Team Trump orchestrated outrage at Cruz during RNC & other claims

Trump obsesses about Ted Cruz during speech to RNC volunteers the day after he accepts the nomination for president

In the wake of the booing at Ted Cruz’s speech at the Republican National Convention this week, allegations that have been buzzing around in relation to Trump’s evident-attempt to destroy Ted Cruz’s career have come to light and should be explored:

  • Trump’s campaign had Ted Cruz’s speech well in advance,
  • Trump surrogates sought to encourage boo’s during Ted Cruz’s speech,
  • Texas delegates furious with Cruz,
  • Sheldon Adelson refused to allow Ted Cruz in his suite after Cruz declined to endorse Donald Trump,
  • Trump surrogates are now actively attempting to unseat Ted Cruz as Texas Senator,
  • On the day after his acceptance speech, Trump denied that he insulted Heidi Cruz and again questioned whether Ted Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination.

Trump’s campaign had Ted Cruz’s speech well in advance

Donald Trump tweeted that he saw Cruz’s speech “two hours early.” But as reported at the Washington Examiner,

Cruz adviser Jason Johnson additionally claimed that Cruz “made it clear to Trump during an in-person meeting in Washington a few weeks ago that he would not endorse him…”

As also revealed at Twitchy, Trump surrogates had the speech well in advance. One of the most compelling tweets illustrating this is from Sean Davis of The Federalist.

If Trump knew weeks in advance that Ted Cruz was not planning to endorse him, why was there endless media speculation, particularly on the day of Ted Cruz’s speech, about whether an endorsement would be forthcoming?

Donald Trump did not honor the pledge back in March, as reported at Fox News.

Here is the video (Thanks, Politistick):

David Harsanyi of The Federalist additionally pointed out:

An interesting observation from Glenn Thrush of Politico on July 18 2016 (before Ted Cruz’s speech) offers an explanation as to why Cruz was invited to speak, despite the fact that Cruz would likely not offer an endorsement of Donald Trump:

Trump surrogates sought to encourage boo’s during Ted Cruz’s speech

Senator Ted Cruz presented a clear vision of conservatism during his speech. So at an RNC convention, why did people boo? Could it be, perhaps, that they were encouraged?

Pro-Cruz delegate Kendal Unruh from Colorado told that Trump surrogates “whipped the booing” in the “middle of the New York and CA delegations.” Unruh claimed that both RNC staff and some delegates were involved.

Kendal Unruh is not the only one who made the claim. Colorado pro-Cruz delegate Melanie Sturm (read her column here) told that she was by the Georgia delegation during Senator Cruz’s speech, to be as close to the stage as possible. Sturm explained that she “felt the eye of yellow-hatted overseers [RNC staff and volunteers] watching my every applause.”

She continued:

Some also tweeted about the agitators:

With this in mind, consider Trump’s comments here:

Texas delegates furious with Cruz

It was reported that Texas delegates were furious with Ted Cruz and indeed, some pro-Trump Delegates vocally condemned Ted Cruz for not endorsing Donald Trump.

As reported at the Washington Examiner:

But consider the tone of some of the reporting:

Now consider a video posted of Ted Cruz walking into the Texas delegation breakfast:

As noted at the local ABC affiliate:

Sheldon Adelson refused to allow Ted Cruz in his suite after Cruz declined to endorse Donald Trump

As reported at, this story appears to be a complete fabrication.

The truth was reported at the Daily Wire and the Times of Israel, who cited Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who disputed the reports. Rabbi Shmuley Boteach also said in a Facebook post:

The story about the Suite snub appears to have been started at CNN, who interviewed “a senior aide” to Sheldon Adelson named Andy Abboud:

This author has reached out to Abboud:


Trump surrogates are now actively attempting to unseat Ted Cruz as Texas Senator

Is it possible that Donald Trump is so infuriated with Ted Cruz for his lack of endorsement that he would want to take part in actively campaigning against him as he seeks re-election to the U.S. Senate? Is Donald Trump the type of man who would want to take down one of the few truly constitutional senators out of spite?

Considering that during a speech given to RNC volunteers on Friday, Donald Trump bizarrely and incoherently took his time to trash Senator Ted Cruz, revenge is not outside the realm of possibility. During his rant, Trump wondered whether he would be allowed to set up a Super PAC to fight Ted Cruz, should Cruz decide to seek the presidency in 2020.

He said, as reported at the Daily Wire:

According to TheBlaze, Trump enforcer Roger Stone met with InfoWars founder Alex Jones to “discuss organizing a primary challenge to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) after the former Republican presidential candidate declined to endorse GOP nominee Donald Trump.”

If Donald Trump was initially unaware of this scheme, surely he would have heard by now. Giving Trump the benefit of the doubt that he has absolutely nothing to do with it, one would think that at the very least, Trump would request his cronies to focus their efforts elsewhere.

“We’re actively looking for a candidate,” Stone told The Hill.

Trump doubles down on fake assertions about Ted Cruz’s father

As reported at the Daily Wire and alluded to above, Donald Trump went on a truly. insane. rant. against Senator Ted Cruz during his comments made to RNC volunteers less than 24 hours after he accepted the Republican nomination for the presidency.

Here is a small part of Trump’s speech. One has to wonder what is going through Mike Pence’s head as Donald Trump once again attempts to link Ted Cruz’s father to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
