Billionaire businessman Donald Trump said Monday that the poll numbers of people like former Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, in the wake of their attacks on Mr. Trump, constitute one of the greatest honors Mr. Trump has had in his life.

Mr. Trump said he likes Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and really respects the fact that he hasn’t attacked him — unlike others who are challenging the real estate mogul for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

“You know the amazing thing? Everybody that’s attacked me — you look at [Rick] Perry, you look at this guy Lindsey Graham, I mean, vicious attacks,” Mr. Trump said on “Fox and Friends.” “They all went down to zero, and now they’re getting out of the race.”

“It’s one of the greatest honors I’ve ever had, I think, in my life. Everybody who attacks me goes down to zero,” he said. “Perry’s gone. Lindsey Graham is gone. They’re all gone.”

“And [Jeb] Bush, by the way, attacked me in a very modest way — you know he’s a low-energy person,” Mr. Trump said. “So when he attacks he attacks with low energy. But he’s going down, and it’s really sort of an interesting thing to watch.”
