Donald Trump: Why I donated to Ted Cruz

NY Governor-Trump

By JONATHAN TOPAZ – Politico.com

Donald Trump isn’t ready to make his presidential endorsement just yet.

The real estate magnate clarified on Monday that a donation he made to Ted Cruz’s political action committee doesn’t mean that he’s supporting Cruz for president in 2016.

Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” Trump praised Cruz, saying, “He’s a nice guy. I get along with him.” But when asked whether his donation signaled his support for Cruz, he said, “No, it doesn’t.”

Last week, it was reported that Trump donated $5,000 to Cruz’s political action committee in January, prompting some to suggest that Trump might be backing the Texas Republican for a possible 2016 White House run.

Explaining the contribution, Trump on Monday also noted that Cruz had spoken at the developer’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Florida. At an event in February, Trump called the senator “a very special guy” and joked that he liked Cruz because “he’s not controversial.”
