Cruz Calls on Trump to Release Alleged Off-the-Record NY Times Tape
At tonight's GOP debate, Sen. Ted Cruz challenged Donald Trump to authorize the release of an off-the-record New York Times interview which he allegedly expressed "flexibility" on his immigration policy, specifically with his promise to deport 11 million illegal immigrants.
Trump said that there has to be flexibility and negotiation when any deal is made.
"I may have discussed something like that with The New York Times, but I would never release off-the-record conversations," Trump said.
Cruz then argued that the tape may prove that Trump is expressing rhetoric to voters that he doesn't really believe.
"Simply release the tape," said Cruz, arguing that Trump has a record of hiring illegal aliens instead of American workers.
