Ted Cruz is mocking his Republican presidential rival Donald Trump in a campaign video released this week while portraying the front-runner as a child’s plaything.

“Look, I got the Trump action figure!” a young boy says in the video, approaching a pair of other children while showing off a toy figure of Trump. “No way, it’s yuuuge,” another boy responds. 
 
{mosads}“What does he do?” one asks. “He pretends to be a Republican!” his friend responds.
 
The three then mock the real estate tycoon by play-acting the doll’s positions and history, including donations to Democrats.
“I like bailouts for the banks!” a boy says, pretending to speak for the mock toy of Trump.

“I gave money to Pelosi, Reid and Anthony Weiner,” another boy says as they all giggle.

 
“Hey Hillary, I’ll give you money to be my friend,” one says, portraying a conversation between action figures of Trump and Hillary Clinton, his Democratic presidential rival. 
 
An adult voice cuts in as the children destroy a toy house with the Trump doll to depict his support of eminent domain, stating, “We wouldn’t tolerate these values in our children. Why would we want them in a president?”
 
Trump has defended his past use of eminent domain, including last month when he called another ad from Cruz’s campaign going after him “wrong” on the issue. He’s also acknowledged his donations to Democrats, saying that, as a businessman, he gets along with everyone.
 
The pair are battling heading into the South Carolina primary later this month after Cruz won the Iowa caucus last week and Trump won the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday.
