"Trump is indeed furious this morning, particularly about Mehmet Oz, and is blaming everyone who advised him to back Oz -- including his wife, describing it as not her best decision, according to people close to him," Maggie Haberman wrote.
"There are people pushing Trump to reschedule his announcement next week, and several Rs have texted asking whether he will, but it's risky and would be acknowledging he's wounded by yesterday, something that some of his advisers insist is not the case," she added.
