Trump’s “Huge Victory” in NY a Ruse

“As the media are breathlessly reporting, Donald Trump won his home state, truly a remarkable achievement,” Mr. Cruz said sarcastically. “Upon winning his home state, Donald, with a characteristic display of humility, declared this race is over. Manhattan has spoken as if the rest of the voters should quietly go home and allow him to give this general election to Hillary.”

Mr. Cruz noted that he won more votes in the April 5 Wisconsin primary than Mr. Trump took Tuesday in New York, where in one Bronx congressional district Mr. Trump prevailed with just 636 votes. Mr. Cruz urged Pennsylvania Republicans to reject the idea that they should take cues from New York voters who backed Mr. Trump.

“Let me tell you what Donald and the media wants to convince everybody, that Pennsylvania is a suburb of Manhattan,” Mr. Cruz said. “They’re telling you, Manhattan has spoken and Pennsylvania will file quietly into obedience. Let me tell you, I’ve got a lot more faith in the people of Pennsylvania.”
