Donald Trump Predicts: ‘Ted Cruz Is Going Down’

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump proclaimed this week that Ted Cruz, his closest rival for the party’s nomination, “is going down.”

Newsmax reported that the real-estate mogul made the remark during an interview with NH1 News in New Hampshire, where the first primary election will take place Feb. 9. Trump claimed Cruz was “very badly hurt” in Thursday night’s GOP candidates’ debate in Des Moines, Iowa. “It was not a good night for him, and it wasn’t good for a couple of the other folks. It was not good at all,” the billionaire said.

The Texas senator was on the receiving end of considerable criticism during the debate, which Trump boycotted because of his fight with Fox News. The front-runner was angry about the network having issued a statement ridiculing him.

He also did not want to take part in another debate featuring Fox News’ Megyn Kelly as a moderator. In the campaign’s first face-off of Republican White House hopefuls, she recited some of the derogatory words Trump has used to insult various women over the years. After the event, he said Kelly “had blood coming out of her wherever.”

Instead of attending Thursday night’s debate, Trump held a fundraising rally for wounded veterans. When a reporter for NH1 News asked him whether he intended to put pressure on Cruz, Trump answered: “I’d like to tell you it was by design. Maybe it was by instinct. I had my forum and I raised $6 million for veterans and it was a good night for us.”
