Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump defended the strength and size of his hands while speaking at a Saturday-night press conference.
“I didn’t get into this to beat up on other candidates, I really didn’t”, Rubio said.
Trump added, “I would love to take on Ted one on one. It would cause a revolt”, Mr. Cruz told reporters at a campaign stop in Orono, Maine. They are trying to use powerful magnets to drive voters away from Trump but at the moment they don’t have a single magnet to draw in the voters leaving the front-runner.
I have been a Republican and a conservative all of my adult life.
Cruz also accused the media of not being tough enough on Trump, saying they’re giving him a free pass and free media on some issues because they want him to be the GOP nominee and lose to Democrat Hillary Clinton in November. “I have never tried to go and get into these kind of scrums that we’re seeing here on the stage and people say everywhere I go, ‘you seem to be the adult on the stage’”.
Some Republicans have suggested that Ryan, who was drafted for speaker after John Boehner unexpectedly resigned, throwing the House Republican caucus deeper into chaos than it already was, could play the same role for the GOP at a contested convention this summer.
Romney announced previous year he wouldn’t seek the presidency in 2016 after having meeting with Jeb Bush.
Mitt Romney said that some of Donald Trump’s recent comments are “characteristically disgusting”, and he wasn’t even talking about Thursday night when the billionaire bragged about the heat he’s packing in his trousers. Trump in return responded with “And, he referred to my hands – ‘if they’re small, something else must be small.’ I guarantee you there’s no problem”. Florida is a competitive state, there’s a lot of people who live in Florida, that vote in Florida, that don’t live there year round.
“The time came when Donald Trump’s outrage had reached such a level that I simply had to speak out”.
“At the outset of this campaign, I promised I would support the Republican nominee”, he said.
Trump, with 10 state victories, leads the field with 329 delegates.
