It appears that Carly Fiorina is Trump’s new target based on a tweet he posted on Sunday and the billionaire slammed the Republican presidential candidate on social media. As reported by People magazine, Donald Trump tweeted the following sentence.
“I just realized that if you listen to Carly Fiorina for more than ten minutes straight, you develop a massive headache. She has zero chance!”

According to a report from Opposing Views, the feud between the two Republican presidential hopefuls began last week when Trump implied that Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly had been hard on him because she was on her menstruation cycle.
“You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes,” Trump told CNN’s Don Lemon. “Blood coming out of her wherever.”
Donald Trump’s comments during Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate were met with fierce backlash and several GOP contenders blasted the business tycoon — Fiorina joined in and responded with her own critical words.
Fiorina tweeted, “Mr. Trump: There. Is. No. Excuse.”

Fiorina, who is the only female GOP candidate, didn’t stop there and she continued with her criticism of Trump’s remarks in an interview on CBS’ Face the Nation that aired Sunday.
“I think women of all kinds are really sort of horrified by this,” Fiorina said. “Mr. Trump got asked tough questions by a lot of people on Thursday night, but he chose to attack Megyn Kelly. I think you cannot have a president who is thin-skinned.”
Although Megyn Kelly has not yet spoken publicly about Trump’s remarks, many Republicans have expressed complete disapproval of Trump’s antics. RedState editor Erick Erickson said Trump went too far with his insensitive remarks and he even disinvited Trump from the RedState Gathering, a conservative event featuring GOP presidential hopefuls in which Trump was scheduled to deliver the keynote speech.
Despite being the most controversial GOP presidential candidate, Trump is still leading the Republican field — even after a weekend of controversy — and he has managed to establish himself as a favorite in the Republican primary after the first televised debate. The latest NBC News Online Poll, conducted by SurveyMonkey, revealed that Trump is at the top of the list of GOP candidates that Republican primary voters would cast a ballot for if the primary were being held right now. Trump leads with 23 percent and Sen. Ted Cruz was next on the list with 13 percent.
