Ted Cruz says Donald Trump is ‘scared to debate’ and ‘looks down on voters’

Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas says GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump is scared to debate, he thinks “voters can’t figure out that he’s not telling the truth” and just “looks down on voters.”

Trump is claiming that he has a prior commitment to speak at a policy conference hosted by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), said Wednesday he would not be attending the GOP presidential debate that had been scheduled for March 21. The debate was ultimately cancelled.

“His excuse is silliness, and it reflects his assumption that he thinks the voters can’t figure out that he’s not telling [them] the truth,” Cruz said on Wednesday evening’s “The Kelly File” on Fox News.

Cruz pointed out that the conference hosted by AIPAC is a multi-day event, runs to Tuesday, and Trump’s schedule would likely have been accommodated.

“He chose to speak right in the middle of the debate [because] he’s scared to debate,” Cruz said.

“And, you know, he just, he looks down on the voters,” Cruz said. “He thinks they’re gullible and will believe whatever he’s saying. So I’m going to be in D.C. for AIPAC as well since Donald is running away from the debate. I’m happy to debate him there. If he wants, we can debate foreign policy, but the problem is, Donald doesn’t do very well in foreign policy [because] he doesn’t have even a basic modicum of knowledge.”

Cruz says he’s primed to debate Trump, in Utah, in Washington DC…whereever – “But I suspect Donald will continue running and hiding and basking in the protection from the network media that is trying to do everything they can to make him the nominee, because they know he’s the one candidate on the face of the planet that Hillary Clinton can beat in the general election…”

The Trump campaign issued a statement as the candidate took to twitter with attacks at Kelly, Fox and Cruz.

“According to all the online polls, and the voters for that matter, Mr. Trump has won all the debates. Mr. Trump looks forward to speaking at AIPAC on Monday,” said the statement from the campaign.

A few tweets Thursday morning in response: “Crazy @megynkelly supposedly had lyin’ Ted Cruz on her show last night. Ted is desperate and his lying is getting worse. Ted can’t win!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

“Great news that @FoxNews has cancelled the additional debate. How many times can the same people ask the same question? I beat Cruz debating,” he also tweeted.
