Sour Grapes: Trump Alleges Cruz Committed ‘Fraud’ In Iowa, ‘Stole’ Election

Two days after graciously congratulating Texas Sen. Ted Cruz on his caucus victory in Iowa, billionaire businessman Donald Trump is singing a more sour tune. Trump now says Cruz “stole it.”

During Monday’s caucus, Cruz staffers circulated a CNN story claiming Dr. Ben Carson would be ending his campaign after the vote. The story was false, since Carson was only taking a day off the trail to return home to “get fresh clothes,” but it wasn’t clarified until after the vote. The Cruz campaign has admitted¬†circulating the false news story¬†but insists the error was on CNN’s part.

The Cruz campaign’s actions were based on the CNN story and not a rumor started by them, according to the campaign. But that hasn’t stopped Trump from claiming fraud.
