Donald Trump reacted to an attack from Ted Cruz by offering no apology for his Twitter post and blaming the Texas senator for starting the latest fight centered around the rivals’ wives.
I didn’t start the fight with Lyin’Ted Cruz over the GQ cover pic of Melania, he did. He knew the PAC was putting it out – hence, Lyin’ Ted!

The mud-slinging began when an anti-Trump PAC used a nude photo of Melania Trump in a campaign advertisement earlier this week. Though the PAC was not directly connected with Cruz, Trump re-tweeted a Twitter post comparing his own wife and an unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz.
The ball was then in Cruz’s court: He shot back calling the GOP front-runner “classless” and a “coward.”
“Donald, real men don’t attack women,” Cruz said in another Twitter post. “Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life.”
Cruz blasted Trump on Thursday calling the GOP front-runner “a sniveling coward” and warning him to “leave Heidi the hell alone.”
Trump’s latest response appeared unapologetic, blaming “Lyin’ Ted Cruz” for the fight because he knew about the PAC using Melania’s photo.
