Donald Trump hits back at Bill Kristol for tweets he made over the weekend promising a competent third-party challenger, "with a strong team and a real chance." Trump responded at a Tuesday press conference where he was confrontational with the media.
"Bill Kristol is a loser," Trump said of Kristol's quest to find a third party candidate. "His magazine is failing, as you know. It's going to be down -- I don't think it even survives. He's getting some free publicity, but Bill Kristol, I've been watching this for two years."
Kristol responded soon afterward, tweeting Trump is a "roaring jackass":
I gather Donald Trump said I'm a loser. I've won some and I've lost some, but one thing I've always tried not to be is a roaring jackass.— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) May 31, 2016
