Trump DEFENDS linking Ted Cruz’s father with Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald as he claims ‘they didn’t deny’ the two men were photographed together

  • Donald Trump defended his use of an unsubstantiated National Enquirer story to bash Ted Cruz’s father
  • He told ‘Fox & Friends’ on Tuesday about the story that linked Rafael Cruz to Fidel Castro and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy 
  • Ted Cruz later responded at a press conference calling Trump and the National Enquirer’s claims ‘nuts’ and ‘kooky’ 
  • On Wednesday Trump said ‘I think they didn’t deny it’ and insisted it was ‘not such a bad thing’ to promote the story
  • Cruz withdrew from the presidential race on Tuesday night after the Indiana primary, making Trump the presumptive GOP nominee

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee created a firestorm on Tuesday when he repeated a claim in the National Enquirer that the elder Cruz appeared in a picture alongside the future killer, handing out pro-Castro literature on a New Orleans street corner.

‘You know his father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald being shot,’ Trump said Tuesday on the ‘Fox & Friends’ program, 14 hours before the Texas senator dropped out of the race. ‘The whole thing is ridiculous.’

Two morning TV show hosts challenged him on his use of the unsubstantiated story as a cudgel against the father of the man he was trying to beat in the GOP primary.

‘All I was doing was referring to a picture that was reported, and in a magazine,’ Trump told ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ on Wednesday. ‘And I think they didn’t deny it. I don’t think anybody denied it.’
