Donald Trump, a man who loves winning, is not too fond of losing and he made that clear in a scathing statement issued by his campaign in response to rival Ted Cruz running away with the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday night.
Cruz handily won with 48.3 percent of the vote, compared to Trump’s 35.1 percent.
“Donald J. Trump withstood the onslaught of the establishment yet again,” the statement began. “Lyin’ Ted Cruz had the Governor of Wisconsin, many conservative talk radio show hosts, and the entire party apparatus behind him.”
The Trump campaign then leveled a serious allegation against Cruz, saying he was “coordinating” with his super PAC — this would be a violation of federal election laws, although no evidence was provided to support the claim.
“Not only was he propelled by the anti-Trump Super PAC’s spending countless millions of dollars on false advertising against Mr. Trump, but he was coordinating with his own Super PAC’s (which is illegal) who totally control him,” the campaign said.
After further dismissing Cruz as an establishment tool, Trump looked ahead to the New York primary, where he’s up by more than 30 points in some polls.
“Ted Cruz is worse than a puppet— he is a Trojan horse, being used by the party bosses attempting to steal the nomination from Mr. Trump,” the statement said. “We have total confidence that Mr. Trump will go on to win in New York, where he holds a substantial lead in all the polls, and beyond.
The candidate also reminded voters that he is the “only candidate” capable of obtaining the needed number of delegates to become the GOP nominee.
“Mr. Trump is the only candidate who can secure the delegates needed to win the Republican nomination and ultimately defeat Hillary Clinton, or whomever is the Democratic nominee, in order to Make America Great Again.”
