Donald Trump slammed Republican presidential rival Ted Cruz and implied that he has far better judgment than the Texas senator.
Billionaire business mogul Donald Trump did an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper, where he insisted that he has better judgment than rival Ted Cruz. The two used to be cordial towards each other but as of late, the relationship between them has been fractured and appears to be evolving to another phase.
"I was against going into Iraq. That's good judgment. I was for bombing (ISIS's) oil long before anyone else was talking about it. That's good judgment. I have great judgment. I would say I have far better judgment than Ted," Trump said during the interview.
It is expected that their quarrel is about to intensify as it has been revealed in the latest Des Moines Register/Bloomberg News poll that Cruz is ahead of Trump in Iowa. The two can debate on who is the better candidate during their face off at Las Vegas at the Republican presidential debate on Tuesday.
In another article by Yahoo Politics, the mogul branded Cruz as a "bit of a maniac" and does not have the "right temperament" to fulfill the role of president of the United States.
"The way he's dealt with the Senate - where he goes in frankly like a bit of a maniac - you never get things done that way. You can't walk into the Senate and scream and call people liars and not be able to cajole and get along with people. He'll never get anything done. That's the problem with Ted," Trump said.
Trump continued by saying that he has a "better temperament" and revealed that he gets along better with people compared to Cruz. Despite the fact that he is often criticized and on the front news for something that he said, the businessman declared that he gets along with everybody and this includes the Democrats, liberals, Republicans and conservatives.
The Republican candidate also boasted about his accomplishments in business, saying that because his judgment is great, he was able to build a "multi-multi-multi-billion" dollar company. He even mentioned his reality show "The Apprentice", which lasted for 14 seasons.
For Cruz's part, the candidate has been hesitant to make comments or criticize Trump. He said on Friday that he will not allow himself to be in a "cage match" with his Republican rival.
