Ted Cruz Ad: Donald Trump 'Doesn't Have No Heart'

  • by: Alan Duke

Ted Cruz has the gloves off in the fight for South Carolina. A new ad posted on YouTube by the Cruz campaign targets Donald Trump's use of imminent domain laws to build his billionaire real estate empire. A New Jersey woman who battled with Trump over her home, which was next to one of Trump's Atlantic City casino's, is heard saying "he doesn't have no heart, that man!" Trump has repeatedly defended using the government's power to force the sale of real estate for public use, but the Cruz ad accuses of Trump using the process for his personal gain.

The final line in the spot gets to the point: "Trump uses power for personal gain. Imagine the damage he could do as president."
