As the presidential nominee race turned nasty, Ted Cruz called Trump a ‘coward’ and asked him to not drag his wife into this
Washington: The Republican presidential nominee race has hit a new low with front-runner Donald Trump and his nearest rival Ted Cruz dragging each other’s wives in their political squabbling which is rarely seen in American politics.

“Donald, you’re a snivelling coward. Leave Heidi the hell alone,” an angry Texas Senator said said hours after the real estate tycoon launched a series of attacks against his wife. Earlier, Trump shared an image on Twitter comparing his wife, Melania, a former model, to Cruz’s wife, stating, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
Cruz replied, “Donald, real men don’t attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life.” It all started with a super political affairs committee which campaigns for Cruz ran an ad with a nude picture of Melania.
An angry Trump tweeted that he would spill the beans on Cruz’s wife. Cruz, however, denied any role of his in the advertisement. “Donald, if you try to attack Heidi, you’re more of a coward than I thought,” Cruz said.
Trump is currently leading the Republican pack with Cruz far behind.
