GOP frontrunner Donald Trump said he thinks the Republican Party establishment is against him but is getting behind him as opposed to GOP presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“I think the establishment actually is against me, but really coming on line because they see me as opposed to Cruz, who is a nasty guy who can’t get along with anybody,” Trump stated during an interview on CNN. “At a certain point you’ve got to make deals.”

Trump touted his ability as a deal maker in the interview on Monday.

“Ted cannot get along with anybody,” Trump said, adding that he now thinks Cruz is a “nasty person.”

“We can’t have a guy who stands in the middle of the Senate floor, and every other senator thinks he’s a whack job.” Trump told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “You have to make deals. You have to get along. That’s the purpose of what our founders created.”
