Trump Tears Into ‘Very Nasty’ Cruz: ‘Nobody Likes Him Once They Get to Know Him’
Donald Trump continued trashing Ted Cruz on ABC’s This Week this morning, calling him a “very nasty” and dishonest person.
“He’s a nasty guy,” Trump told George Stephanopoulos. “Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him anywhere once they get to know him. He’s got an edge that’s not good.”
He repeatedly accused Cruz of hypocrisy for wanting to “look like Robin Hood” and defend Americans from corporate Americans when he gets loans from places like Goldman Sachs. And if you thought Trump was done going after Cruz on “New York values,” not even close.
He called it a “disgrace” and repeatedly invoked 9/11 first responders.
Trump also went after Cruz for being the “biggest advocate” for getting Chief Justice John Roberts appointed to the Supreme Court. And considering that plenty of conservatives are outraged at Roberts for upholding Obamacare, Trump found it interesting Cruz championed a justice who “absolutely set the conservative movement back.”
Stephanopoulos pressed Trump on concerns conservatives have about him, but Trump insisted he’ll “appoint judges that will be good.”
And then, just to top all this off, Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he’s so concerned about Cruz’s citizenship status, why doesn’t he just file the lawsuit himself? Trump did not exactly discount the idea, saying he’d be doing the public “a big favor” because “when I file suits, I file real suits.”
