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.
Donald Trump:’Katrina is a great addition to our team as we continue to expand throughout the country!’
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has signed former Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) supporter and Tea Party activist Katrina Pierson as his new national spokeswoman, the campaign announced Monday afternoon.
"Katrina is a great addition to our team as we continue to expand throughout the country," Trump said in a statement about the Dallas/Fort Worth-area Tea Party activist.
Donald Trump ranks first in the last poll determining the lineup of the GOP’s next main stage presidential debate.
The real estate mogul, with 26 percent support, has a 3-point lead over former neurosurgeon Ben Carson, according to the Fox News survey.
Sens. Ted Cruz (Texas) and Marco Rubio (Fla.) are tied for third place, with 11 percent each.
Former Govs. Jeb Bush (Fla.) and Mike Huckabee (Ark.) take 4 percent apiece, as do Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Gov. John Kasich (Ohio). Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina then takes 3 percent, and Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.) rounds out the GOP’s top 10 with 2 percent.
Donald Trump on Monday invoked New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady to suggest himself as the best Republican presidential candidate on the international stage.
"We need very strong people, because our country is being taken away like candy from a baby," Trump said in an interview on Fox Sports 1's "The Herd" with host Colin Cowherd.
"We need strong people. We need the Tom Brady of negotiators," Trump continued on the program, mentioning trade deals and the recently negotiated deal over Iran's nuclear program.
The celebrity real estate tycoon has long cast himself as a tough negotiator, suggesting his business skills could translate well into White House responsibilities.
Donald Trump:’When you talk about George Bush – I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time.’
Donald Trump pointedly notes in a new interview that the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks happened on President George W. Bush's watch.
In the interview with Bloomberg TV anchor Stephanie Ruhle, Trump did not directly blame Bush for the attacks.
Still, his remarks are sure to reverberate in GOP circles, especially given his rivalry with Jeb Bush — the former president's brother.
The topic came up when Ruhle raised a question near the end of her interview with Trump about leadership, and how some leaders have shown a softer touch.
