Donald Trump proved once again on Tuesday that he’s an equal opportunity insulter, especially when it comes to winning and burnishing his billion dollar image.

That’s why as GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is proving to be a formidable enemy ahead of the all-important Iowa primaries, the party’s front-runner is turning to an old tactic: Birtherism, or raising questions about Cruz’s birthplace.

Republican Presidential Candidates Hold Third Debate In Colorado

Trump tried unsuccessfully to use the strategy to destroy President Barack Obama during the last two election cycles, but it was a career builder rather than a career-ending moment for the Prez.

Now, Trump is testing the strategy to see if he can use it to bring down Cruz, calling his opponent’s Canadian birthplace a “‘very precarious’ issue that could make the senator from Texas vulnerable if he became the Republican presidential nominee,” writes The Washington Post.

From The Post:

“Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic. “It’d be a very precarious one for Republicans because he’d be running and the courts may take a long time to make a decision. You don’t want to be running and have that kind of thing over your head.”


Cruz’s mother was a U.S. citizen when he was born in Calgary in 1970; his father was born in Cuba. Cruz has long said that because his mother is a citizen by birth, he is one as well and fits under the definition of a natural-born citizen. Since his election to the Senate, Cruz has released his birth certificate and renounced his Canadian citizenship.

Trump added: “I’d hate to see something like that get in his way. But a lot of people are talking about it and I know that even some states are looking at it very strongly, the fact that he was born in Canada and he has had a double passport.”

Right, Trump; we believe that you’d “hate to see” Cruz’s birthplace issue get in the way of his presidential candidacy.

Meanwhile, Trump sparked a Twitter fight with Samuel L. Jackson on Tuesday after the actor was interviewed by United Airlines’ Rhapsody magazine, in which he noted that Trump isn’t trustworthy on the golf course, reports CNN:

He said that he golfs with Trump from time to time and that when asked who’s a better golfer, Jackson responded, “Oh, I am for sure. I don’t cheat.”

He also has said that Trump billed him in the past at one of his clubs without his knowledge.

“But it’s funny — last week or so, I actually got a bill from Trump National Golf Club,” he told Rhapsody. “And I haven’t been there in four or five years, so I had my assistant call. They said it was for membership dues. And I said, ‘I’m not a member,’ and they said, ‘Yeah, you are — you have a member number.’ Apparently he’d made me a member of one of his golf clubs, and I didn’t even know it!”

Clearly, Trump was not having any of that talk without a response. He tweeted: 

Jackson appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers to discuss the dust-up. Watch the video above and let us know in the comments who you think will win this Twitter battle.
