Donald Trump and CNN's Chris Cuomo locked horns Wednesday morning over the network's coverage of his book release press conference on Tuesday, with the GOP front-runner complaining that another CNN journalist did not adequately cover the scale of the crowd that turned out.

"You know, I'm getting the biggest crowds by far," Trump told Cuomo on the network's "New Day" morning program. "Yesterday, other than Sara Murray, didn't report it very well, because she never flips the cameras to show the lines. I think she's absolutely terrible, your reporter. We had a line that went down to Park Avenue from Trump Tower."

But, he continued, if you listen to Murray, "you would think there's three people."

Cuomo argued back that that was not the way the event was covered, but "that's the way you took it."

"She's unemotional as a person or not a very good reporter," Trump argued.

He also complained that the results of a Florida Decides poll that put him at 37 percent wasn't reported on CNN, but Cuomo said he didn't mention the poll because "our people in house" didn't like its methodology.

"If somebody else were leading I guarantee you'd be using it," Trump shot back.

The talk moved away from Murray for a bit while the two discussed other topics, and then returned to Murray when Cuomo asked Trump how he plans to achieve his campaign promises.

Cuomo, though, defended Murray and reminded Trump he was "nice to her" when he saw her at the book signing.

"So what, she didn't show the lines," he told Trump. "People know how many people were there. You tell everybody."

"I don't know if she's incompetent or she doesn't like me," Trump told him. "Maybe she's given instructions up above. Who knows. I don't really care."

But he told Cuomo that he's sure he'd defend Murray later, and that "she'll defend herself in a timid way."

Cuomo later took to Twitter to laud Murray in a series of Tweets, including:
