“I had nothing to do with it,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week. “The campaign had absolutely nothing to do with it.

“He's got a problem with the National Enquirer. I have no control over the National Enquirer. I didn't even know about the story. I just got it last night. Somebody sent it to me over to read, so I could at least see what it said.”

Trump said it was “disgraceful” that Cruz would say the billionaire had anything to do with it.

Trump, however, refused to condemn the story, which alleges that Cruz has had multiple extramarital affairs.

“I don't care. I'm really, I don't care. The National Enquirer did a story. It was their story. It wasn't my story. It was about Ted Cruz. I have no idea whether it was right or not. They actually have a very good record of being right. But I have absolutely no idea,” he said.

“Frankly, I said, I hope it's not right.”
