US President Donald Trump yesterday escalated his feud with the husband of White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway, calling him "a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!"

Mr Trump's broadside on Twitter came as George Conway, a conservative lawyer and frequent critic of the president, publicly questioned his mental health.

"George Conway, often referred to as Mr Kellyanne Conway by those who know him, is VERY jealous of his wife's success & angry that I, with her help, didn't give him the job he so desperately wanted," Mr Trump wrote.

"I barely know him but just take a look, a stone cold LOSER & husband from hell!"

Mr Conway said that he had had a number of notable interactions with Mr Trump

since he had become president.

Mr Trump's tweet referred to a Justice Department job for which Mr Conway was under consideration in 2017.

Mr Conway said he opted against working at the Justice Department after Mr Trump offered him a position heading the civil division because he watched Mr Trump attack the department's leaders and fire FBI director James Comey.
