Washington, Feb 4: A day after his “humbling” second place finish in the first presidential nomiting contests, Republican frontrunner Dold Trump was back in form as he accused his vanquisher Ted Cruz of stealing the Iowa caucus. Attacking the arch conservative Texas setor Cruz in a series of tweets, the brash billioire questioned the outcome of Monday’s Iowa caucus that kicked off the 2016 presidential race and called for either new voting there or the results to be nullified. “Based on the fraud committed by Setor Ted Cruz during the Iowa Caucus, either a new election should take place or Cruz results nullified,” he wrote. “Ted Cruz didn’t win Iowa, he stole it,” Trump tweeted. “That is why all of the polls were so wrong and why he got far more votes than anticipated.” Cruz’s campaign dismissed Trump’s claims on Twitter with humour.
“Reality hit the reality TV star in Iowa, so nobody is talking about him now, so he’s trying to regain some attention on Twitter,” Cruz’s Communications Director Rick Tyler told CNN. “There are Twitter addiction support groups, so he should seek out his local chapter.” Cruz himself teased Trump on Twitter on Wednesday, suggesting his rival become a Democrat and linking to one of his anti-Trump ads. “Bernie is contesting #IA results. Maybe Dold should go back to IA & join the Ds. Bet they’d love #TrumpCare,” Cruz tweeted. (IANS)
