Trump Doubles Down On His Attacks On ‘Whack Job’ Ted Cruz [VIDEO]

Donald Trump blasted Sen. Ted Cruz arguing, “We can’t have a guy who stands in the middle of the Senate floor and every other Senator think he’s a whack-job, right, you have to make deals, you have to get along.”

In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer airing on Monday, Trump said, “Well, I think the establishment actually is against me but really coming online because they see me as opposed to Cruz who is a nasty guy, who can’t get along with anybody.” (RELATED: Trump: ‘Everybody Hates Ted’ [VIDEO])

“You know, look at a certain point, you got to make deals. We can’t have a guy who stands in the middle of the Senate floor and every other senator think he’s a whack-job, right, you have to make deals, you have to get along. That’s the purpose of what our founders created. And Ted cannot get along with anybody. He’s a nasty person. You don’t see that. (RELATED: Trump: Ted Cruz Is ‘A Nasty Guy’ [VIDEO])

“And even when he was supportive of me, I kept saying, watch what’s going to happen, he’s a nasty guy and he brought it up at the debate. He started it, I finished it, but he started getting very bad at the debate,” he continued. “And then he tell as lies. I mean, he says I knocked down some woman’s home. He’s got bulldozers. I never knocked down her home. She didn’t want it. And the words ’eminent domain;’ you wouldn’t have roads, you wouldn’t have airports, you wouldn’t have hospitals, you wouldn’t have schools. You have to have eminent domain. By the way, the Keystone Pipeline is all based on eminent domain. You wouldn’t move that thing ten feet without taking that land on which it sits. And by the way, all those people get paid a lot of money. It’s not like they take it, they take it and pay a lot of money but he makes a big deal about eminent domain. You wouldn’t have a country, you wouldn’t have one highway in this country if you didn’t have, you wouldn’t have a railroad, you wouldn’t have anything.”
