After a fundraiser for Scott Walker called Donald Trump “DumbDumb” in an email, the real estate mogul on Saturday turned his insults toward the Republican Wisconsin governor and fellow presidential candidate.

“I can finally attack,” Trump said at an event in Iowa, calling Walker fundraiser and venture capitalist Gregory Slayton’s comments “horrible,” according to The Hill.

After referring to Trump as “DumbDumb” in a fundraising email, Slayton told the Wall Street Journal that he wouldn’t back down from the remark.

“I didn’t mean that to be public but obviously I stand behind it,” he said. “Look, this is a great country. Guys who are not that smart can get rich, it’s wonderful. But Donald Trump is not going to be president of the United States ever, period, end of story.”

On Saturday, Trump took the opportunity to attack Walker’s record in Wisconsin.

“Wisconsin is doing terribly. It’s in turmoil,” he said during a speech at Oskaloosa High School, according to CNN. “The roads are a disaster because they don’t have money to rebuild them.”

Trump also asked his supporters to help him surpass Walker, who is polling well in Iowa.

“I hear the only person beating me in Iowa is Scott Walker,” he said, according to The Hill. “I can’t believe I’m in second place. Folks, will you please put me in first place so I feel better?”
