Remember when Donald Trump kept insisting that he was only bringing up Ted Cruz’s citizen status because he was worried the Democrats might sue?
Sadly, there is no way that Ted Cruz can continue running in the Republican Primary unless he can erase doubt on eligibility. Dems will sue!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 13, 2016
They even spent a whole seven minutes on the topic during one of last month’s GOP debates
When the moderators asked Trump why he was raising the issue now, Trump responded with “Because now he’s doing a little bit better. I didn’t care before—it’s true.... The fact is, there’s a big question mark on your head, and you can’t do that to the party.”
And then he says, “I’m not bringing a suit. I promise. But the Democrats are going to bring a lawsuit.”
But that was weeks ago. And shockingly enough, Trump seems to be flirting with the idea of—yes—suing Ted Cruz.
If @TedCruz doesn’t clean up his act, stop cheating, & doing negative ads, I have standing to sue him for not being a natural born citizen.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2016
