President Donald Trump lashed out Republican critics of his administration during a wide-ranging interview with the conservative Daily Caller website published Tuesday.

Trump singled out Republican political strategists Matthew Dowd and Ana Navarro for criticizing his administration.

"You look at these panels of people, the worst are the panels. You look at this guy Dowd on ABC, I don’t even know who the hell he is," Trump said, though he later admitted Dowd had visited him in the Oval Office.

Dowd was the chief strategist for President George W. Bush's 2004 re-election campaign.

“He’s just horrendous, he’s supposed to be a Republican," Trump added.

Trump then attacked the Nicaraguan-born Navarro.

“Ana Navarro, she’s sick. I mean, she’s sick," he repeated.

"The hatred," he complained.

Navarro shrugged of Trump's criticism, saying it was an honor.
