Donald Trump Accuses ‘Desperate’ Ted Cruz, John Kasich of Collusion

The GOP frontrunner calls the pact between two candidates a “horrible act of desperation”

Donald Trump’s campaign called the new alliance between Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich “sad” and accused them of collusion “against one person who has only been a politician for 10 months.”

Last night, following a Fox News town hall event in Philadelphia, Cruz and Kasich’s campaigns issued separate statements announcing they would be teaming up to stop Trump.

Cruz will focus his attention on the upcoming primary in Indiana, while Kasich focuses on winning Oregon and New Mexico. The goal is simply to stop Trump from reaching the number of delegates that guarantee the GOP nomination.

Trump’s campaign sent out a statement shortly after, bashing Cruz and Kasich while mentioning that collusion “is often illegal in many other industries.”

“Yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are,” the release said. “Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged.”

Meanwhile, Trump responded with a series of Tweets, “Wow, just announced that Lyin’ Ted and Kasich are going to collude in order to keep me from getting the Republican nomination. DESPERATION!”

Check out the entire Trump campaign release:

It is sad that two grown politicians have to collude against one person who has only been a politician for ten months in order to try and stop that person from getting the Republican nomination.

Senator Cruz has done very poorly and after his New York performance, which was a total disaster, he is in free fall and as everyone has seen, he does not react well under pressure. Also, approximately 80% of the Republican Party is against him. Governor Kasich, who has only won 1 state out of 41, in other words, he is 1 for 41 and he is not even doing as well as other candidates who could have stubbornly stayed in the race like him but chose not to do so. Marco Rubio, as an example, has more delegates than Kasich and yet suspended his campaign one month ago. Others, likewise, have done much better than Kasich, who would get slaughtered by Hillary Clinton once the negative ads against him begin. 85% of Republican voters are against Kasich.

Collusion is often illegal in many other industries and yet these two Washington insiders have had to revert to collusion in order to stay alive. They are mathematically dead and this act only shows, as puppets of donors and special interests, how truly weak they and their campaigns are. I have brought millions of voters into the Republican primary system and have received many millions of votes more than Cruz or Kasich. Additionally, I am far ahead of both candidates with delegates and would be receiving in excess of 60% of the vote except for the fact that there were so many candidates running against me.

Because of me, everyone now sees that the Republican primary system is totally rigged. When two candidates who have no path to victory get together to stop a candidate who is expanding the party by millions of voters, (all of whom will drop out if I am not in the race) it is yet another example of everything that is wrong in Washington and our political system. This horrible act of desperation, from two campaigns who have totally failed, makes me even more determined, for the good of the Republican Party and our country, to prevail!
