Trump cites 9/11 in response to Cruz’s ‘New York values’ criticism!


The battle for Iowa is heating up and the bromance between el Trumpo and the Cruznado is over. Cruz has been using the line that Trump just represents “New York values” in order to emphasize the regional differences between his Texan roots, and Trump’s New York pedigree.

Well, el Trumpo pulled the ultimate trump card and started yelling 9/11 in response.

And there are a lot of people who agree with Trump, since New York is so intimately tied in our minds with 9/11:

However Cruz’s criticism is playing in the media, the goal is to win Iowa. If he takes Iowa then the “Trump is a winner” narrative is demolished, and establishes a toehold for Cruz to keep winning. That’s the political strategy he’s employing, even if it angers some in New York.*
