Trump Calls Cruz An 'Anchor Baby'

During a Friday rally in New Hampshire, Donald Trump targeted Ted Cruz by calling him an "anchor baby." Trump said “Ted Cruz may not be a U.S. citizen. Ted Cruz is an anchor baby in Canada, but Canada doesn’t accept anchor babies.”

Anchor baby is a term used to describe the children of parents who give birth in American so that their child could be a U.S. citizen. Although Trump has received criticism for using the word, he continues to use it.

He also questioned whether Cruz is eligible to serve as president because he wasn't born on American soil. He then slammed Cruz's performance at Thursday night's debate.

Trump stated “I’m glad I wasn’t there, he got pummeled. And they didn’t even mention that he was born in Canada. When you were born in Canada you aren’t supposed to be running for president of the United States.” Trump went on to argue that his poll numbers have gone up since he skipped the debate to host an event he says raised $6 million for veterans.

In addition, Trump discussed Cruz not disclosing loans he took during his 2012 Senate campaign by saying “On his financial disclosure form, he didn't want to put Goldman Sachs down, he didn’t want to put Citibank down, because he wants you to think he's Robin Hood, he will save you from the banks. But unfortunately the banks have him. Goldman Sachs will call, ‘Ted, this is what we want this week, make sure you get it. Remember the loan you got, Ted.’"

Trump urged his voters by saying “I kid when I say this, but you may be feeling badly … you may have lost your job, you may be in a major state of depression. It doesn’t matter. Go out and vote. I will get rid of your depression, you’ll be happy.”
