It didn't take long for Donald Trump to fire back at Ben Carson, after the #2 man in the GOP polls questioned Trump's belief in God. Trump joined CNN's New Day earlier and really hammered Carson, as a man who never mentioned his faith until very recently and he even wondered if Carson was really a good doctor.

He is a man of faith, everybody knows that,” host Chris Cuomo began. “It’s a cornerstone of his existence and certainly his motivation to run.”

“Well I don’t know that,” Trump responded. “I had not heard that. I have known of Ben Carson for a long time and never heard faith was a big thing until just recently when he started running. So I don’t know about Ben Carson’s faith.”

“He’s a Seventh-Day Adventist!” Cuomo protested.

“All of a sudden he becomes the great religious figure. I don’t think he’s a great religious figure. I saw him yesterday quoting on humility, and it looked like he memorized it two minutes before he made the quote. So don’t tell me about Ben Carson,” Trump responded.

“Go back to look at his past,” he continued. “Go back to look at his views on abortion and see where he stands. You talk about abortion, go back to look at his views on abortion. Now all of a sudden he gets on very low key– frankly, he makes [Jeb Bush] look like the Energizer Bunny.

Lock and load. Grab the popcorn, pop open a beer and enjoy the upcoming show.

This feud has just begun.
