Ted Cruz warned Donald Trump not to "attack women" Thursday after the Republican front-runner appeared to escalate the personal feud over their wives, NBC News reported.
"Donald, real men don't attack women," the Texas senator wrote after the billionaire retweeted an image in which Heidi Cruz was compared unflatteringly to Melania.
The exchange came after Trump showed no sign of backing down in the dispute over a campaign ad, created by the anti-Trump Make America Awesome Again super PAC, featuring an old picture of Melania Trump posing nude for GQ magazine.
Trump responded by making a threat regarding Cruz’s wife Heidi Cruz. The real estate mogul tweeted that the Texas senator should "be careful" or he would "spill the beans on your wife.”
