    In this Oct. 10, 2008, file photo, former Secretary of State Colin Powell is seen in Washington. Powell's leaked email on Donald Trump led Trump to say he "was never a fan."

    Donald Trump responded on Twitter to Colin Powell's leaked emails calling him a "national disgrace," dismissing the criticism. 

    "I was never a fan of Colin Powell after his weak understanding of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq = disaster. We can do much better!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

    In one email, the former secretary of state called Trump a "national disgrace" and "international pariah" — adding that the GOP presidential contender was "in the process of destroying himself, no need for Dems to attack him."
