CNN’s King: If You Want ‘Attention’ in GOP Primary, ‘You Go After’ Donald Trump

‘In a 16 candidates race, Donald Trump is a huge player right now’

KING: “Now to get attention in the Republican race -- it used to be -- remember, a year ago, we were talking about how Rand Paul out of the gates was being aggressive against Hillary Clinton. That’s how you got attention in the race. Now, if you want attention in the race you go after Mr. Trump. Rick Perry did that yesterday, the former governor of Texas, remember, he ran last time. He had a border state, of course. And he -- Listen to this statement from Rick Perry yesterday, ‘What Mr. Trump is offering is not conservatism; it is Trump-ism – a toxic mix’, strong words there, ‘a toxic mix of demagoguery and nonsense. America doesn’t need another president who pays lip service when issues of national security are at stake… Mr. Trump has done nothing to prove that he is the president America needs.’… He does this on Twitter and he didn't just say  Rick Perry, you are wrong and debate the policy. This is a Trump reflex. ‘Governor Perry failed on the border. He should be forced to take an IQ test before being allowed to enter GOP the debate.’ So, if you disagree with Donald Trump, you are not just wrong on the policy in his view, you are stupid.”
