Oh my, it looks like Donald Trump is angry with Ted Cruz:

According to the New York Times, Cruz recently told fundraisers that he was convinced voters would flock to him — rather than to Trump or Ben Carson — because of national security and foreign policy concerns:

You look at Paris, you look at San Bernardino, it’s given a seriousness to this race, that people are looking for: Who is prepared to be a commander-in-chief? Who understands the threats we face? Who am I comfortable having their finger on the button? Now that’s a question of strength, but it’s also a question of judgment. And I think that is a question that is a challenging question for both of them.

It’s an incredibly mild form of criticism, but it’s apparently enough to set off The Donald.

My advice to the billionaire businessman is to Let. It. Go. Ted Cruz’s conservative credentials are significantly more impressive than his, which means he can’t possibly outflank the senator on the right… and if he comes swinging at Cruz from the left, chances are he’ll end up losing his own conservative supporters.
