Republican Presidential Candidates Carson and Trump In War of Words Over Each Other’s Christian Faith


Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says opponent Ben Carson “makes [Jeb] Bush look like the energizer bunny.”

The Trump attack comes after Carson took a swing at Trump on faith on Wednesday night, saying, “I’ve realized where my success has come from and I don’t in any way deny my faith in God. And I think that is the big difference,” he told reporters in response to a question asking him to differentiate between the two of them.

Carson, 63, said he doesn’t get the impression that faith is a big part of Trump’s life. “By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life and that’s a very big part of who I am. I don’t get that impression, maybe I’m wrong but I don’t get that,” Carson said before his rally in Anaheim, California.

Trump, 69, who has mocked Bush as a cure for insomnia, fired back on Twitter Wednesday night: “Wow, I am ahead of the field with Evangelicals (am so proud of this) and virtually every other group, and Ben Carson just took a swipe at me.”
