Donald Trump was so unhappy about the Cruz Campaign's "Supreme Trust" ad that he sent a "cease and desist" letter demanding that the Cruz campaign immediately stop running the ad featuring Trump currently running in South Carolina. During an epic press conference Sen. Ted Cruz rejected Trump's frivolous demands. In its response the Cruz campaign said the ad is not an attempt to mislead the public:
The objective of the ad is precisely the opposite – to provide the voters of South Carolina with important and accurate information so that they can make an informed decision when they go to the polls.
The Cruz response goes on to say that every statement in the ad concerning Mr. Trump’s pro-abortion views comes from Mr. Trump’s own mouth. According to the Cruz campaign, the point of the ad is that they do not believe Mr. Trump’s recent campaign claim that he is pro-life and the voters should not believe Mr. Trump either:
"Mr. Trump’s implausible claim that he is pro-life doesn’t meet a reality test," said Rick Tyler, a campaign spokesman. "His words and actions simply cannot be reconciled. Mr. Trump last week said that Planned Parenthood does do wonderful things, but supporting Planned Parenthood is incompatible with holding the pro-life position Mr. Trump is now claiming."
It's good to see Cruz to respond to the Donald's constant threats to sue.
If Trump didn't care for "Supreme Trust" ad, he will have another melt down like those he had during the CBS South Carolina Republican Debate over the "Donald's Choice" ad released Wednesday by the Cruz-supporting Courageous Conservatives PAC. The ad goes on to reference three names Trump has floated as possible replacements for Justice Scalia. Watch the ad:
Justice Scalia’s death reminds us the next President will pick as many as four Supreme Court Justices and hundreds of other federal judges.
Just who would Donald Trump pick?
One person Trump suggested took Roy Moore off the Alabama Supreme Court for displaying the Ten Commandments.
Another forced Indiana to fund Planned Parenthood.
And one more who threw out New Jersey’s Partial Birth Abortion Ban.
Everything is on the line now: our rights.
Our freedoms. Our America. And the courts are the battleground.
So who do you trust? Who do you trust to fill our federal courts?
Donald Trump with his New York values?
Or Ted Cruz, who won cases before the Supreme Court protecting gun rights, religious freedom and against the World Court.
Saturday’s our last chance South Carolina!
Don’t blow it.
Ted Cruz. For President.
Let’s take our country back. Now. Before It’s Too Late.
The three judges are Alabama’s former Attorney General Bill Pryor, who in 2003 backed a decision to oust Chief Justice Roy Moore from his position for refusing to follow a federal court order that he remove a monument of the Ten Commandments from the front of the state’s judicial building. Seventh Circuit Judge Diane Sykes, who authored an opinion striking down an Indiana law that would have defunded Planned Parenthood, and Trump’s older sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, who in her first year as an appellate judge for the Third Circuit wrote a decision that overturned a New Jersey law banning late-term abortions.
