Cruz Suggests That Trump May Really Be a Democrat

Ted Cruz on Sunday questioned whether Donald Trump, one of his rivals for the GOP presidential nomination, is actually a Republican.

Just before the Democratic candidates faced off on NBC, the Texas senator tweeted: “As the DemDebate begins, Republicans have to wonder which team Donald Trump would play for.”

Breitbart News reported that the tweet featured a link to a YouTube video of Trump interviews in the past, when the real-estate developer praised Hillary Clinton and her ex-president husband. In one of the clips, Trump told interviewer Tim Russert: “She really works hard. I think she does a good job. They are just really terrific people. I like them both very much.”

The billionaire admits he has made contributions to Democrats, including Hillary Clinton when she ran for the U.S. Senate from New York, as well as Republicans. He argues that the donations were necessary to advance his business interests.

Trump continues to hold a large lead in national polls of GOP voters. However, he and Cruz are engaged in a tight race in Iowa, which holds its first-in-the-nation presidential caucuses on Feb. 1. Cruz is trying to portray Trump as a political opportunist who has not been loyal to the Republican Party in the past. Meanwhile, Trump is suggesting his opponent may not be eligible to serve as president because he was born in Canada.
