Donald Trump took a shot at Tim Pawlenty this week, Politico reports.

On “Fox and Friends,” Trump wondered if the former Minnesota governor has what it takes to survive in the rough and tumble world of presidential campaigns:

“The problem with Pawlenty, he’s trying to be a tough guy. He’s trying to be a tough guy, but he’s not. You know, you can’t be something that you’re not.”

    Pawlenty doesnt have presidential “fire in the belly.” He has heartburn

    Pawlenty is the ultimate “chickenhawk” in every respect. That particular brand of courage is frightening when projected onto a presidential persona. I think we all prefer the real deal rather than a fabricated personality made for presidential politics.
