Cruz: Trump is Pro-Abortion, Pro-Gay, Pro-Cuomo
For the first time on the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz [discussed] Donald Trump on Saturday, accusing him of not being a conservative and for lacking the temperament and judgment befitting the White House.
“Donald’s record does not match what he says as a candidate,” the Texas senator said to reporters in Fort Mill, S.C., The Washington Post reports.
“It seems Donald has a lot of nervous energy,” he added. “For whatever reason, Donald doesn’t react well when he’s going down in the polls.”
Cruz noted Thursday’s poll by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal showing that he would beat Trump by eight points in a hypothetical contest, though Trump held a double-digit lead overall.
“I imagine it pulled him out of bed this morning and sent him tweeting and tweeting and tweeting,” Cruz said, referring to a bevy of negative Twitter posts from the developer.
