Trump: Boehner’s Cruz Is ‘Lucifer’ Comments Are ‘Standard,’ ‘Everybody Dislikes’ Cruz, ‘You Can’t Have That’

During an interview broadcast on Friday’s “Fox & Friends” on the Fox News Channel, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump argued that former House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-OH) remarks referring to Republican presidential candidate Texas Senator Ted Cruz as “Lucifer” were “standard” because “Everybody dislikes” Cruz, “And you can’t have that.”

Trump said, “I think it’s standard, frankly. Everybody dislikes him. There’s something about him nobody likes, and he can’t work with anybody. Think of him, he’s a United States senator. He’s working with all of these senators, and he’s got virtually no endorsements. And the one he most respects in the Senate is, as you know, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL). And Senator Sessions endorsed me four weeks ago. And he’s got no support. He’s got — nobody likes him. And you can’t have that.”
