ABC’s Jonathan Karl interviewed Donald Trump on Sunday, opening the conversation with a question about the National Enquirer story that alleges Cruz has had multiple affairs with many different women since he’s been married to Heidi.
Karl asks, “Do you categorically guarantee that nobody on your campaign, nobody tied to you campaign, had anything to do with this National Enquirer story?
Trump responds, “Totally, I had nothing to do with it, the campaign had absolutely nothing to do with it. He’s got a problem with the National Enquirer, I have no control over the National Enquirer, I didn’t even know about the story. I just got it last night; somebody sent it to me over to read so I could at least see what it said.”
He continues, “I had nothing to do whatsoever with the National Enquirer and neither did the campaign. And I will tell you, for him to try and say that I had to do with it, to try and put the shoe on the other foot is disgraceful. And by the way, he’s the one that started it. And from what I hear he and his campaign went out and bought the cover shoot.”
Trump notes, “From what I hear, somebody bought the rights to it and he was the one or is campaign bought the rights and they gave it to the Super PAC. And just so you understand, that Super PAC is very friendly to Ted Cruz, he knew all about it 100%. So he started it, I didn’t start it.”
Karl tries to take it a little further, asking Trump “should this kind of thing just be off limits, do you condemn this story?” Trump replied, “I don’t care, I mean really, I don’t care. The National Enquirer did a story, it was their story, it wasn’t my story. It was about Ted Cruz, I have no idea whether it was right or not. They actually have a very good record of being right but I have absolutely no idea.
He adds, “Frankly, I said, I hope it’s not right.”
