USA: Ted Cruz condemns Trump and Rubio at Iowa campaign rally

United States, Sioux City
January 31, 2016 at 05:41 GMT +00:00 · Published

Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz slammed his competitors Donald Trump and Marco Rubio at a campaign event in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday, accusing Trump of trying to expand ObamaCare and criticising Rubio for his promise to grant amnesty to illegal migrants.

"Donald Trump right now today as a presidential candidate is advocating full-on socialised medicine, expanding ObamaCare and putting the government in charge of the relationship with your doctor," Cruz pointed out.

He went on to pass censure on Rubio: "If I will be elected, there will be no amnesty. We will secure the borders and keep this country safe. That's why Steve King is co-chairing my national campaign because Steve King and I fought side by side to successfully defeat the Schumer-Rubio amnesty bill."

"But the question you should ask is who actually has taken on Washington? Who's taken on not just Democrats, but leaders in our own party? And if you want to know who will take on Washington and who has - you should ask yourself. Who is Washington attacking? That reveals a great deal," the Texas senator confidently concluded.

The event was held on the eve of the Iowa caucuses, where Cruz will face-off against rivals Trump and Rubio, among others. The latest polls show that currently Trump has a slight lead over the Texas Senator.
