W ithin the first few minutes of his speech Monday night, real estate mogul Donald Trump came out swinging at a primary opponent’s low standing in the polls and mocked the media’s coverage of his events.
At a rally in Columbus, Ohio, the Republican presidential candidate, who frequently alludes to polls, once again touted that he’s leading the pack and specifically took aim at Ohio Governor John Kasich on his home turf.
“Your governor is only 2 [percent]. What happened?” Trump said to a mix of cheers and boos.
The two presidential candidates have been recently sparring after a super PAC supporting Kasich launched a $2.5 million ad campaign against Trump. A day later, GOP operatives also waged a “guerilla campaign” to take down Trump.
Donald Trump:’There were people that were cheering on the other side of New Jersey, where you have large Arab populations!’
Trump said at a rally on Saturday in Birmingham, Ala. that he watched as the World Trade Center “came tumbling down.”
“And I watched in Jersey City, New Jersey, where thousands and thousands of people were cheering as that building was coming down,” he added. “Thousands of people were cheering.”
ABC “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos asked Trump on Sunday if he misspoke, noting that “police say that didn't happen and all those rumors have been on the Internet for some time.”
D onald Trump has retaken his lead atop the GOP presidential field in Iowa, according to a new poll released Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation."
Trump is polling at 30 percent in the all-important early voting state, and enjoys a 9-percentage-point lead over rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), in the CBS News 2016 “Battleground Tracker.”
The results come several weeks after the same poll found Trump tied at 27 percent with retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. Carson has dropped to 19 percent in the new poll.
Cruz picked up some of Carson’s lost support. His 21 percent in the latest poll is a 9-percentage-point boost from that late October poll, which showed Trump and Carson in a dead heat.
S en. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says Donald Trump's suggestion the U.S. set up a database to register and track Muslims is "outrageous and bigoted."
The Democratic presidential contender took to Twitter to blast the GOP front-runner on Friday, adding that Trump "should be ashamed of himself."
Trump sparked controversy following last week's Paris terror attacks by suggesting a database for U.S. Muslims, as well as special identification or warrantless searches to allow law enforcement to keep tabs on those of the Islamic faith.

Carly Fiorina:’Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won’t make you as smart as Ben Carson!’
Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina fired back at Donald Trump on Thursday, after the billionaire real estate mogul likened Ben Carson’s “pathological” temper as a young man to the mental issues of a child molester.
“Donald, sorry, I've got to interrupt again,” Fiorina wrote on her Facebook page, referencing a moment from Tuesday’s presidential debate in which Trump chastised the former Hewlett-Packard executive for interjecting.
“You would know something about pathological,” she continued. “How was that meeting with Putin? Or Wharton? Or your self funded campaign? Anyone can turn a multi-million dollar inheritance into more money, but all the money in the world won't make you as smart as Ben Carson.”
“The American people need to be told the truth about our ‘partner’ China,” he wrote in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal.
