The Club for Growth Tuesday slammed Republican front-runner Donald Trump's attacks on the organization for its political ads against him — accusing the billionaire of "whining."
"Tough guy Donald Trump starts whining when his liberal record is revealed," said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. "Trump has advocated higher taxes numerous times over many years, just like he's advocated for universal health care, the Wall Street bailout, and expanded government powers to take private property.
"Trump's own statements prove that our ads are accurate. They will continue to run.
"We suggest that Donald grow up, stop whining, and try to defend his liberal record," McIntosh said.
The Washington-based group began a $1 million ad blitz last week touting Trump as the "worst Republican"
among the 15 contenders for the nomination and portraying him as too liberal on many issues.
Trump's attorney, Alan Garten, threatened to sue the group in a letter released later Tuesday, charging that the ads are based on a quote from an article published 15 years ago.
"We will commence a multi-million dollar lawsuit unless Club for Growth stops running the ads and agrees to not spread inaccurate information in future," Garten said in the letter
