Rick Perry Hits Back at Donald Trump: I'm The Full Package

During Donald Trump's presidential campaign announcement, he took a dig at former Texas Gov. Rick Perry's campaign announcement that was made in a blistering hot airplane hangar, saying some candidates "didn't know the air conditioner didn't work."

Perry responded on Fox News Channel's "Your World with Neil Cavuto" by saying "I'll let the Donald do what the Donald does. But we're going to be focused on the real issues that Americans care about, and they care about how we get this country back working."

Perry also added that while Trump may be a business mogul, Perry is the "full package." Perry shared his experience during his 14 years as governor of Texas by saying "When you look at the state of Texas, it's somewhere around the size economically of either Canada or Australia. What we did over the course of those last 14 years is not small potatoes."

He stated that Texas created 1.5 million jobs in the middle of the recession by putting sound tax and regulatory policies in place. Perry added "Nobody's going to be able to stand on the stage and say, 'You know what, all of that in the same package and he's also worn the uniform of the country.”
