Trump Hits Back At Cruz: ‘I Have Far Better Judgement’ Than He Does

Republican presidential candidate took a hit in an interview aired Sunday at another Republican seeking the nomination, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who had criticized The Donald behind closed doors.

The New York Times obtained audio of Cruz questioning Trump’s “judgement” during a private event. Trump called Cruz, who had refrained from criticizing the real estate mogul, out on Twitter to critique him in public.

But Trump addressed the comments again in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“I was against going into Iraq,” Trump said. “That’s good judgment. I was for bombing oil long before anyone else was talking about it. That’s good judgment. I have great judgment. I would say I have far better judgment than Ted.”
