Jindal: Ted Cruz Should Stop Sucking Up to 'Madman' Trump

Jindal: Ted Cruz Should Stop Sucking Up to 'Madman' Trump
Ted Cruz and Donald Trump (Al Drago/CQ Roll Call)

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal continued his assault on presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Tuesday in an op-ed on CNN.com.

"Jeb Bush, Rand Paul and Rick Perry admirably called Trump out for his conservative heresy, but it backfired because he doesn't give a hoot about conservatism," Jindal wrote one day before the second GOP presidential debate. "Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is clinging to Trump like a limpet to an oil tanker, hoping to suck up his votes when Trump eventually sinks."

Jindal called on conservatives to say what they all are thinking: "Donald Trump is a madman who must be stopped."

Failure to do so is essentially an endorsement of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton, he said.

Jindal's op-ed was a reiteration of his Thursday speech to the National Press Club in which he said Trump is not a Republican or a Democrat, but is in the race only for himself.

"The problem with Donald Trump is that he will never be president. His nomination as the Republican candidate would gift the White House to Hillary Clinton," Jindal wrote. "He would self-destruct in a general election. In fact, he may be Clinton's only hope. And even if he were somehow to win, we have no idea how he would govern."
