Right after Ted Cruz’s speech at the RNC on Wednesday, Donald Trump said the lack of endorsement from the Texas senator was “no big deal”. Many pundits and journalists believe that Cruz’s decision not to back Donald will end up hurting his own political career not Trump’s.
“I like Ted, he’s fine,” the GOP nominee said in press conference on Friday. “I don’t need his endorsement. If he gives it to me, I will not accept it.”
“He should have done it,” Trump continued. “He would have been in better shape in four years.”
Trump added: “He’s got intellect, but he didn’t use it.”
