Since the Iowa caucus, Ted Cruz had one night to enjoy his victory without any backlash. He beamed from the stage as he declared his victory over Trump. It lasted until Trump rained on his parade and accused Ted Cruz of voter’s fraud.
After he was leading the Iowa polls for weeks, Trump came in as runner up to Cruz. Trump started to fire of a storm of angry tweets on Wednesday accusing Cruz, claiming that he had stolen the caucuses.
This all erupted when Trump found out that Cruz supporters were circulating a fabricated CNN reported on Ben Carson which alleged that he was on the verge of dropping out of the race. This comes at no surprise given the fact that Carson had often accused Cruz’s campaign of playing ‘dirty tricks’ in order to grab his supporters in Iowa.
Since this was brought to light, some big name Republicans have piled on Cruz suggesting that Trump would have actually won. Irrespective of these claims, Cruz apologized to Carson on Tuesday while dismissing Trumps tweets, by referring to his attacks as a “Trump-er tantrum”. While questioning if Trump has the right temperament to be president.
