Trump Hits Cruz For Canadian Birth After Heidi Calls Him An “Immigrant”

Donald Trump is reminding voters about Ted Cruz’s Canadian birth after Heidi Cruz called her husband an “immigrant.”

According to The Hill:

“Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump on Sunday reiterated his argument that rival Ted Cruz can’t be president because he wasn’t born in this country.

“He was born in Canada folks. He was born in Canada,” Trump said during a rally in Indiana on Sunday.

“No. 1, he can’t win, he’s got no path to win. And if he had a path to win, which he doesn’t, he has very few votes and he has very few delegates, but, I’ve been saying, he wasn’t born in this country.”

Cruz’s wife, Heidi Cruz, referred to her husband as an immigrant during an Indiana campaign stop on Saturday.

“Ted is an immigrant,” Heidi Cruz said. “He is Hispanic. We can unify this party.”

The Cruz campaign later said Heidi Cruz misspoke. She meant to call her husband the son of an immigrant.”
