“I had nothing to do with it. The campaign had absolutely nothing to do with it,” Trump told ABC’s Jonathan Karl on “This Week” Sunday. “I have over control over the National Enquirer.”
Trump added it was “disgraceful” that Cruz had blamed the story on Trump.
“For him to try and say that I had to do with it, to put the shoe on the other foot, is disgraceful,” Trump said, adding, “By the way, he’s the one that started it,” referring to an ad by an anti-Trump super PAC that featured a racy image of Trump’s wife Melania from her days as a model.
