President Donald Trump warned former Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday morning against using incendiary language when talking about Republicans.

The hosts on Fox And Friends played the now viral clip of Holder saying Democrats should “kick” Republicans when they go low.

“When Michelle says when they go low we go high. No. No. When they go low we kick ’em. That is what this new Democratic Party is about.”

Steve Doocy asked the president, “After he said we’ll kick ’em, the whole room started clapping and cheering. What does that say to you about the tenor of politics?”

Trump said bluntly, “He better be careful what he is wishing for. He better be careful for what he is wishing for. That is a disgusting statement for him to make.”

The president continued, leveling a litany of criticisms against Holder:

“They have to be careful with the rhetoric because it is very dangerous what Holder says. Holder was held in contempt by Congress. Holder went after Christians. He went after our great evangelicals. He went after the Tea Party people. You know that. IRS just settled that case. Holder, he has got some problems.”


In conclusion, Trump said if Holder ran for president he would lose. “I don’t see him running,” Trump said. “If he did run I think he would get gobbled up before he ever gets to the election. I think the primaries would gobble him up.”
