Trump fired back on Fox and Friends Wednesday morning saying she is not "off to a good start" if she wants to be considered his potential running mate.

"Well, considering I'm leading in the polls by a lot, I wouldn't say she's off to a good start," Trump said. "Whoever I pick is also going to be very strong on illegal immigration."

He added: "She's very weak on illegal immigration. I feel very strongly about immigration. She doesn't."

In her speech, Haley said: "No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country."

Haley's parents are immigrants from India and conservative commentator Ann Coulter blasted her, tweeting:

He also added: "All the rhetoric you hear about our enemies getting stronger and America getting weaker. The United States of America is the most powerful nation on earth. Period. It's not even close."

He never mentioned Trump by name but used the final State of the Union speech of his presidency to blast the Republican frontrunner's call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S.

Trump shrugged it off, tweeting:
