"Even in New York, I had three— two good guys: Ted Cruz and John Kasich," Trump said at a rally in San Jose, Calif., to which the crowd started up his go-to primary chant of "Lyin' Ted." "Now I want to save that now for Hillary — lying, lying Hillary, that lying— she is a liar."

Trump, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee, struck back at the Democratic front-runner during the rally after her scathing foreign policy speech earlier Thursday.

"Ted Cruz is no longer a liar, we don’t say Lyin' Ted anymore," Trump told the crowd. "We love Ted, we love him, right? We love him. Now we don’t want to say Lyin' Ted. I'd love to pull it out and just use it on lying, crooked Hillary because she is a liar."
