Cruz: Trump Threatened My Wife Because 'He Got Clobbered in Utah'
"He got clobbered in Utah," the Texas senator told NBC's Savannah Guthrie on the "Today" show. "The way he tries to change the subject is by lashing out and attacking my wife. Now, I'm not going to stoop to that level, but Donald is in real trouble," said Cruz, pointing out that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has endorsed him.
Tuesday, Trump made his threats after the Make America Awesome super PAC released ads in Utah showing a nude photograph of his wife from a 2000 photo spread for British GQ magazine.
"Donald is a bully," Cruz told Guthrie. "And I told him last night, 'Don't you try to attack my wife.'"
And Cruz reiterated Wednesday that he had nothing to do with the ad featuring Trump's wife.
