An aide to Donald Trump on Friday fulfilled the businessman’s threat to “spill the beans” on Republican presidential rival Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi.
Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson rattled off a list of attacks three days after Trump first made the threat.
“Spilling the beans is quite simple when it comes to Heidi Cruz,” Pierson said in an interview with MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki.
“She is a Bush operative; she worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country; she was a member on the Council on Foreign Relations who — in Sen. Cruz’s own words, called a nest of snakes that seeks to undermine national sovereignty; and she’s been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank that Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure,” Pierson said.
“Her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for,” she added.
Cruz spokeswoman Alice Stewart responded to the remarks in a statement to The Hill, saying, “There’s no low the Trump campaign won’t go.”
Ted Cruz has repeatedly slammed Trump for attacking his wife, describing Trump on Thursday as a “sniveling coward” and telling the businessman to “leave Heidi the hell alone.”
Earlier in the MSNBC interview, Pierson said “this isn’t about Heidi Cruz, this is about Melania Trump. Melania Trump was the one that was attacked.”
Trump’s campaign has pointed to an ad in Utah earlier this week from an anti-Trump super-PAC that showed Melania Trump posing nude from a magazine photo shoot in January 2000.
