In a one-on-one interview with Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin, Sen. Ted Cruz reacts to statements from Donald Trump that Sen. John McCain is “not a war hero.”
Cruz spoke at length about his respect and admiration for the Arizona senator and former Navy pilot, who spent over five years as a prisoner of war, before saying he will not “go into the gutter with personal attacks” against Trump – or any Democrats or Republicans for that matter. He pointed towards instances where other Republican presidential candidates such as Gov. Chris Christie, Sen. Rand Paul and former Gov. Mike Huckabee have attacked him and he’s chosen not to hit back.
“In my time in the Senate I haven’t impugned the character of Republicans or Democrats and I don’t intend to start today,” Cruz said.
