Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump didn’t like the Democratic Convention at all. It seems to have made him angry.
Point of view
I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spinRepublican presidential nominee
Speaking at a campaign rally in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday, Trump expressed his fury at some of those who had taken to the stage in Philadelphia.
“I wanted to hit a couple of the speakers so hard,” he said.
“I would’ve hit them…I was gonna hit them. I was all set and then I got a call from a highly respected governor. ‘How is it going Donald?’ I said: ‘Well, it is going good but they are really saying bad things about me. I’m gonna hit them so hard. I was going to hit one guy in particular – a very little guy – I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin. He wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”
Trump’s campaign would not reveal who he was referring to as the ‘very little guy’.
However US media has speculated that the Republican nominee could have been taking a shot at former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who spoke at the Democratic Convention to endorse Hillary Clinton and branded Trump a ‘dangerous demagogue’.
The media reports said Bloomberg stands 5 foot-8 inches tall.
Trump, a 70-year-old billionaire businessman and former reality TV star, later denounced Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton.
Taking to social media immediately after her acceptance speech at the Convention, Trump blasted his rival in a series of Tweets.

Trump also took to Facebook to denounce Clinton’s speech as “an insulting collection of clichés and recycled rhetoric”.
