Donald Trump Again Hits Ted Cruz Over His Cuban Heritage In Iowa

Nati Harnik

During an Iowa campaign rally on Tuesday night, Donald Trump took a shot at rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), noting the senator's Cuban ancestry.

"You gotta remember. In all fairness, to the best of my knowledge, not too many evangelicals come out of Cuba, OK? Just remember that, OK? Just remember," he told the crowd in Council Bluffs, Iowa. "When you're casting your ballot, remember."

Trump made the comments while discussing Cruz's support in the polls, according to Business Insider.

The real estate mogul made a similar comment earlier in December during a town hall event in Des Moines, Iowa.

"I do like Ted Cruz, but not a lot of evangelicals come out of Cuba," Trump said on Dec. 11.

Trump and Cruz have largely avoided criticizing each other throughout the presidential campaign, but as Cruz has gained momentum in Iowa, Trump has begun to bash the Texas senator.
