Trump Continues Random Attacks, This Time On Anderson Cooper

Donald Trump's attacks don't seem to have a rhyme or reason. He is going after his own party, dead presidents, and journalists. Today, on his trip to the U.S.-Mexico border in Laredo, Texas, where he refused to apologize to those who were offended by his claim that "many of those who have entered the country illegally are rapists," according to Time.

As reported this week by the Inquisitr, Donald Trump has shown that not only will he not back down, but he prefers to turn up the heat, as demonstrated by his speech in which he shared Sen. Lindsey Graham's private cell phone number with the press in a public conference.

"I don't know — it's three or four years ago — maybe it's an old number," Trump said. "Your local politician: He won't fix anything, but he'll still talk to you."

In a broadcast that will air tonight on CNN, Anderson Cooper is in the direct firing line of a Trump attack. Cooper shared a poll that puts Trump in a negative light, and the attack was on.

"I am leading across the board," Trump said in the interview. "And then you hit me with this poll that I didn't see before, where oh, gee, it's not even that kind of a poll. All I know is I have a very big group of support. And I think one of the reasons."

Then Trump took it to a personal level.

"Let me tell you. The people don't trust you and the people don't trust the media. And I understand why," Trump lectured Cooper.

Trump continued to flex his muscle, beaming with pride as he defended his bravado.

"You know I tell the story, the American dream -- I talk about the American dream in speeches," Trump said. "The American dream is dead but I'm going to make it bigger, better and stronger than ever before. The American dream is dead. But I'm going to make it bigger, stronger. Right. And I go 'boom!' and I do it with great bravado and the audience goes crazy. "

The Hill is now reporting that Trump is considering running as a third party candidate, as the RNC has not been on his side.

"The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy," the business mogul told The Hill in a 40-minute interview from his Manhattan office at Trump Tower on Wednesday. "The RNC has been, I think, very foolish."

Do you think Donald Trump is a bully or is he presidential?
