“If @TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have standing to sue him for not being a natural born citizen,” Trump tweeted.
Donald Trump also says that if Cruz is elected as Republican nominee, Democrats would argue that he is ineligible to be elected US president due to his birth in Canada.
Cruz who won the Iowa Caucus on the other hand is arguing that he is the only Republican candidate that can beat Trump. This is a stratagem to gain support from establishment figures in the US Republican Party who are uncomfortable with Donald Trump becoming their party’s flagbearer, due to what they see as his unconventional style and more extreme views.
Will Cruz stop the ads as Trump has demanded, or will he stick to them and push Trump to sue him? Only time will tell.
