Fightin’ Words: Trump Says He’ll Go To War With Cruz

Fightin’ Words: Trump Says He’ll Go To War With Cruz

2016 GOP Presidential hopeful and real estate mogul Donald Trump says he will attack Texas Senator Ted Cruz if Cruz continues to rise in the polls.

According to The Hill:

“Donald Trump said Monday he is capable of turning on Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in their competition for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination.

“If he catches on, I guess we’ll have to go to war,” he told host Joe Kernen on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”

“We’ll see what happens but so far we haven’t,” Trump continued. “He’s been very supportive [and] we have a lot of the same ideas.
“Well, he’s been very nice and supportive of everything I’ve said, more than anybody else.”

Cruz and Trump have typically enjoyed a warm relationship since launching their respective Oval Office bids earlier this year. The pair has expressed mutual admiration over their similar policies on border security and illegal immigration.”

  1. It’s too bad Trump feels he needs to attack fellow Republicans, instead of staying on target with issues of the American people, and exposing the Democrats and Rino’s.

  2. Trump was a prolific whoremonger before he was married and then became a three time adulterer in his three marriages.. Trump used eminent domain laws to take other people’s property away them to build parking garages for his own business. Now those businesses in Atlantic City are not doing well . Trump has all the women he ever wanted , all the money he wanted and now he just wants the Power. Trump would just be another tyrant .

    • Precisely! Well said. Moreover, Trump was a big supporter of the Clintons until recently, and a supporter of killing Americans in the womb, as well. Suddenly, he’s a conservative, just because he has the same position that Ted Cruz has always had on illegal immigration and national security. His supporters are reactionaries that follow the cheering crowd. Once they vet the candidate they’ll find that Ted Cruz has all of Trump’s positives and none of his negatives.

        • Cruz would be my second choice. The 1st is Mike Huckabee. MIKE HUCKABEE AND THE FAIR TAX 2016 !!! Cruz 2024 . Nobody comes close to his wisdom and, poise. Huckabee also is the only candidate that has the experience of beating the Clinton machine, three times. Only The Fair Tax eliminates the IRS , NOT the Flat tax.

          • I like Huckabee, as well. He would be a great President, if given the chance. Unfortunately, at this time, it looks as though he will not be given the chance. If things change, I will reconsider. It is important that the Republican is one who can win the election.

          • Huckabee was nowhere on the radar back in 2008 when he won the Iowa primary. I thought he should have run in 2012. The polls have proven in the past that they are not the best indicator of who will win the primaries. It all really does not start to mean anything until February. I think America would be very fortunate if we had Mike Huckabee as our President. As I said before , he reminds me the most of Ronald Reagan than any other candidate. He is a very positive optimistic true conservative with the same kind of rye sense of humor as Reagan. America needs that sometimes to help get us through these hard times.

      • I just have a gut feeling about Trump. I can’t get past the feeling that he is a plant by the democrat party. Besides that, we already have a president in the White House who can’t take criticism, and is extremely egotistical. It just is a concern in the back of my mind. I pray that I’m wrong.

      • Cruz would be my second choice. The 1st is Mike Huckabee. MIKE HUCKABEE AND THE FAIR TAX 2016 !!! Cruz 2024 . Nobody comes close to his wisdom and, poise. Huckabee also is the only candidate that has the experience of beating the Clinton machine, three times. Only The Fair Tax eliminates the IRS , NOT the Flat tax.

    • When did you ppl get this dumb? was it before or after you turn in to liberal democratic? And what are you worried about what Trump did before he married that’s none of your business!oh yes you ppl sound like a bunch if Bernie sanders jokers to me/

      • Trump is not a true conservative. He is a pandering Chameleon. As others have stated, Trump was pro-abortion and a strong Clinton supporter not that long ago. He is a great pretender. Don’t drink his cool aid.

    • I like Cruz a lot and if he is the nominee I will be pleased to vote for him. My one concern is most of the Senate hate him and openly says so. He may be their boss if he becomes President but they can vote against him. After all they are all RINOS. Trump would Reign them in. I’d love to see Trump-Cruz ticket. He is not the only anti-establishment as Trump is too. In fact since Trump hasn’t served in Washington, he is the only one that is a complete outsider with the exception of Carson.

        • You’ll never see Trump even bother to sit in the White House, much less play second fiddle. He’s doing this all to raise his brand value (the famous Trump brand). He has no intention of actually serving as a mere politician; no way in a million years.

        • I could support Trump/Cruz. We need the business and negotiating skills that Trump has. He has the ability to get things done and he does what he says he will do.

        • Carson can’t even put two cogent words together, for God’s sake. Hillary would eat his lunch in a debate.

      • Here’s the syllogism that Ted Cruz’s strategist laid out at the very beginning:

        A. Washington DC hates Ted Cruz
        B. Americans hate Washington D.C.
        Conclusion: That ain’t bad for Cruz.

      • THEY DON’T LIKE HIM BECAUSE HE TELLS THE TRUTH AND THEY DON’T WANT THE AMERICAN PUBLIC TO KNOW THE TRUTH. I AM VOTING FOR TED CRUZ!!! I HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING HIM FOR TWO YEARS NOW AND I KNOW THAT TED TELLS THE TRUTH, AND HE WILL STAND UP FOR US!!!

        • Do you know what lobbyist and/or special interest groups are funding Cruz’s campaign? Most politicians tell the truth (for voters) until they get into office, then sh** hits the fan. Trump is funding his own campaign and is beholden to NOBODY and is not a politician which assures me that what he stands for is what I stand for. Do I like his personality – not really, but this is an election for POTUS not a personality contest. Think about it.

          • AS A MATTER OF FACT, I DO, I SAW HIS RECORDS AND I KNOW THAT 17% OF HIS DONATIONS COME FROM PRIVATE BUSINESSES THAT MEANS THAT THE REST COMES FROM CONTRIBUTORS LIKE MYSELF, AND I AM GOOD WITH THAT. TED CRUZ FOR PRESIDENT!!!

          • Fran, where did you see his records and can you say that those records are 100% accurate, even 17% donations from private businesses is too much for me.

          • IF I GIVE YOU THE RECORDS, NEXT YOU WILL WANT THEM NOTARIZED, AN IDIOT LIBERAL LIKE YOU WILL NEVER BE SATISFIED BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO BRAIN!!!

          • Which means you just made that up, you didn’t see ANY records. Hadn’t you noticed, the GOP is turning liberal? When the GOP is out to get Trump out as a candidate, I say that’s pretty sorry. Look, you know nothing about me, but I know you are a person who doesn’t like someone who doesn’t agree with you and that’s liberal kiddo! I never said I didn’t like Cruz, I simply am supporting Trump because he is NOT a politician and is his own man without having any interest groups attached to his campaign. Hey, good luck to you!

      • First of all , Cruz would not be ” Their boss ” the congress is a separate branch. Cruz would be the best on the first ticket and maybe Trump as VP. He would learn and be good for the office after Cruz’s second term. ( Trump won’t play second seat , he’s too much into his image. )

        • I mis-spoke, he wouldn’t be their boss, but they have to work together. Obama may not be the boss but he sure tells them what to do and they fall right in line. They wouldn’t do that for Cruz. You are correct Trump and Cruz have to different leadership styles and Trump wouldn’t accept VP. Like him or not he is a strong leader and that is what we need right now, however, should Cruz be the nominee, I would be fine with it. We have a full year of Obama left and right now I am more concerned what he has up his sleeves. It isn’t going to be pretty. It is going to be a very bumpy year. Hope we all survive.

  3. I love Trump and he continues to do well. I just don’t understand his need to attack and it may cost us a good President. He and Cruz should at all times be working together they are on the same page.

    • Cruz is being smart as a fox; he probably secretly despises Trump, the 4th grade buffoon. But his strategists have surely decided to let Trump be Trump until he burns out (believe me, he will).

      If it came to a debate series against the Hildebeast, the only one in the field that would turn the hag inside out, is Ted Cruz. If Trump tried to debate her seriously (and hard) to her face, she’d remind him that he (Trump) was a good friend to the Clintons until recently. If he tried his usual childish attacks and name-calling on the Hildebeast, the hag will rip out Trump’s windpipe and play his song back to him, in a sharper key.

      Cruz is a lifelong debate champion, and has an I.Q. probably close to double that of Trump. He beat David Dewhurst, our ultra-powerful Lt. Governor here in Texas, to win his senate seat with TEA Party backing in 2012. Ted Cruz has *always* been hated by the political machine, and he uses that hatred wisely…because the American people despise the political machine!

      This man is another Reagan; he’s the only one in the race that can do exactly what Reagan did — go directly to the people and make a clear, reasoned case (not a kindergarten rant with no rationale or policy behind it) and to Hell with whatever the D.C. organized crime machine wants.

      You’re going to see much more of Ted Cruz. But not yet; he’s too smart for that.

      • David, I totally agree with you. Ted Cruz is the only candidate for me. I have been watching him since he was running for the Senate. He knows what he is doing. I think he is staying right where he is at in the polls. The front runner is always the one under attack. He’s letting the others beat themselves up, then he’ll be there to bring the country together just like Reagan did. This country has a GREAT need for healing and a great desire for unity and sanity. He also has a lot of wisdom. We need Ted Cruz!!!

        • Cruz has the smarts but not the poise and wisdom of Mike Huckabee. Mike Huckabee is more like Reagan that any of the candidates. I do not sense any optimism or even a sense of humor from Cruz. Cruz says he believes a flat tax will eliminate the IRS. That is not true. Only the Fair Tax that Mike Huckabee supports, will eliminate The IRS.

      • I like Cruz and yes he is very vocal and stands against all the RINO’s in Congress. However, what has he accomplished with his “fight” against these people? Can anyone name one, just one accomplishment? My observation is, politicians talk but don’t walk the walk. Has he influenced anyone to come over to his side of thinking? If he has, please enlighten me. Cruz is a slick politician, Trump isn’t and is his own man, funded by no one but himself and can’t be bought. Who is funding Cruz and what will it cost him with special interests and lobbyists? Just asking.

    • Trump has ALL the qualifications of an ‘old time’ Circus Carnival BARKER’..Rants, RAVES, Shouts, Fling s his arms, & says WHATEVER he can to get y’all into his PSEUDO TENT..!!

      Ain’t NO WAY Trump comes ANYWHERE close to the grass roots ACCOMPLISHMENTS of Sen, Ted Cruz..NONE !!!! Sen. Cruz in tandem with Dr. Ben Carson ARE the “A-TEAM” to BEGIN the RESTORATION of “WE THE PEOPLES”.. REPUBLIC..!!!!

  4. People aren’t going to stand for the bashing much longer. Leave it up to your supporters to bash the candidates. Go bash Hillary.

      • Yeah!!! At least I’m success to EARN $9767/MONTH .I heard about it last 2 months and I have made such a great cash. It is very beneficial for me and my family.My relatives wondered to see how i settle my Life in few days thank GOD to you for this…You can also make cash.. I’m Loving it!!!! ☻ ▼ ▼ ▼

  5. As far as I’m concerned he made up my mind to support Cruz rather then him…Trumps mouth is starting to make him fall in the polls….

      • Me for one and if you read more comments you’ll see him losing more…He’ll talk his way right out of the nomination…He should stick by Cruz rather then mouth off about him…He’s burning bridges…

        • You still did not show me where he is falling in the polls, This was your comment: .Trumps mouth is starting to make him fall in the polls…. Robert Morzenti please back up your comment. HA Ha you can’t.

          • Keep watching the polls and you’ll see it for yourself…He who laughs last laughs best…so keep on laughing…I like to see losers…

          • I can do that and I see a winner….But you must be so ugly that you post a picture of a dog as being you, you would be afraid to look in the mirror..

            Republican Trump drops 12 percentage points in poll: Reuters/Ipsos

            WASHINGTON | By Alana Wise

            WASHINGTON U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul’s biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

            Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22.

            The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more.

            ADVERTISING

            Following the attacks, Trump told an NBC News reporter that he would support requiring all Muslims within the United States to be registered to a special database, which his critics have likened to the mandatory registration of Jews in Nazi Germany.

            Trump has also been criticized for flailing his arms and distorting his speech as he mocked a New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who is disabled.

            Trump mocked the reporter as he defended his unsubstantiated assertion that during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, he watched on television as “thousands and thousands” of people in New Jersey cheered while the World Trade Center fell.

            Still, Trump is not the only front-runner to slide in the latest survey.

          • The Polls mean nothing . February in Iowa will reveal the truth about who really is going to be our nominee . It will be the same man who won it in 2008, the one that supports The Fair Tax.

  6. Typical media hype. Trump plays the media like a fiddle and comes out with stronger ratings every time. It is about time someone talks like real people talk. It’s a tough world out there. These panty waist milk toast public servants who never say boo, never give their opinion, hold all their feelings in their closets where they shudder and shake to think someone might be “offended.” I for one am sick of it. I love Donald Trump. I really like Ted Cruz. I really like Ben Carson and I really like Rand Paul. I will be happy if any one of them wins the election. But I would bet only Trump has the balls, the moxie and the money to confront the Washington machine – it is a huge battle we have on our hands (the people who want to return to our constitutionally limited republican form of self government). I hope that Trump wins; that he chooses Ben Carson for his Surgeon General. I hope he sets up a new agency called Constitutional Compliance and apoints Rand Paul as the Head of the Department. I hope he works to get Ted Cruz as the Senate Majority Leader. Maybe Scott Walker as his Chief Financial Officer. Maybe, I said maybe … Marco Rubio as the Secretary of State. Just thinking outloud.

  7. I would like to see Trump as president because of his age, it would make more sense than having him as VP. Cruz could be VP for one term, then run for president for the next two terms. Please, Mr. Trump, do not tear into Cruz for any reason. Let him remain your friend so you can work together in the WH. You share many great ideas. Don’t spoil it. And Ted, you also, should just keep on focus rather than tearing into any of the other candidates. You and Donald could be a great team for America’s good. God bless.

    • I think Cruz has far too much class to stoop to the level that some of the other candidates have. Even when he has been attacked, he does not get childish, he simply proves his attacker wrong with facts. Cruz 2016!!

  8. Sorry folks, I like Ted Cruz, but he’s a politician and God knows what favors he owes, Trump is not a politician and tremendous businessman and owes nobody anything. Trump can’t be swayed by lobbyists and special interest groups that have their agenda, he is his own MAN!! I could think of Cruz maybe as a VP.

  9. Trump should be focusing his verbal “attacks” on the corruption in the demoncrap party – most notably the failed administration, the liar and the angry socialist. Those three alone give him more than enough fodder. I, for one, am sick of the internal Republican attacks – he is turning me further away from him when he does that, and he appears so childish and plays right into the libiot’s hands. Either way, Cruz is the better candidate in my opinion.

    • I liked cruz from the moment he gave that speech announcing his candidacy. I like that “libbot” . I call feminists fembots. We are like minded. Like the daiy caller? I’ve been on downtrend the last six or seven weeks. I got kicked of truth report 2months ago. I think I cursed. My posts are disppearing at dt. I am really tired. Catch you later.

      • thanks slypen! I like ‘fembot’ too! And yes, I do travel over to the daily caller here and there when I have a moment. We indeed are like-minded and need more folks who are as well. I know they are out there – we/they are all part of the proverbial Sleeping Giant that I believe has FINALLY woken up to all of this crap. Anyway, best to you and catch you later at one of these sites!

  10. The last thing this moron needs to do is attack Cruz. Cruz is actually the best man for the job out of the entire bunch, but if Trump is gonna win, we’ve GOT to back him. The alternative is FATAL. Ideal ticket is Trump/Cruz.

  11. It trump wants to win this once and for all, all he has to say at the next debate is: “Ladies and gentlemen…when I’m elected President, I’m going to put ALL THESE OTHER candidates in my cabinet”. Game over.

  12. FROM A REGISTERED DEMOCRAT, A CHRISTIAN AND A VETERAN OF THE
    KOREAN WAR, 52/53, BUT AFTER GATHERING ALL THE FACTS, I VOTE FOR THE MOST
    QUALIFIED PERSON, NOT A PARTY.

    QUESTIONS YOU SHOULD ASK YOURSELF, REGARDLESS IF YOU ARE
    REPUBLICAN, DEMOCRAT, OR INDEPENDENT. IS
    THE THOUSANDS OF MUSLIMS OBAMA IS TRYING TO BRING INTO THIS COUNTRY A START OF
    AN INVASION OF HIS MUSLIM COMRADES??

    ALL SENATORS AND REPRESENTATIVES HAD BETTER GET TOGETHER NOW
    AND BLOCK ALL MUSLIMS FROM ENTERING THIS COUNTRY AND SEND THE ONES BACK ALREADY
    LET IN. CITZENS CONTACT YOUR GOVERNMENT
    REPRESENTATIVES AND DEMAND THEY TAKE ACTION.

    WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN WHOLESALE KILLING STARTS, HOLLOW FOR
    OBAMA. YOU BETTER HAVE A GUN AND PLENTY OF AMMUNITION.

    WE HAD BETTER ARM EVER SOLDIER WE HAVE AND FORCE THEM TO
    CARRY THEM WITH PLENTY OF AMMUNITION.
    THIS SHOULD BE DONE IMMEDIATELY.

    TRUMP IS THE MOST QUALIFIED PERSON TO RUN THIS COUNTRY AT
    THIS TIME? IF ALLOWED TO HOLD OFFICE. I THINK WE SHOULD HAVE 6 YEAR TERM LIMITS FOR
    ALL POLITICIANS. GIVE TRUMP 12 YEARS, I
    DO NOT BELIEVE ANYONE CAN STRAIGHTEN THIS MESS OUT IN 6.

    IS OBAMA AND HILLIARY PLANNING AN INVASION WITH HIS MUSLIM
    COMRADES NEXT YEAR TO STAY IN POWER? I
    THINK SO.

    WHY HAS FEMA BUILT HUGE CAMP IN EAST KENTUCKY? THIS IS A FACT AND IT HAS ARMED GUARDS. COULD
    IT BE TO HOUSE A MUSLIM ARMY????? THIS HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY A PERSON LIVING 7
    MILES FROM THIS CAMP.

    ARE THERE 35 MUSLIM TRANING CAMPS HERE IN THE USA & ONE
    8 MILES OVER IN MEXICO? I THINK SO.

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT TRY AND BUY UP ALL AMMUNITION WITH
    OUR TAX MONEY? WAS IT TO SUPPLY AN
    INVADING ARMY? I THINK SO. WHERE IS THIS AMMUNITION AT TODAY?

    WHY IS OBAMA BRINGING IN UN TROOPS TO POLICE OUR MAJOR
    CITIY’S? COULD THIS BE PART OF A PLAN TO
    INVADE THIS COUNTRY? I THINK SO.

    WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF AN INVASION HAPPENS? WOULD THERE BE A NEW PRESIDENT? I DO NOT THINK SO.

    WHY IS OBAMA AND HILIARY TRYING TO TAKE OUR GUNS? COULD IT BE TO KEEP US FROM FIGHTING AN
    INVASION? I THINK SO.

    WOULD IT NOT BE BETTER IF EVERY PERSON HAD A GUN, WITH
    PLENTY OF AMMUNITION, IF WE WERE INVADED?
    I THINK SO.

    WHY IS OBAMA, KERRY AND HILLIARY. BRINGING IN 260 THOUSAND YOUNG MUSLIMS? COULD
    IT BE FOR AN IVASION? I THINK SO.

    WHY WAS A SHIPPMENT OF OVER 120 PLANES & OVER 100 TANKS
    TO EGYPT STOPPED AFTER THE ARMY KICKED THE RADICAL MULIMS OUT OF CONTROL LAST
    YEAR? WAS THE SHIPMENT TO HELP THE
    RADICALS? I THINK SO.

    WAKE UP AMERICA, YOU
    HAVE NOT SEEN ANYTHING YET.

    WHY DID OUR GOVERNMENT GIVE 5 TOP TERRIOST FOR ONE
    TRAITOR? WAS OBAMA PROTECTING HIS
    COMRADES. I THINK SO.

    DID YOU BELIEVE OBAMA WHEN HE SAID ON NATION WIDE TV THAT HE
    WAS A MUSLIM? I BELIEVE THIS IS THE
    ONLY TRUTH HE HAS SAID.

    DO YOU BELIEVE OBAMA TO BE BLACK? HIS MOTHER WAS WHITE, HIS DAD A NORTH AFRICA
    ARAB.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THIS GOVERNMENT HAS FORCED ISRAEL TO
    NUKE IRAN? I THINK SO. I ALSO BELIEVE A
    NORTHEN ARMY WILL COME DOWN AND ATTACK ISRAEL AND GOD, NOT ISRAEL WILL DESTROY
    3/4TH OF THAT ARMY IN THE VALLEY THERE.

    WHY HAS BLACK
    AMERICA TURNED AGAINST THE PARTY THAT FREED THE SLAVES.

    LINCOLN WAS A
    REPUBLICAN, HE AND THOUSANDS OF WHITES DIED TO FREE THE SLAVES.

    DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE DEMOCRATS STARTED THE KKK. I KNOW SO.

    WHAT IS THE TRUE REASON RUSSIA IS GATHERING AN ARMY THERE,
    COULD IT BE TO TRY AND STOP ISRAEL. I
    THINK SO.

    WHY ARE OUR TROOPS NOT ALLOWED TO HAVE GUNS AND
    AMMUNITION? COULD IT BE TO KEEP THEM
    FROM STOPPING AN INVASION? I THINK SO.

    I COULD TAKE 100
    ARMED MUSLIMS AND TAKE OVER ANY UNARMED MILITARY BASE, IF YOU WAS PREPAIRED TO
    KILL EVERY ONE ON THAT BASE AS MUSLIMS DO.
    IF SO, WHAT COULD YOU DO WITH 260 THOUSAND OR MORE.

    ANALYZE THESE QUESTIONS AND MAKE UP YOUR MIND ON WHAT WE
    NEED TO DO TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY AND PREVENT A UNBELIVABLE BLOOD BATH IF ALL
    OF THE ABOVE IS RIGHT.

    EMAIL THIS TO ALL
    YOUR FRIENDS, DEMOCRATS, REPUBLICAN OR INDEPENDENTS.

  13. This would be a very dumb move on the part of The Donald. Ted would kick his ass in a debate. Ted and a few other candidates are not into trashing other candidates. These put their ideas out there and if people like them, then they will get their votes. Candidates who trash other candidates (other than Hillary and Bernie) are desperate.

  14. All you Cruz people—Cruz is for keeping Illegals here in states, and for bring in refugees.
    NO WAY Cruz

  15. The problem here is that Cruz has a Track Record ‘For the People’ that is Outstanding. Trump has a Track Record of Flip-flopping. Cruz – you know what you get. Trump – talks a good talk, but you are taking a ‘chance’. …and REALLY WORRIED about Trump on the Foreign Affairs Stage. Obama has done SO MUCH DAMAGE to our relationships with our Allies – We don’t need someone who ‘Flies-off-the-handle’ at the ‘drop-of-a-hat’.

  16. We have needed a very loud boisterous voice (a barker) to get people’s attention. “The people” have been asleep for years.
