GOP Presidential candidate Donald Trump said Thursday he’d gladly accept the "mantle of anger" from South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
Trump said during the Fox Business Network’s primetime presidential primary debate that he was not offended by Haley’s speech following President Obama’s State of the Union address Tuesday. Haley, who gave the Republican response, urged people not to follow angry voices.
She did not call out Trump by name, but when asked the following day if she was referring to the Republican frontrunner, she said, “He was one of them, yes.”
“Mr. Trump has definitely contributed to what I think is just irresponsible talk,” she said.
Trump reiterated Thursday he is upset over the way the U.S. is being run.
“I am very angry because our country is being run horribly and I will gladly accept the mantle of anger," Trump said. “Our country is being run by incompetent people."
Trump said he wouldn’t be angry once issues with health care, veterans, the military and the border were fixed. But until then, Trump said he would remain “very, very angry.”
