Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz in an interview broadcast Sunday said it is “evident to anybody watching” that front-runner Donald Trump has a problem with strong women.

{mosads}“Of course he does,” Cruz responded when asked on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“If you look just this week at the contrast — this week I was proud to announce Carly Fiorina as my running mate,” the Texas senator said.

“In the very same week, Donald Trump stood proudly touting the endorsement of Mike Tyson, a convicted rapist who served three years in prison here in Indiana for rape,” he added.

“And Donald’s explanation is that Tyson’s ‘a tough guy.’ You know what? I don’t think rapists are tough guys. I think they’re weak; I think they’re bullies; I think they’re cowards.”

Cruz said the billionaire’s comments last week that Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton is playing a gender card are “typical Donald Trump.”

“The only thing he knows how to do in any given circumstance is he yells, he screams, he curses or he insults. So there he’s insulting Hillary. Listen, Hillary is a very smart, committed liberal. Her policies are profoundly wrong,” he said.

“But, you know, Donald can’t criticize her policies. You know why? Because he supports them. Donald and Hillary, they’re flip sides of the same coin.”

Trump leads Cruz by approximately 4 points just days before Republican voters on Tuesday cast ballots in Indiana, according to the RealClearPolitics average of polls in the Hoosier State.
