Donald Trump practically loses his mind calling in to CNN’s “New Day” with Chris Cuomo this morning to slap back at Dr. Ben Carson, who yesterday appeared to question the depth or reality of Trump’s religious faith.
On Wednesday, reporters asked Carson what differences there were between the two candidates. From CNN:
“Probably the biggest thing — I’ve realized where my success has come from and I don’t in anyway deny my faith in God,” Carson said.
He explained what he meant by quoting what he said was one of his favorite bible verses.
“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life and that’s a very big part of who I am. I don’t get that impression with him,” Carson said of Trump. “Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t get that.”
“Who is he to question my faith?” Trump asked this morning. “He knows nothing about me. I am a man of faith.”
“I hardly know Ben Carson. I’m a believer, big league in God. I will hit back on that.”
“I don’t think he’s a great religious figure. If you look at his faith, you’re not going to make it very far.”
Trump also addressed Carson’s personal energy as problematic. “He makes Bush look like the energizer bunny. Ben Carson is not going to be your next president.”
