Pence endorsed Cruz last week but praised Trump while doing it, commending the businessman for giving a voice to frustrated Americans.

"If you really take a look at Mike Pence, I think he gave me more of an endorsement than Ted Cruz," Trump said on "Fox News Sunday." "His donors and special interests obviously made him give an endorsement. 

"It's over. I think it's over now. Cruz cannot win," Trump added. "I'm leading him by millions and millions of votes, and I'm leading him by 400 delegates. He cannot win."
