Donald Trump has gone on the attack again, this time directing his anger at the co-hosts of “The View.” The GOP presidential frontrunner criticized the ABC panelists over comments they made about him on Thursday’s show. See the video below.

During the “Hot Topics” segment, the co-hosts discussed Trump calling for the birth certificate of Republican candidate Ted Cruz, who is an American citizen but was born in Canada. Behar quipped, “Every man has a fetish… This is Donald Trump’s fetish, the birther thing,” referring to the real estate mogul’s previous fixation on President Obama’s birth certificate.

Whoopi Goldberg then asked, “Is that because he doesn’t understand the law or can’t do geography?” But Candace Cameron Bure may have hit the nail on the head when she said that Trump “did what he set out to do,” which was to have people talk about him questioning Cruz’s birth certificate. She added that Americans are now “confused,” and will be wondering about Cruz: “Is he an American citizen? Or is he not?”

Well, “The View” co-hosts who most took Trump to task got slammed by the candidate on Twitter. He first wrote, “Joy Behar, who was fired from her last show for lack of ratings, is even worse on @TheView. We love Barbara [Walters]!” Trump followed that up with a second tweet that read, The @TheView @ABC, once great when headed by @BarbaraJWalters, is now in total freefall. Whoopi Goldberg is terrible. Very sad!”

Check out the video below of the women of “The View” talking about Trump wanting to see Ted Cruz’s birth certificate.
