Donald Trump And Ted Cruz Bring Wives Into Twitter Feud

As the feud between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz heats up, Trump pushed it forward through Twitter on Tuesday. This time, it involved Cruz's wife.

Trump tweeted, "Lyin' Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad. Be careful, Lyin' Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!" Around 10 minutes earlier, Trump tweeted and deleted a similar statement.

It appears that Trump was referring to a Facebook advertisement targeted at Mormons showing his wife Melania, posing nude. The ad was produced by an anti-Trump super PAC, Make America Awesome, which has no known connection to the Cruz campaign.

Cruz then responded by tweeting, "Pic of your wife not from us. Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you're more of a coward than I thought. #classless." Heidi Cruz is a senior executive for Goldman Sachs, and took a leave from work in order to help her husband's campaign. She has since become one of the campaign's strongest fundraisers.

On the campaign trail in Wisconsin, Heidi Cruz also hit back by saying "Well, as you probably know by now, most of the things, many of the things others say are not based in reality. I have one job on this campaign, and it is to be helping Ted win this race. And it is, I think, the easiest job in the world, and that is to speak the truth: what I know about my husband, our family, myself."

Heidi Cruz added of Melania's photo, "In no shape or form are we related to it." Then, on Wednesday, Trump tweeted "Lyin' Ted Cruz denied that he had anything to do with the G.Q. model photo post of Melania. That's why we call him Lyin' Ted!" John Kasich weighed in the feud by saying, "These sort of personal things are way out of bounds."
