Presidential candidate Donald Trump turned to Twitter Thursday evening to respond to attacks mounted against him by Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
In a two-tweet response, the real estate billionaire said he only responds "to people that register more than 1% in the polls."
.... I only respond to people that register more than 1% in the polls. I never thought he had a chance and I’ve been proven right.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1441919486.0
Trump added that since Jindal failed to make the main debate stage during the Fox News face-off, the two "have never met."
Bobby Jindal did not make the debate stage and therefore I have never met him….— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1441919466.0
Jindal fired back to Trump, saying he was "disappointed" in the billionaire's response to him.
"Is this the best you can do?" he asked. "Are you suffering form low energy today?"
.@realdonaldtrump I’m disappointed. Is this the best you can do? Are you suffering from low energy today?— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@Gov. Bobby Jindal)1441923087.0
Jindal also disputed Trump's claim that the two had never met.
"We have met," Jindal tweeted. "You wrote a check."
.@realdonaldtrump We have met. You wrote a check. A fool & his money are soon parted. A fool & his dad’s money are parted sooner.— Gov. Bobby Jindal (@Gov. Bobby Jindal)1441923212.0
"A fool & his money are soon parted. A fool & his dad’s money are parted sooner," Jindal added.
