Trump Spokeswoman: 'Quite Simple to Spill the Beans on Heidi Cruz'

MSNBC

It's "quite simple to spill the beans on Heidi Cruz," as "her entire career has been spent working against everything Ted Cruz says that he stands for," Katrina Pierson, Donald Trump's campaign spokesperson, said Friday.

"She's a Bush operative," Pierson told MSNBC Friday morning. "She worked for the architect of NAFTA, which has killed millions of jobs in this country. She was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, who Cruz's own words called a nest of snakes.

"And, she's been working for Goldman Sachs, the same global bank Ted Cruz left off of his financial disclosure and also has chairman on the board of the Federal Reserve, which is something Sen. Cruz promised to audit, and didn't show up for the vote."

Trump had threatened to expose Cruz's wife, without stating specifics, after an anti-Trump super PAC posted a nude photograph of his wife, Melania, from 16 years ago, when she posed for British GQ magazine. 

Thursday, the feud between the two GOP presidential candidates heated up even further, when Cruz called Trump a "sniveling coward" and warned him to "leave Heidi the hell alone."

Pierson, though, on Friday defended Trump, saying that it was his wife that came under attack first, but then after Trump stood up for her, "all of a sudden, there's this faux attack on Heidi Cruz."

"It may not have been directly from the Cruz campaign, but this super PAC was operating on behalf of Ted Cruz, Pierson said of the initial advertising, which was aimed at Utah voters.  From the beginning, since Mr. Trump entered the race, he disavowed all super PACs."

She said she does not believe the controversy will hurt Trump among women voters.

"We have been hearing this for a very long time," she said. "He has been winning women and he's going to continue winning women because women care more about the education of their children, their safety and security and their jobs in this country."
