The ‘battle’ between Republican candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump gets more and more intense, the two being credited with the biggest chances of winning the GOP nomination for the White House. Like expected, this means that both of them take every chance they have to attack each other.
The Texas Senator was the last one to attack now, calling Donald Trump a false conservative and even questioning his temperament and judgement, says The Washington Post.
Did Mr. Trump change that much?
Considering this, it can be said that Ted Cruz‘s remarks can open a new front between the two. “Donald’s record does not match what he says as a candidate,” he told reporters in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
“It seems Donald has a lot of nervous energy. For whatever reason Donald doesn’t react well when he’s going down in the polls,” Ted Cruz said.
From a certain point of view, Cruz’s attacks can be considered at least weird, since he is well known for praising Donald Trump for months, before the race for the GOP nomination got tighter.
Ted Cruz’s birthplace, the eternal problem
Still, everything changed after this week’s debate, when Trump basically insisted on talking about Ted Cruz‘s birthplace and questioned his ability to be president. Even more, he kept talking about this topic on Saturday morning, through a series of tweets, claiming that additional lawsuits will investigate this issue.
As for Ted Cruz‘s point of view, he pointed out that a WSJ/NBC News poll sees him as the winner in an eventual two-man race with Trump.
“And I imagine it pulled him out of bed this morning and sent him tweeting and tweeting and tweeting. I think in terms of a commander-in-chief, we ought to have someone who isn’t springing out of bed to tweet in a frantic response to the latest polls,” Cruz said.
