He did not name either rival but suggested that those who would “adhere to the law of the land” are effectively backing the practice.

Those comments appeared to trigger Trump's tweets.

"Lying Cruz put out a statement, ‘Trump & Rubio are w/Obama on gay marriage,” Trump said of the Texas senator in an earlier post. "Cruz is the worst liar, crazy or very dishonest. Perhaps all three?”

 

Cruz added that he considers the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges last year to be “lawless” and “will not stand." The landmark case requires that all 50 states allow and recognize same-sex marriages.
