Everybody that loves the people of New York, and all they have been thru, should get hypocrites like Ted Cruz out of politics!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2016
Earlier today Trump slammed Cruz for accepting money from supporters of gay marriage and then taking a stand against it. He said on Twitter, "If Ted Cruz is so opposed to gay marriage, why did he accept money from people who espouse gay marriage?"

Greatly dishonest of @TedCruz to file a financial disclosure form & not list his lending banks- then pretend he is going to clean up Wall St— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 16, 2016
Former Florida Congressman and retired Marine Corps Lt. Colonel Allen West has weighed in on Trump's side, citing a Breitbart article that casts doubt on Cruz's eligibility to run for President.
