Ted Cruz to Donald Trump on threatened lawsuit: Bring it on – Video

tedvtrumpOn Wednesday, Sen. [score]Ted Cruz[/score], R-Texas, held a press conference where he addressed accusations and threats of lawsuits by media mogul Donald Trump, essentially telling Trump to ‘bring it on.’

“Donald, if you want to file a lawsuit challenging this ad, claiming it’s defamation, file the lawsuit,” he said after playing the ad Trump doesn’t like.

Additionally, he handed out a copy of the cease and desist letter sent by Trump and a list of liberal Democrats Trump has contributed to.


Will Donald Trump win the 2024 election?


Here’s a video of Cruz’s remarks:

Politico added:

Cruz, the former solicitor general of Texas and an ex-Supreme Court clerk, was in full lawyer mode as he stood before a hotel conference room packed with reporters and cameras and challenged Trump to file a lawsuit, relishing the prospect of personally deposing his Republican rival.

The senator, armed with an easel that displayed Trump’s campaign contributions to Democrats and a video of the ad in question, held forth for 40 minutes, seeking to steal the spotlight in South Carolina days before Saturday’s primary, after being repeatedly hammered with criticisms from both Trump and Marco Rubio.

Naturally, Trump responded sharply:  “He is a liar and these ads and statements made by Cruz are clearly desperate moves by a guy who is tanking in the polls — watching his campaign go up in flames finally explains Cruz’s logo,” he said.

Trump has threatened to sue Cruz multiple times since the Iowa caucuses.  Cruz, however, isn’t backing down and said that he would air the disputed ad even more.


Game on…
