politico.com – By Hadas Gold – Donald Trump attacked weekly standard editor Bill Kristol on Tuesday, the same day a new report suggested Kristol is floating a third-party candidate who is also a National Review staff writer.
“Bill Kristol is a loser,” Trump said during his press conference on Tuesday. “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.”
Over the weekend, Kristol tweeted that “There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.”
Trump echoed the statements in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, which will air on Tuesday night, saying he didn’t think Kristol’s idea for a third-party candidate would never pan out.
