Stephen Miller, senior policy adviser to Donald Trump, said Monday that [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] is winning more delegates because of his “inferior ideas” that appeal to Republican party insiders.
Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom” host Bill Hemmer asked Miller about the Cruz campaign winning 34 delegates from Colorado’s Republican convention last week. (RELATED: ‘Totally Unfair!’ — Trump Says Colorado Vote Was Hijacked By ‘Phony Politicians’)
Miller replied, “Cruz isn’t winning more delegates because of a superior organization. Cruz is winning more delegates because of inferior ideas.” (RELATED: Rocky Mountain High: Cruz Scoops Up All Colorado GOP Delegates)
“Trump is challenging 40 years of failed orthodoxy on trade and immigration,” Miller said. “So he threatens established interests. Cruz doesn’t. Cruz is with the donor class on trade and immigration.”
“Three in four delegates are chosen by the party. So they’re going to tend to favor Ted Cruz. That’s a reality,” he continued. “Cruz performs better with party insiders. Trump performs better with voters.”
