On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Jeb Bush are both accusing the other one of being a loser.

Jeb’s a loser,” Mr. Trump said Monday on “CBS This Morning.” “He spent $110 million so far. He’s at the bottom of the pack or toward the bottom of the pack. He’s going nowhere. And the only thing he does is attack me.”

“He thinks if he attacks me, that’s going to show he’s tough, but every time he attacks me, he melts like butter,” Mr. Trump said. “He’s just a guy - I mean, it’s really sad. Every time I see an ad about myself, it’s him spending a lot of money, of special interest money. He’s not putting up his own money - he spends money from the lobbyists and the special interests to attack me.”

“So, you know, look - I don’t see him going anywhere,” Mr. Trump said. “The last thing we need, frankly, is another Bush.”

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Monday, Mr. Bush, the former Florida governor, chose “loser” to describe Mr. Trump in a word association game.
