January 17, 2016 11:56 a.m.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump further attacked rival Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in an interview aired Sunday, calling him a “nasty guy.”

Trump made the comments during an interview with ABC’s “This Week.”

“I don’t think Ted Cruz has a great chance, to be honest with you,” Trump said. “Look, the truth is, he’s a nasty guy. He was so nice to me. I mean, I knew it. I was watching. I kept saying, ‘Come on Ted. Let’s go, OK.’ But he’s a nasty guy.”

Trump further argued that “nobody” likes Cruz.

“Nobody likes him. Nobody in Congress likes him,” Trump said. “Nobody likes him anywhere once they get to know him. He’s a very –- he’s got an edge that’s not good. You can’t make deals with people like that and it’s not a good thing. It’s not a good thing
for the country. Very nasty guy.”
