    Republican presidential candidate, businessman Donald Trump faces reporters during a news conference before a scheduled campaign rally, Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2015, in Worcester, Mass.

    Donald Trump and John Kasich ended up in a Twitter fight Thursday after a super PAC backing the Ohio governor was launching an ad blitz against the billionaire Republican candidate, NBC News reported.

    Pro-Kasich New Day for America PAC is planning to air radio, TV, mail and online ads in New Hampshire, where Trump has a wide lead.

    The line of attack is one that hasn't yet been tried on Trump: Arguing he's inexperienced and unsuited for the demands of the White House. According to Politico, the group's first ad invokes the Paris attacks and ties Trump to President Obama, declaring, "On-the-job training for president does not work." The ads are sure to be hard-hitting since the man behind them, Fred Davis, is known for effective political spots.

    Trump unleaded a dozen tweets dismissing Kasich because of his standing in the polls.

    Trump’s general counsel also threatened to sue the Kasich campaign and New Day over the ads.
