Trump, Cruz spar over car rental scheme
Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are sparring over a car rental company’s plan to offer free rides to drivers of car rental vehicles.
“You should be the best drivers in the world,” Trump said at a campaign event Monday in South Carolina.
Cruz shot back, “And I know it’s a joke, but if you don’t have that kind of drive, I don’t want to go out and get rides for you.
I’ll give you my number.
And I’ll call you.”
In a video of the exchange, Cruz can be seen standing over Cruz as Trump says he’d never go out to get rides.
Trump also says he doesn’t care about Cruz’s car rental business.
Cruz, a Republican who has led his party’s Senate bid for months, has struggled to win over voters as the 2016 presidential campaign has focused on income inequality, healthcare and a faltering economy.
Cruz has spent most of his time on the campaign trail defending Trump.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that Cruz has “a great deal of problems.”
“Ted Cruz, like his brother Marco, has a great deal more problems than his brother,” Trump tweeted.
“He’s not the best candidate, and he has a terrible record on jobs, healthcare, borders and so many other issues.
He doesn’t have a great record on veterans.”
Trump’s campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
