Trump Slams Cruz-Kasich Partnership as “Horrible Act of Desperation”


Donald Trump isn’t taking the Ted Cruz-John Kasich collaboration sitting down. This Chol Hamoed morning, Trump blasted the two, stating that “it is sad that two grown politicians have to collude against one person who has only been a politician for ten months in order to try and stop that person from getting the Republican nomination.”

Trump, in a statement, went on to point out that Senator Cruz “has done very poorly and after his New York performance, which was a total disaster, he is in free fall, and as everyone has seen, he does not react well under pressure. Also, approximately 80% of the Republican Party is against him.”

Trump added: “Governor Kasich, who has only won 1 state out of 41, in other words, he is 1 for 41 and he is not even doing as well as other candidates who could have stubbornly stayed in the race like him but chose not to do so. Marco Rubio, as an example, has more delegates than Kasich and yet suspended his campaign one month ago. Others, likewise, have done much better than Kasich, who would get slaughtered by Hillary Clinton once the negative ads against him begin. 85% of Republican voters are against Kasich.”

Trump said that collusion is often illegal in many other industries, and “yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are.”

Trump pointed out that he has brought millions of voters into the Republican primary system and has received many millions of votes more than Cruz or Kasich. “Additionally,” he said, “I am far ahead of both candidates with delegates and would be receiving in excess of 60% of the vote except for the fact that there were so many candidates running against me.

“Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged. When two candidates who have no path to victory get together to stop a candidate who is expanding the party by millions of voters (all of whom will drop out if I am not in the race) it is yet another example of everything that is wrong in Washington and our political system. This horrible act of desperation, from two campaigns who have totally failed, makes me even more determined, for the good of the Republican Party and our country, to prevail!”
