Ted Cruz Calls Donald Trump's Comments 'Trumper Tantrums'

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz spoke on Newsmax TV's "The Hard Line." He talked of Donald Trump's most recent comments saying, "We have now gotten used to the temper tantrums, or Trumper Tantrums, that he throws. Whenever he's unhappy, he melts down and he explodes on Twitter. It is odd behavior for a grown man, and it is more something you would expect to see in Romper Rooms."

Earlier that day, Cruz said his 5-year-old and 7-year-old daughters behave better than Trump does.

About Trump's second place finish in the Iowa caucuses, Cruz said "I guess that he's unhappy. But whenever he's unhappy, Donald blames someone else...It's never his fault."

Cruz said the Iowa voters have determined that Trump is not conservative. He stated, "His health plan is identical to Hillary Clinton's and Bernie Sanders'. It's expanding Obamacare and putting the federal government in charge of you and your doctor. If I'm president, we're going to repeal every word of Obamacare."

Cruz also shares his views on why Trump skipped the last GOP debate saying, "Instead he just wants to engage in insults. I'm not interested in insulting Donald, and I don't think the American people are interested in hearing politicians bicker like children."

Cruz added, "It'll be interesting to see if he skips the New Hampshire debate, too, because he wants to make this a debate about insults and personal attacks."
