Donald Trump Goes After Ted Cruz, Accuses Him of 'Fraud' in Iowa
During Monday’s caucus, Cruz put out a release that Ben Carson was quitting the race. Trump tweeted on Wednesday morning many people voted for Cruz over Carson because of what the billionaire calls “fraud.”
Ted Cruz didn't win Iowa, he stole it. That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated. Bad!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
During primetime of the Iowa Caucus, Cruz put out a release that @RealBenCarson was quitting the race, and to caucus (or vote) for Cruz.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
Many people voted for Cruz over Carson because of this Cruz fraud. Also, Cruz sent out a VOTER VIOLATION certificate to thousands of voters.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
The Voter Violation certificate gave poor marks to the unsuspecting voter(grade of F) and told them to clear it up by voting for Cruz. Fraud— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
And finally, Cruz strongly told thousands of caucusgoers (voters) that Trump was strongly in favor of ObamaCare and "choice" - a total lie!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
Based on the fraud committed by Senator Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 3, 2016
Cruz has apologized for the press release saying a staff member made a mistake and claimed that the member saw a CNN report that Carson was dropping out. CNN says they “had not characterized Carson’s actions that way.”
Trump is also feuding with former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu.
The 76-year-old told The New York Times: "I think Trump's loss will remind people that the guy has a history of losses. There is no longer Trump Vodka, Trump Fragrances [and] three magazines that Mr. Trump put his name on."
Needless to say, Trump wasted no time responding. He told Good Morning America: "I have no history of losses. I have made millions and billions of dollars after starting off with very little."
He added: "I built an amazing company. I have a company that is worth many, many billions and everyone knows it."
