Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Thursday railed against an editorial in the Wall Street Journal that was critical of his chances of winning the party’s nomination, tweeting “nobody cares” what the newspaper writes in its editorials.

The Journal calculated the number of delegates each of the Republican candidates had won so far. Acknowledging that Trump was still the frontrunner, the editorial board wrote that it wouldn’t be easy to clinch the nomination “given the continuing resistance to his candidacy by so many Republicans.”

“They should want this nomination fight to continue to see if Mr. Trump can begin to act like a President, if one of the other two can catch fire, and above all to decide who can prevent another progressive-left Presidency,” the board wrote.

Here was Trump’s reaction on Twitter:

    Trump has succeeded by getting maybe 35-40% of a weak, divided GOP primary. Those voters are primarily white, angry men with HS diplomas who don’t look past the TV character…When it comes to the general election, he will be facing an electorate that is unlike the primary voters. His shtick and illiterate responses, coupled with his racist and bigoted rhetoric will not sit well at all. He will fail in a YUUUGE way. He will go back to being an annoying egotistic, narcissistic billionaire. His voters however, will have nothing but bitterness and regret. I can’t wait for that day.
