Trump: I Knew But I Let Ted Cruz Speak Anyway

From the New York Post:

Donald Trump is reacting to Ted Cruz’s convention speech, saying the address that drew loud boos Wednesday at the Republican National Convention was “No big deal!”

Trump says on Twitter that Cruz “didn’t honor” the pledge that Republican primary candidates had made to support the eventual GOP nominee.

Trump says he saw Cruz’s speech two hours early “but let him speak anyway.”

Cruz aides said the Texas senator informed Trump on Monday that he wouldn’t endorse him. He urged convention attendees to “vote your conscience” and never endorsed Trump in his 20-plus minute speech.

Some are wondering if Trump could have actually blocked Cruz from speaking in the first place. The non-endorsement is a huge embarrassment for Breitbart, whose “insider scoop” that Cruz would endorse got wide notice.
