Donald Trump doesn't think that his Republican presidential rival Ben Carson has what it takes to be president.
"It’s not his thing," Trump told ABC News' George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America." "He doesn’t have the temperament for it. I think Ben just doesn’t have the experience."
The real estate mogul, who was the unanimous favorite among the polls, has dropped to second place behind Carson in two recent surveys, including a national one that had Carson at 29 percent and Trump at 23 percent.
"I like Ben, but Ben can't do the job, I mean there's no question about it," Trump told Fox News of the former neurosurgeon and current front runner. "He's not going to be able to negotiate with China. It's not his thing ... It's not in his wheelhouse, he's never done it before, and I don't think it's, you know, meant for him."
Since the third GOP debate, Trump has been vocal in his criticisms of the media, particularly towards host channel CNBC and its debate moderators, who he said disproportionately attacked him.
"We’re being asked very rude questions, many of them directed at me," Trump told ABC's Stephanopoulos regarding his displeasure with the debate. “I just want to have a debate. I want to answer tough questions."
He explained that he will negotiate directly with debate hosts on the right way to disagree in the future.
However, Trump has targeted no shortage of attacks himself in recent weeks.
Besides Carson, Trump has blasted the increasingly popular Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who he called "overrated," saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin "would eat him alive."
“I don’t think he’s going to make it,” Trump told Bloomberg. “I said at one point he was a lightweight and I don’t mean to be insulting, but I do describe people somehow well. I described Jeb Bush as a low energy individual and it unfortunately for him that stuck.”
He went on to criticize Rubio's low turnout on Senate votes, his recent rise through various elected official positions, and, of course, his appearance.
"I think I’m better looking than he is," Trump said.
