OSKALOOSA, Iowa -- Donald Trump has made another remark at a campaign event in Oskaloosa, Iowa. He says it's open attack season, after a move by one of Walker's supporters.

"I read this horrible statement on his fundraiser about Trump, and I say 'oh finally, I can attack him. Finally," said Trump.

Trump, making the comments after the Wall Street Journal reports a top Walker fundraiser called the billionaire a 'dumb dumb.'

In an invitation for a Walker event, the fundraiser wrote Trump would be a "total and complete disaster for the country."

"I've been nice to Scott Walker, he's a nice guy. He came up to my office three or four months ago, presented me with a plaque because I helped him with his election.  I like that he was fighting.  I didn't know what the hell he was doing but he was fighting and I like a fighter," said Trump.

The friendship appears to be over.

Saturday, July 25th the New York Times says Trump attacked Walker as a leader, saying Wisconsin is in turmoil.

Trump told the crowd Wisconsin's roads, schools and hospitals are a "disaster."

Walker previously has said he will stay out of verbal battles with his republican competitors. He made an exception for Trump, after the real estate mogul's controversial comments about U.S. Senator, and former Vietnam POW, John McCain.

"He's not a war hero, he's a war hero because he got captured, I like people that weren't captured," said Trump.

"When someone goes personal and attacks a personal hero, you may agree or disagree with some of his politics. John McCain is an American hero and I will defend him and any other American who has been a POW," said Walker.

Currently, Walker leads Trump in Iowa polls.

"He's the only guy ahead of me, I can't believe I'm in 2nd. I'm finally in 2nd place in Iowa, but he's ahead of me and folks, can you please put me in 1st place so I can feel better?" said Trump.

FOX6 News reached out to Governor Walker's office for comment, as of Saturday, he has not responded to Trump's remarks.

        Scott Walker is an flipping idiot. So if he gets elected then our standards have truly dropped. He has not done anything for our education (probably because that is nothe important to him because he never completed school himself). He has lost more jobs then has been created. And why on earth would he not increase minimum wage. HELLO so maybe he should try living on minimum wage for a few years and see how much he would like it.

        @ Colleen, typical liberal statement, “he should try living on minimum wage a few years” minimum wage was never meant to be a living wage!

    Trump wants walkers votes, and walker wants trumps money! Maybe both of these clowns without makeup should run on the same ticket!!

    I thought Scott Walker didn’t like the union’s but yet he received a donation of $100,000.00 on May 27, 2012 and $9,000.00 on October 29, 2014 from Richard Pieper of Pieper Electric – Union Electrical Contractor. May be this should be tweeted to Donald.

    Not surprising that they didn’t hear back from S. Walker. He has to make sure that his response will be response will be politically correct and not offend any of his backers.
