When asked about Donald Trump admitting that he made a mistake in retweeting an unflattering image of Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore]’s wife Heidi, the Texas senator said, “I suppose miracles can happen.”

In a town hall moderated by Fox News’s Megyn Kelly that will air Monday evening in Madison, Wisconsin but played live on MSNBC, Cruz said, “I don’t care what [Trump] tweets. What I’m focused on is how do we solve the real problems of this country.” (RELATED: Trump Retweets Photo Mocking Ted Cruz’s Wife’s Looks)

Kelly asked Cruz, “As most of America now knows, last week, or a week and a half ago, Donald Trump retweeted a nasty tweet about your wife, Heidi, and it was an unfavorable, unflattering screen grab of her next to a nicer picture of his wife, Melania. And he this weekend did something we don’t see Trump do a lot, which was he came out and said that was a mistake and that he probably shouldn’t have done it. At the time he did it, you called him a sniveling coward. Does this admission change your feeling?” (RELATED: Cruz To Trump: ‘You’re A Sniveling Coward, Leave Heidi The Hell Alone’ [VIDEO])

Cruz replied, “Well listen, you know, Donald saying he made a mistake, I suppose miracles can happen. But to be honest, it’s gotten to the point, as this campaign has gone on, the silliness, the personal attacks, the nastiness, the cursing from Donald, you know, my reaction is ‘who cares?””  (RELATED: Trump Says It Was A ‘Mistake’ To Retweet Unflattering Picture Of Ted Cruz’s Wife)

“I don’t care what [Trump] says anymore,” Cruz claimed. “I don’t care what he tweets. What I’m focused on is how do we solve the real problems of this country.”

“America has real challenges and these are serious times. This is not the time for a circus side-show. This is the time for a leader to step up and say, ‘We’re going to take the boot of the federal government off the backs of small businesses. We’re going to bring jobs back to America. We’re going to defend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and we’re going to keep America safe from radical Islamic terrorism.'”
