The Texas senator sought to further condemn the real estate mogul at an event Sunday for his opposition to a law that forces transgender people to use the bathroom corresponding with their sex as identified on their birth certificate, as opposed to their gender identity.

Trump said Thursday that North Carolina is “paying a big price” for the law, which supporters of LGBT rights see as discriminatory toward transgender people. 

Trump said transgender people should use whatever bathroom they want. 

Cruz has assailed Trump for being “politically correct.” 

Cruz says the law is necessary to protect children from predators. 

“When you deal with people who are repulsive perverts and criminals — there are some bad people in the world and we shouldn’t be facilitating putting little girls alone in the bathroom with grown, adult men. That is just a bad, bad, bad idea,” Cruz said Thursday.
