GOP frontrunner Donald Trump today described Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), as “the man from Canada,” adding that “he can’t speak the truth.”
Trump also said that Cruz is falling in the polls, adding, “He’s nervous. He’s concerned and he should be.”
“He can’t speak the truth…the man from Canada,” Trump said about Cruz during his campaign rally in Farmington, New Hampshire on Monday. “The Canadian…he could run right now for Prime Minister of Canada.”
Trump challenged, “He’s born in Canada, on Canadian soil…I mean come on!”
He said if Cruz becomes the Republican nominee, “The Democrats are going to sue,” adding, “How do you approve somebody who can’t get on the ballot?”
“It’s like a cloud on [a property] title in real estate,” Trump said about the question of whether or not Cruz is a natural born citizen.
Cruz was born in Canada, but his mother was a U.S. citizen. Trump raised the issue of whether or not that qualifies him to be president in an earlier interview with The Washington Post.
“So, I mention this and then of course he comes out with his loans…he’s Mr. Robin Hood,” Trump jabbed, referencing a recent report by the New York Times about Cruz allegedly not disclosing a loan from Goldman Sachs.
“Nobody is giving me anything,” Trump said about loans and donors to fund his campaign. “Those companies that are making these great deals…they’re represented by people that gave a lot of money to Hillary and Jeb and Ted and all of them.”
“My whole life has been taking,” Trump said of his career as a businessman and real estate developer. But now, he said, he is going to take and be greedy for the United States of America.
Trump alleged that Cruz supported amnesty in the past and that politicians wouldn’t know where to start with building a wall on the southern border, as Trump has promised to do if he is elected President of the United States.
“He’s falling. He’s nervous. He’s concerned and he should be,” Trump challenged.
