Donald Trump is confident he got the last word in his spat with Fox News, telling a crowd in Iowa on Saturday that he “love” Fox’s president Roger Ailes but told the media to ask him “who won.” 

Speaking at a press conference at the Iowa State Fair, where he arrived by helicopter on Saturday, Mr. Trump said his continued success in the polls prove that he has not made a mistake in his campaign.

“I love Roger Ailes but all you have to do is ask Roger Ailes ‘who won?’” Mr. Trump said, Mediaite reported. “I don’t think that I have made any mistakes. I am sure that I will, but so far you have to say, has it worked out so badly?” 

Last week Mr. Trump received criticism from numerous conservative media outlets for remarks he made in an interview with CNN about Fox News anchor and GOP debate moderator Megyn Kelly. Mr. Trump accused Ms. Kelly of targeting him with ridiculous questions saying she had “blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her whatever.” 

Mr. Trump argued that, unlike people he’s met on his tour, reporters are the only ones asking him to explain his controversial remarks and his planned policies. 

“When I said, ‘Mexico is sending’ I was talking about illegal immigration,” Mr. Trump said, referring to comments he made during his campaign launch speech. “The people understood it even though the press didn’t want them to. My numbers went up.”
