Ted Cruz: Let's face it, Trump embodies New York values

Cruz made the comment on the Howie Carr Show, after the host asked him about Trump playing Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA”, a reference to the allegation, recently trumpeted by Trump, that Cruz may be ineligible to serve as president because he was born in Canada.

“Well, look, I think he may shift in his new rallies to play ‘New York, New York’ because Donald comes from New York and he embodies New York values,” Cruz said, referring to the famous Frank Sinatra song…

Democratic attacks on him, he added, “may be driven by the fact that the polling right now shows Donald loses to Hillary and loses by a pretty big margin but I beat Hillary and I think that’s got the Hillary folks a little bit concerned and so they’re doing everything they can to amplify Donald’s attacks.”
