Billionaire businessman and Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump recently responded to attacks he has received from a supposedly allied group.

Speaking at an event in Nashville, Tennessee, Trump called out the elite GOP establishment organization Club for Growth, which has been critical of some of Trump’s tax proposals.

“They’re a pack of thieves,” Trump told a Breitbart News reporter, adding “They came to my office looking for money. I turned them down. That’s why they’re after me.”

The Club for Growth took issue with Trump’s plans to penalize the Ford Motor Company for transferring a manufacturing plant to Mexico instead of Tennessee, as originally intended.

“Donald Trump’s threat to impose new taxes on U.S. car companies will hurt the American economy and cost more American jobs,” stated David McIntosh, president of the Club for Growth.
