Ted Cruz takes aim at rivals Donald Trump and Marco Rubio in a video released Saturday afternoon that highlights their relationships with Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.
The three-minute video, titled "No More Deals," concludes with footage of Trump claiming that "guys like Ted Cruz will never make a deal." The video suggests that's a good thing.
The video points out that Trump, a New York real estate billionaire and reality TV star, has expressed admiration and praise for Hillary Clinton, and has donated to the Clinton Foundation.
It references Trump's claims that he would be able to cut deals with congressional Democratic leaders House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Harry Reid, D-Nev. Both are disliked by conservatives.
The ad even dredges up footage from "The Apprentice," Trump's reality show, in which Trump calls Schumer, the New York Democrat set to be the next Democratic Leader in the Senate, "a good friend of mine."
The ad also includes video of Schumer discussing how hard Rubio worked with him to try to pass comprehensive immigration reform. The Florida senator has taken heat from his presidential rivals for teaming with Schumer on the bill.
It wraps up with roll of congressional GOP leaders discussing making deals with their Democratic counterparts, before ending with Trump's warning that Cruz won't cut deals.
