Cruz Hit With ‘Cease And Desist’ Letter From Trump, Responds In EPIC Way

On Tuesday, Donald Trump’s attorney sent a cease and desist letter to Ted Cruz’s campaign in regards to what they call a “defamatory attack ad” that has been running in South Carolina ahead of the primary.

“Simply stated, your Attack Ad is not only completely disingenuous, but replete with outright lies, false, defamatory and destructive statements and downright fabrications which you fully know to be untrue, thereby exposing you and the Cruz for President campaign to liability for damages and other tortious harm,” Trump’s lawyer states in the letter. “For example, while your Attack Ad blatantly misrepresents to the public that Mr. Trump is ‘pro-choice’, nothing could be further from the truth.”

Judge the ‘attack ad’ for yourself…

Cruz and his campaign wasted no time in responding to Trump’s letter: 

“Your true objection seems to be that the video of Mr. Trump’s admission that he ‘is very pro-choice,’ is out of date and now inconsistent with his campaign statements that he is now pro-life. But one obvious point of the ad is that we do not believe Mr. Trump’s recent campaign claim that he is pro-life is credible and, more importantly, the voters should not find it credible either.  Notably, your letter fails to provide any explanation whatsoever for why Mr. Trump’s continued support of pro-abortion organizations, candidates, and officeholders does not accurately portray his long-held position on the issue.  While tens of millions of voters have come to expect Mr. Trump’s grandiose protestations without the slightest bit of detail, our campaign holds details in high regard.  Therefore, I have included a few below for your consideration.”

The letter then proceeds to list off the numerous donations that Trump has made to the Democratic Party and the many different Democratic pro-choice candidates and officeholders. 

After listing off the examples of why they believe Trump is not as deeply “pro-life” as he portrays, Cruz’s lawyer basically dares Trump to sue him. 

“In conclusion, I would be remiss if I didn’t state the obvious: The truth is an absolute defense to defamation claim,” the letter states. “Therefore, your client has no legal basis to demand that our campaign cease airing the ad, and your demand for ‘prompt written assurances’ that we have pulled the spot will not be forthcoming.  To the contrary, we now plan to air the ad with greater frequency.”
