“Donald Trump is not going to be the Republican nominee.”
Cruz, along with the entire GOP presidential field, has repeatedly pledged to support the party’s nominee, even if it's Trump. The party had asked all its candidates to do so amid threats from the real estate mogul that he could mount a third-party bid that could sink the party’s chances at the White House. But both Cruz and John Kasich have begun to publicly retreat from such bold pronouncements.
The Texas senator has recently answered those questions by swearing off the prospect of Trump becoming the nominee, refusing to address a hypothetical he believes will never come to pass.
The days-long feud stemmed from a Tuesday night Trump tweet where he threatened to “spill the beans” on Heidi Cruz, and then a follow-up tweet that criticized her appearance.
