The Democratic candidate in the Florida governor's race has responded after US President Donald Trump labeled him a “stone cold thief,” by saying you should “never wrestle with a pig.”
The sparring match between Trump and Andrew Gillum entered a new round on Monday, when the president called the candidate a “stone cold thief” in an interview with Fox News' Laura Ingraham.
Trump provided no evidence when he called Gillum a “thief.” However, the Democrat’s administration is the subject of an FBI corruption investigation, and Gillum also came under fire after it was revealed that he accepted tickets to the Broadway musical “Hamilton” from an undercover FBI agent who he thought was a local developer.
But that wasn't the first time Trump hit out at Gillum. In August, he called the candidate “a failed socialist mayor” who has “allowed crime and many other problems to flourish in his city.”
