Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) recently questioned Donald Trump’s ability to handle difficult national-security matters, The New York Times reported Thursday.
According to the report, Cruz raised doubts about Trump at a private Manhattan fundraiser on Wednesday.
“Both of them I like and respect,” Cruz reportedly said of Trump and Ben Carson, another Republican presidential candidate.
“I don’t believe either one of them is going to be our president,” he added.
The Times’ Maggie Haberman and Matt Flegenheimer, citing attendees, wrote that Trump then brought up last week’s mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, and last month’s terror attack in Paris, France.
