Cliff Asness criticized Donald Trump on Friday morning for the Republican presidential contender's complaints about news coverage.

Asness, co-founder and managing principal of investment firm AQR Capital Management, quoted Trump's tweet and characterized it as "whining." Asness' firm has more than $136 billion under management.

The GOP front-runner originally tweeted last Friday, slamming Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly for the way that she "totally misrepresents [his] words and positions."

Asness has been vocal throughout the campaign season and has been particularly critical of Sen. Bernie Sanders and Trump.
