Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump Friday doubled down on his attacks on rival Ben Carson, accusing the retired pediatric neurosurgeon of trying to prove his violent youth "in order to have credibility."

"He is he trying to prove that he did it in order to have credibility," Trump said in an interview with Bill O'Reilly on Fox News, of Carson's story that he tried to hit his mother with a hammer when he was a young teenager. "There is something very strange here. Something very strange is going on."

In his 1996 memoir, "Gifted Hands," Carson said that some of his violent outbursts as a youth included attacking his mother and trying to stab a friend.

"I don't think it's small ball if you have somebody who admits that he suffers from pathological disease," Trump told O'Reilly. "You don't get better. You don't get better. You know what makes you better? Pills make you better."

"They talk about temperament," he continued. "Do you think that's the right temperament to be president? I don't think so."
