Could the Ted Cruz and Donald Trump feud soon be playing out in court?
The Republican Presidential frontrunner said he will file a lawsuit challenging the Texas Senator’s constitutional qualification to be in the race for President–if Cruz doesn’t “take down his false ads and retract his lies.”
In that same statement, Trump went on to say “The RNC should intervene and if they don’t they are in default of their pledge to me.”
“Donald Trump gave checks to Hillary Clinton, to Chuck Schumer, to Harry Reid, to Andrew Cuomo” Cruz said during a campaign stop in South Carolina Monday, emphasizing the support he said Trump provided for then-President Jimmy Carter in the 1980 race against Ronald Reagan.
Cruz also took aim at Trump over who he might nominate for the U.S. Supreme Court.
“A vote for Donald Trump is a vote to write the Second Amendment out of the Bill of Rights” Cruz said.
Earlier, speaking in South Carolina, Trump again took aim at his rival.
“This guy… Ted Cruz is the most dishonest guy I think I’ve ever met in politics” Trump said, adding ” I think he’s an unstable person… I really do. He just said Donald Trump doesn’t like the Second Amendment–the Second Amendment is my whole thing.”
Trump first began suggesting last week he could file a lawsuit over Cruz candidacy, seeking to have him disqualified from the race because he was born in Canada. Cruz has maintained he is eligible to be in the Presidential Race because his mother is an American citizen–making him an American at birth.
