Right to Rise leadership PAC, a separate entity from Right to Rise USA, the super PAC backing Bush that's raised more than $100 million.

Fernandez bought the ad space on his own, the Herald reports.

"This lawsuit appears to validate Mr. Fernandez's accurate claims that Donald Trump lacks the temperament to be president of the United States," said Paul Lindsay, spokesman for Right to Rise USA.

"It follows the pattern throughout Donald’s career of using bullying tactics and the legal system to make up for his deep-seated insecurities and repeated business failures."
