Trump Again Denies Any Involvement in Enquirer Story

Trump Again Denies Any Involvement in Enquirer Story

 Donald Trump says he “had nothing to do with” a story published in the National Enquirer alleging Texas Senator Ted Cruz, his rival to be the Republican party’s 2016 presidential nominee, has had extramarital affairs.

But he did accuse Cruz of maligning his wife, Melania Trump.

Trump slammed rival Cruz for the recent ad produced by an anti-Trump super-PAC featuring a photo of Trump's wife posing nude.
 
"From what I hear, he and his campaign went out and bought the cover shoot.  Melania did a cover story for 'GQ,' a very strong modeling picture.  No big deal," Trump said on ABC's "This Week."

"But it was a cover story for 'GQ,' a big magazine.  And it was, you know, fine.  And from what I hear, somebody bought the rights to it and he was the one or his campaign bought the rights and they gave it to the super PAC."

Trump issued his own denial of his campaign’s involvement in the telephone interview on ABC.

“The campaign had absolutely nothing to do with it,” Trump said on the show. He stopped short of condemning the story. “I have no idea whether it was right or not. They actually have a very good record of being right, but I have absolutely no idea.”

The story quotes an anonymous source alleging that private detectives are looking into at least five affairs Cruz supposedly had. In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Cruz called the piece “tabloid smear” that “came from Donald Trump and his henchmen.”

“These are complete made-up lies,” Cruz said. “They’re garbage, but it’s indicative of just how low Donald Trump will go.”

The battle between the GOP hopefuls has grown increasingly personal of late. After an ad from an anti-Trump group called “Make America Awesome” featured suggestive pictures of his wife Melania, the Republican frontrunner fired back in a tweet.

“Lyin’ Ted Cruz just used a picture of Melania from a G.Q. shoot in his ad,” Trump tweeted on March 22. “Be careful, Lyin’ Ted, or I will spill the beans on your wife!”

The group the ad came from isn’t part of Cruz’s campaign, and the senator has denied involvement.
