Under the headline "The Real Donald Trump," the list shows the names of various Democrats next to the amount of money Cruz says Trump donated to them.

Cruz distributed the list during a press conference in South Carolina where he tore into Trump, who has been threatening legal action against Cruz as the two battle on the campaign trail.

"Donald Trump doesn’t want to be under oath answering questions about his own record because his position is anyone who points to his record is somehow lying. This threat and lawsuit is the very definition of frivolous," Cruz said.

Trump has threatened legal action if Cruz didn't "take down his false ads and retract lies." Cruz has replied that Trump accuses opponents of lying to hide his own record.
