McCain Says He Expects a 'Surprise' in NH, Despite Big Trump Lead

Trump: Skipping Iowa Debate 'Probably' Cost Me Votes in the Caucus


Today in New Hampshire, Ted Cruz responded to Donald Trump's allegations that the Texas senator cheated his way to victory in Iowa and that the results should be nullified.

"It is no surprise that Donald is throwing yet another temper tantrum, or if you like, yet another 'Trumpertantrum,'" Cruz said. "It seems his reaction to everything is to throw a fit, to engage in insults. And I understand that Donald finds it very hard to lose...but at the end of the day the Iowa people spoke."

Cruz went on to say that Trump "can't debate the substance" and doesn't want to talk about issues, or "defend his lifelong support for Bernie Sanders-style socialized medicine."

He said he finds Trump's outbursts on Twitter funny, saying "I wake up every day and laugh at the latest thing Donald has tweeted, because he's losing it."

"We need a commander in chief, not a Twitterer in chief," Cruz said.

Cruz also said Trump lacks the judgment and temperament to be commander and that no one is comfortable with the idea of Trump having his "finger on the button."

"We're liable to wake up one morning and Donald if he were president would have nuked Denmark. That's not the temperament of a leader to keep this country safe."

Trump, who will join Greta Van Susteren tonight at 7:00pm ET, then responded on Twitter that Cruz "lied" about his position on Obamacare, and posted more allegations of fraud by Cruz.
