Another chapter was written Monday in the ongoing feud between Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and the Ricketts family, owners of the Chicago Cubs.

Trump didn't take too kindly to the family contributing funds to a political action committee that opposed the hopeful presidential candidate.

"Well, it means that I'll start spending on them," Trump told The Washington Post. "I'll start taking ads telling them all what a rotten job they're doing with the Chicago Cubs. I mean, they are spending on me.

"I'll start doing ads about their baseball team. That it's not properly run or that they haven't done a good job in the brokerage business lately."

Marlene Ricketts was found to have donated $3-million in February to Our Principles PAC, a group committed to campaigns against Trump, explaining the reason for the presidential hopeful's outburst.

But, considering the Cubs are World Series favorites heading into the upcoming season, Trump's assessment that the club is "not properly run" may be a bit of a stretch.
