New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) on Tuesday fired more age-related insults at former President Trump, 77.
Sununu insulted the former president after Trump criticized Fox News for frequently interviewing the New Hampshire governor. Trump said Sununu, who is backing Nikki Haley in the GOP primary in his state, is a “loser” who made “really bad TV.”
“I suppose it’s tough keeping up with the conversation given your advanced age,” Sununu said in response in a post on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter.
“Maybe try subtitles next time. Thanks for watching,” Sununu added.
Trump is the heavy favorite in New Hampshire over Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and South Carolina governor.
“Why does Fox keep putting New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu on??? Every time I mention his name at a Rally, they BOOO like crazy,” Trump wrote Tuesday on his Truth Social platform.
“He’s all jacked up on something, but he ran for President, without having the courage to announce, and did really poorly,” Trump continued, referring to Sununu’s high-profile media appearances and his frequent campaign events with Haley.
Sununu did not run for president, though he was seen as a possible primary contender.
“To have this loser on so much is really bad TV,” Trump added.
The fiery exchange comes as New Hampshire GOP primary voters head to the polls to cast their ballots for either Trump or Haley, who have emerged as the two major Republican candidates.
According to The Hill/Decision Desk HQ’s GOP primary polling average, Trump heads into the New Hampshire primary with a 13.9-point lead, with 50.8 percent support, followed by Haley’s 36.9 percent. Nationally, Trump leads by 56 points, with Trump getting 68 percent support and Haley getting 12 percent.
Sununu on Monday said Trump lacked energy and could barely read a teleprompter.
