Donald Trump reacted to Ted Cruz naming Carly Fiorina as his running mate, saying the Texas senator was “wasting his time” because he “has zero chance.”
“I just think it’s so early in the process. You have to first get the nomination. Here’s a guy picking a vice presidential candidate — he has zero chance. He has no path. It’s sort of crazy,” Mr. Trump said during “On The Record With Greta van Susteren” Wednesday. “It gets him in the news cycle because he’s been totally taken out. He had a horrible day yesterday, and he came in third — meaning third out of three most of the time.”
In a desperate attempt to stop the Trump Train from rolling over him in Indiana, where he has promised to repeat his victory in Wisconsin, Sen. Cruz became the first candidate mathematically eliminated from outright winning the nomination to ever name a running mate.
“If Indiana treats us right,” Mr. Trump said, sitting next to popular former Hoosier State head coach Bobby Knight. “We’re going to make America great again. We’re going to get rid of these politicians.”
Knight, nicknamed “The General,” endorsed the New York businessman and hit the stump with him in Indiana following a five-state sweep in the Northeast on Tuesday. Polls, including Cruz’s internal data, show Mr. Trump leading by a comfortable margin.
“Two days ago it was Cruz and Kasich, they were going to form an alliance and collude and go together, and Kasich didn’t live up to his side of the deal, they’re fighting with each other, and now he’s doing the Carly thing… I don’t see it. Number one it is very early.”
