Donald Trump Targets Ted Cruz's Wife on Twitter Again

For the second night in a row, Trump tweeted about Ted Cruz's wife.

On Wednesday night, Trump retweeted a post showing a side by side image of Heidi Cruz and Trump’s wife, Melania. Text on the picture read: “No need to 'spill the beans.’ The images are worth a thousand words.”

Cruz quickly responded with a tweet of his own saying, "Donald, real men don't attack women. Your wife is lovely, and Heidi is the love of my life.”

Prior to firing off the latest round in the Twitter feud between the two men, Trump defended his actions to Fox Business.

"I wrote, I said be careful because otherwise I'll have to start talking about you know -- your situation. Now, do I like doing that? No," Trump told Fox Business.

Less than an hour before Trump's latest attack, Cruz addressed Trump’s targeting of his wife at a campaign event in Pewaukee, Wisconsin.

"You know folks were asking me today, 'Well, is Heidi upset that Donald Trump went after her?' And, listen, Heidi has been in the business world for over 20 years, she’s dealt with a lot of garbage in the business world. Women professionals deal with a lot of nonsense. She’s seen bullies her entire career and I’ll tell you, Heidi Cruz is not scared one iota by a bellowing Donald Trump,” Cruz said.
