Trump Doubles Down On Cruz's Wife: 'There Are Things About Heidi' That People Should 'Look Up'

Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump on Sunday insisted that he had no connection to a National Enquirer report suggesting that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had affairs with multiple women, but noted that the tabloid had a "very good record of being right."

Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump on Sunday insisted that he had no connection to a National Enquirer report suggesting that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) had affairs with multiple women, but noted that the tabloid had a "very good record of being right."

During an interview with ABC News, Trump insisted that his threat to "spill the beans" on Cruz's wife, Heidi, only came after the Texas senator "started it" by attacking his wife, Melania.

"The campaign has nothing to do with it," Trump said of the National Enquirer story. "I have no control over the National Enquirer. I didn't even know about the story, I just got it last night."

"The National Enquirer did a story, it wasn't my story," he added. "It was about Ted Cruz. I have no idea whether it was right or not. They actually have a very good record of being right."

According to Trump, Cruz's campaign had provided a near-nude photograph of Melania to group which used it in anti-Trump ads. But the billionaire declined to say what he meant by his threat to "spill the beans" on Heidi Cruz.

"There are things about Heidi that I don't want to talk about," Trump opined. "I'm not going to talk about them. I mean, you know, you could look, but I wouldn't talk about them."

"I'm just responding to what he does, I just respond, I counter-punch," he argued. "But always the press likes to make me the bad guy. He's the one that started it."
