Real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump attacked Bob Vander Plaats, President/CEO of The FAMiLY Leader this morning on Twitter. Vander Plaats last month endorsed U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for President.

He started off quoting his Twitter follower’s tweets about an interview that Vander Plaats had on CNN as a surrogate for Cruz:

He then launched into direct attacks himself.

It has been Trump’s MO to trash any candidate, surrogate, or journalist who has disagreed or not supported him in the past. You’re a “good guy” if you like Trump. You’re a “bad guy” if you don’t.

While Bob Vander Plaats has his detractors among even some evangelicals, it probably isn’t the best idea if you truly want to reach evangelicals because Vander Plaats also has a lot of supporters in the evangelical community.  Going to a liberal Presbyterian church for worship last Sunday probably doesn’t help much either, but I digress.

Whether you like Vander Plaats personal attacks from candidates like this shouldn’t be tolerated. Pointing out policy differences is one thing, but this crosses a line which Trump has cross over and over and over again.

Do we really want to have this type of juvenile behavior coming from the White House? It’s time for Iowans to get serious and send this man-child packing.

Update: I missed Vander Plaats’ response on Twitter:

Jennifer Jacobs of The Des Moines Register confirmed:

Disclosure: This writer has endorsed U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for President.
