President Trump has angrily tweeted about the husband of one of his advisers for two days in a row.

Trump on Wednesday tweeted that George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, is "very jealous of his wife's success" and "angry" he wasn't given a job "he so desperately wanted." Trump also called Conway a "stone cold loser" and a "husband from hell!"

George Conway is a vocal Trump critic and has recently been suggesting the president's mental state is a serious cause for concern and likely indicative of a personality disorder. Trump had been advised to ignore Conway's tweeting, reports AP's Jonathan Lemire, but the president ignored that advice on Tuesday, lashing out at Conway by calling him a "total loser!"

This prompted Conway to speak with The Washington Post later in the day, detailing a number of interactions he's had with the president and saying Trump offered him a job at the Justice Department which he turned down. The Post also reported that Kellyanne Conway "went on a lengthy rant about her husband" at an event last month, saying "she and the president think her husband is jealous of her."

Conway responded to Trump's latest tweet on Wednesday morning by writing, "You seem determined to prove my point. Good for you! #NarcissisticPersonalityDisorder." Brendan Morrow
