Dirty? Trump Blasts Cruz For Controversial “Disgraceful” Campaign Tactics

vxcxvdgbdv

According to The Hill:

“Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is calling rival Ted Cruz “dirty” for starting a rumor about Ben Carson’s campaign ending after the Iowa caucuses.

“[Ted Cruz] insulted Ben Carson,” the billionaire said at a news conference before a campaign rally in Milford, N.H. “What he did to Ben Carson was a disgrace.”

Trump also accused Cruz of insulting the people of Iowa when he sent out a voter violation mailer before the caucuses.

When asked if he thought Cruz was running a dirty campaign, Trump responded that his rival “certainly was dirty. What he did to Ben Carson was terrible,” Trump said.”

  1. and now they’re saying Hillary hired people from out of state for the counting ! with missing precincts, ending up in a coin toss … now what ?

    • No, that was the Cruz campaign. Why not hire Iowa people? Because the out of staters can vote on the slips of paper without being noticed in a crowded room, and they can vote again in their home state. Sounds like it.anyway. It smells.

  2. That’s more like something you would do Trump . Cruz didn’t do anything wrong and you’re just a lousy loser.

      • Wrong. The only candidate who wouldn’t stoop to these dirty tactics is Trump and probably Carson. They are not “career” politicians knowing the campaign dirty tricks like telling lies to Carson supporters to get his evangelists voters. This is Trump’s first time running for any political office, what you see is what you get…PC or not.

    • My book says that bearing false witness against your neighbor is wrong. Telling voters that Carson is dropping out when you know that isn’t true seems like bearing “false witness” to me.

    • Excuse me Linda!! Your speaking like a parent who thinks the children Do no wrong!! No way Trump would have to/ever would stoop that low!! Cruz is a forked tongue snake on the ground and you know a snake crawls on his belly on the ground. Cruz is the one that has a crude tongue tied in the middle & loose on both ends disgusting liar slime ball, that would do stoop as lowdown as they come with saying anything to get elected..

    • Ted Cruz Iowa staffer Spence Rogers saw the CNN piece that Carson was taking a break after Iowa. Rogers took it upon himself to give direction to all the Iowa precinct leaders DURING THE CAUCUS to take twist the news and steal Carson voters: “Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.” Perhaps Ted Cruz wasn’t personally aware of what happened, but his staff should be held accountable for this dirty move which skewed the votes. Candy Carson was at one of the caucuses, heard this announcement by the Cruz staff, got up and spoke on behalf of Dr. Carson to correct the information, and Dr. Carson won that precinct. The results could have been very different.

  3. Linda Stephens…. No matter how the false rumor was perpetrated, the fact remains it would not have been successful if people had the ability to be just slightly discerning. CNN made the comment that Dr. Carson was not heading from Iowa to New Hampshire. Instead he was gong home. The Cruz campaign workers in every precinct immediately, as the polls were opening, tweeted an otherwise spread the word that Dr. Carson was dropping out of the race for president. The Carson supporters who were at the pols and about to vote for Dr. Carson heard the rumor and if they were gullible they changed their vote. So, who is at fault here? The Cruz Campaign manager explained the next day that it was the fault off CNN and that his people simply informed all of teh Carson followers so they could be advised and change their vote to Cruz. We all remember a few months ago when the media and trump launched a smear of lies against Dr. Carson that Cruz immediately launched an attack against Trump questioning Trumps Christianity. Knowing the Carson followers who might abandon Trump would be Christians and would be looking for a like candidate to support. It worked then and so Cruz knew it would work again. It would not have worked this time if the voters would have stopped to think why would a candidate work for nearly a year, still be in double digits in the polls and then drop out just as the polls are opening to let the people tell him their position behind him? Now one can say the Iowa people are pretty gullible and less than discerning, but so is Cruz for thinking that to be true, and not discerning common sense out of the CNN broadcast just before the polls opened. We all know CNN has an agenda, it is just whether or not Cruz conspired with CNN to that end.

      • AbleAmerican… it was me, Fedup, not Linda who made the assertion you so obviously think is an impossibility. When a network as disabled as CNN and a politician have the same agenda. it is a very credible possibility. CNN lying??? A politician lying and being deceitful and corrupt??? Very possible. Maybe you are not as able as you assert, at least not from the neck up.When you learn it is not convincing just to disagree, one should state facts to support the disagreement, as well you will also be more discerning, and informed.

          • The video was very interesting, enlightening, well chronicled and documented. Thank you for the reference. I believe it totally supported my suppositions and accusations and theories. It most assuredly verified the corruption which is so readily reverted to and the ease with which politicians lie when attempting to wiggle out from the accusatory blanket which too infrequently spreads over them as a result.

  4. Cruz NEVER personally made that comment..CNN reporter, Moody, tweeted Carson was going back to Florida…BUT..made NO MENTION it was for a change of clothes after 18 straight solid days of campaigning in Iowa..TYPICAL “TRUMP”..misleading misguided NYC “values” move.. “TRUTH” is NOT in the “Trump” dictionary !!

    • Cruz didn’t make it, but his staffer did. Spence Rogers gave direction to all the Iowa precinct leaders DURING THE CAUCUS to take twist the news and steal Carson voters: “Please inform any Carson caucus goers of this news and urge them to caucus for Ted Cruz.” Cruz’s staff should be held accountable for this dirty move which skewed the votes. Candy Carson was at one of the caucuses, heard this announcement by the Cruz staff, got up and spoke on behalf of Dr. Carson to correct the information, and Dr. Carson won that precinct. The results could have been very different.

      • Apparently it wasn’t the only precinct though so no one can guess how many Carson votes went to Cruz from this lie. Too many people from different precincts had the same stories.

      Watch the video….and then please tell me what you think.

      Thanks, TT

  5. Mister Cruz didn’t win Iowa. What Mister Cruz did was to hijack enough votes from the Carson camp to barely squeak out a victory. That was no resounding defeat of Trump. In fact it proved that Cruz is desperate enough to win, that he will resort to dirty tricks in order to do so.

  6. Cruz also found an old photo of Trump and The Clintons that they were passing around at all the voting places. I don’t want a leader that lies about things and cheats when it benefits him ..
