Did Donald Trump Insult Iowa Voters In Retweet?

Donald Trump on Thursday retweeted what seemed to be an insult to Iowa voters just hours after a Quinnipiac poll came out stating that Ben Carson was leading Trump 28% to 20% in Iowa.

The tweet was sent by @mygreenhippo and read “#BenCarson is now leading in the #polls in #Iowa. Too much #Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain?”

Trump blames an intern for the retweet.

@MyGreenHippo tweeted Thursday night that he had no intention on insulting Iowa voters.
