Cruz Confronts Trump Supporters in Indiana: ‘He Is Playing You for a Chump’

CruzWhile campaigning in Indiana Monday afternoon, Sen. Ted Cruz confronted a throng of Trump supporters, enduring taunts of “Lyin’Ted” and challenging them to name a single thing they liked about the GOP frontrunner.

“You are the problem,” a Trump supporter repeated, while demanding that the Texas senator drop out of the race. “We don’t want you!”

Cruz gamely engaged his opposition’s supporters, by cycling through his usual talking points against Trump. He mentioned the real estate tycoon’s past allegiance with establishment Democrats and his dubious record of hiring outside the country. Meanwhile, Cruz touted his own defense of the Second Amendment and record of unalloyed conservatism.

“With all respect, Donald Trump is deceiving you. He is playing you for a chump,” Cruz said. Although it was to little avail.
