Donald Trump has been slipping in national polls and is now behind Dr. Ben Carson according to a Wall Street Journal-NBC News poll released on Nov. 2. In response, Trump has gone on the attack, criticizing Carson’s lack of experience and calling on former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to drop out of the Republican presidential contest.

 Donald Trump, who has no experience in politics himself, said Carson “doesn’t have the experience” to be president, reports MSNBC.

“You know, you’re born with it,” Trump said in an interview with "Good Morning America." “It’s not his thing. He hasn’t got the temperament for it. It’s not the right thing for him.”

Trump was also dismissive of Bush, who recently revamped his campaign by launching a “Jeb Can Fix It Tour” and releasing an e-book about his personal side, Reuters reported.

"Look, Jeb is a nice guy. He's a stiff, OK? He's a nice guy. ... He doesn't have a chance, all right? He ought to do what Walker did," Trump said, according to The Hill.

"Good Morning America” host George Stephanopoulos asked, "You think he should drop out?”

Trump replied, "Absolutely. He has no chance. Jeb is not a man who is going to make it. He's wasting his time. He's wasting a lot of money."
