Trump’s Twitter Rant Against Iowa’s Bob Vander Plaats

Bob Vander Plaats is an influential Iowa pastor with a network whose support for Rick Santorum in 2012 helped boost Rick to the unexpected victory in Iowa. This time, Vander Plaats has endorsed and is campaigning for Ted Cruz, leading to another of those strange Donald Trump late-night Twitter rants calling Vander Plaats a “phony” and accusing him of — I’m not sure what — asking for free hotel nights from Trump?

Vander Plaats brushed it off.

But is Trump going to do this from the White House for the next four years?
