CHAPIN, S.C. (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz is daring Donald Trump to go through with his threat to sue him for defamation.
A Cruz TV ad shows Trump in a 1999 interview speaking in support of abortion rights. Trump now says he opposes abortion.
Trump’s attorney sent Cruz a letter Tuesday charging the ad was “replete with outright lies, false, defamatory and destructive statements.”
At a CNN presidential forum Wednesday night, Cruz said to Trump, “Please Donald, file this lawsuit.”
