At the Republican town hall gathering in Milwaukee last night, both Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump were asked about their various exchanges in social media and elsewhere about their respective wives and accusations of rough campaign tactics. CNN host Anderson Cooper asked Trump to speak about what he called the "back and forth" with the Texas senator.
Cooper said, “I’ve got to ask you about this back and forth between you and Senator Cruz about wives,” adding, “After saying that you were going to spill the beans about Heidi Cruz, you retweeted an unflattering picture of her next to a picture of your wife.”
“I thought it was a nice picture of Heidi,” Trump responded. “I thought it was fine.”
“Come on,” Cooper said, increduously.
“I thought it was fine,” Trump insisted. “She’s a pretty woman.”
Here follows the transcript of the discussion:
COOPER: You’re running for president of the United States.
TRUMP: Excuse me, I didn’t start it. I didn’t start it.
COOPER: But, sir, with all due respect, that’s the argument of 5-year-old.
TRUMP: No, it’s not.
COOPER: The argument of a 5-year-old is he started it.
TRUMP: You would say that. That’s the problem with our country.
COOPER: Every parent knows a kid who says he started it.
TRUMP: That’s not a 5-year-old.
