Ted Cruz fired back at Donald Trump Wednesday over allegations that he “stole” the Iowa election, accusing the billionaire businessman of throwing a “Trumpertantrum” and questioning whether he has the “temperament” to lead.
Speaking to reporters in New Hampshire, Cruz quipped that with Trump in charge, Americans might wake up and find he’s “nuked Denmark.”
“It seems his reaction to everything is to throw a fit,” the Republican presidential candidate said, adding: “He’s losing it.”
The tough response came after Trump unleased a hail of tweets accusing the Texas Republican senator of cheating in the Iowa caucuses — calling for either a new election to be held or the results to be nullified.
He was referring to accusations from candidate Ben Carson that Cruz supporters falsely told caucus-goers the retired neurosurgeon was suspending his campaign, as well as a controversial Cruz mailer that accused Iowans of a “voting violation.”
