Cruz Calls on Trump to Have NYT Release Audio of Off-the-Record Chat

Ted Cruz quickly pounced this afternoon on reports that Donald Trump softened his immigration position in an off-the-record conversation with The New York Times.

A report from BuzzFeed today says that in that off-the-record talk, Trump said his hard stance on immigration was a starting point from which he could negotiate, not his firm belief.

And since immigration is an issue Trump has been making a big deal over, Cruz jumped:

“I call on Donald: ask the New York Times to release the tape. And do so today, before the Super Tuesday primary.”

And if it’s untrue, Cruz added, then Trump “deserves to have this cleared up.”
