Trump makes fun of Rick Perry's glasses and reads Lindsey Graham's phone number to the crowd.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lashed out at his rivals and sounded off on a range of topics during a campaign stop in Bluffton, South Carolina, on Tuesday.

During the event, Trump responded to having been called a "jackass" by GOP presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham a day earlier by giving out what he said was Graham's phone number. He urged his audience to call Graham.

Graham's campaign manager responded by saying on Twitter that Trump "continues to show hourly that he is ill-prepared to be commander in chief." 

And Graham seemed to wryly acknowledge the comment on his own Twitter account:

Here are a handful of Trump's colorful one-liners from the event:

On China:
"We give state dinners to the heads of China. I say, 'why are you doing state dinners for them? They're ripping us left and right. Just take them to McDonald's and go back to the negotiating table.'"

On GOP presidential candidate and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry:
"He put glasses on so people will think he's smart. It just doesn't work."

On GOP presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham:
"What a stiff," "a total lightweight," and "this idiot."

On politicians in general:
"They run and they run and they win and sometimes they lose. ... Most of them don't know what they're doing. They just keep running. It's like, you wind them up and they run for office."

On Twitter:
"It's like owning a newspaper without the losses."

On the military:
"I will build a military that's so strong that we'll never have to use it. Because they're gonna say, 'we're not messing with that guy and we're not messing with that country.'"
